With 35 rides such as the Boomerang, the Vertigo, the Manitou and many more others big thrills, it is sure to satify any rides freak as well as little ones, for whom a new section has been added with 6 new rides and 4 modified. Home to theaters and aquatic shows, it is also a great place to enjoy parties among friends in its restaurants and bars or even to attend the Loto-Quebec's International Firework competition. Picnics are tolerated on the site, as well as bringing your own drinks, provinding they are not in glass bottles. Lockers are available to store personal belongings at a small fee and parking is not problem, as the park has it's own very large parking area: price to park - $10,00. Adults (12 and up) get in for around $30.00 and children (3 to 11) for $20.00, seasonnal passes are available as well as tickets bought in advance through Admission.com services...

The park fills the northern reaches of the Île Ste-Hélène with a sailing lagoon, an "Enchanted Forest" with costumed storytellers, and a Western town with a saloon. There are also Ferris wheels, carousels, roller coasters, carnival booths, and plenty of places to eat and drink. Thrill-seekers will love rides like Le Boomerang, Le Monstre, and Le Cobra, a stand-up roller coaster that incorporates a 360° loop and reaches speeds in excess of 97km (60 miles) per hour. While many of the 35 rides test adult nerves and stomachs, there are ample attractions for youngsters, such as the Tchou Tchou Train and the Super Volcanozor, which combines 3-D images of dinosaurs with swooping, twirling transport among them.

La Ronde is a big amusement park on Ile-St.-Helene. It's similar to Canada's Wonderland. There are all sorts of rides for everyone - everything from kiddie rides for the little ones, to extreme roller coasters for those who'll try anything once. There are also water rides, which is great for cooling down on a hot summer day. You're guaranteed to have fun if you spend a day there.
La Ronde is the amusement park of Montreal. It is very popular - on very sunny days, you might find it hard to try more than 4 different rides because there are so many people waiting in line. My father tells me the wait is worse here than it was when we were in Disney World or in Canada's Wonderland, but I was too young and I don't remember, so I'm just taking his word for it.
The only way around the long waits is to purchase a VIP ticket: in addition to the regular entry price (which is pretty high already), you pay a small VIP fee, which allows you to skip the waiting line four or five times (can't remember exactly) on eligible rides. This might be useful for adults who are going with kids and still want to try "adult" rides - that way, the kids only wait a few minutes for you.
As in any amusement park, the food is pretty expensive so don't hesitate to bring your own lunch.
Here are the rides you shouldn't miss (in my humble opinion) : le Montre et le Boomerang (roller-coasters), la Pitoune and le Splash (rides in water, awesome when it's really hot outside) and le Disco-Ronde.
You can get there by car - the parking fee was 12$ last time I checked, I think. You can also go by metro, which will cost you 2,50$ CND.
La Ronde is an amusement park on Ile Ste-Helene with about 40 attractions. They've got some amazing (and frightening) roller coasters! I like them the most but the other rides are good too. The bad thing is you'll usually have to stand in the line for a long time (2 hours even!) to get on the most popular ones. But you'll get to scream and shout as much as you can!
La Ronde opens the 14th of May. Starting from June there are fireworks every weekend as a part of the Montreal International Fireworks Competition (le Mondial SAQ). You don't need to go all the way to La Ronde to see them thou.
La Rhonde, a Canadienns game or expos game, Mount Royal.
La Rhonde is where the expo 67 took place and a lot of things are still there... Canadienns game you can take in the new Molson centre... an expos game you can take in the famous olympic stadium and mount royale is worth the trek up the hill to overlook the beautiful city.
