    A must visit attraction while in Montreal

    La Ronde amusement park is a must see attraction in Montreal. You can get there easily by metro (yellow line, longueuil station).
    The admission fee is 47 canadian $ for adults and 45 canadian $ for the children above 1.37 m.
    You can use all the machines with the same ticket as much as you wish.
    Using the highest wooden roller coaster in the world is highly recommended :)

    Great park for the whole family

    by juniperjune Written Aug 10, 2014

    This park has something for everyone. They have a section of rides, Ribambelle, for young children with 10 rides. They have daily shows with Ribambelle and the Z's. They sing and dance. There are about 6 daily shows. The other section of the park hosts rides that cater to all thrill levels.

    There are different events throughout the year. In July-Aug LaRonde hosts the L'International des Feux Loto-Québec, the worlds most prestigious fireworks competition. I love the fireworks, but it can be a huge hassle to leave. They have to close the bridge during the show, and it opens when all the people are off the bridge. So leaving the park is delayed. It can take 1.5 hours to exit the park. Be prepared. But the show is worth it. If you don't have young kids with you, you can stay at the park and they have an after party with the local radio station.

    They are Cirq-O that performs daily during the fireworks period. They are high flying acrobats and entertainers. The show is in the Agora and free admission to all.

    They have Christmas at Laronde with Santa and The Grinch. They help raise non perishable foods.

    This year they will be hosting their first Pride Day on Aug 15th.

    And Fright fest! They GO ALL OUT! The haunted houses are not what they were like when I was a kid. The decorations and people are so realistic! They also have people dressed up throughout the park with activities. They have people that are appropriate for kids as well!

    If you want to buy a season pass, buy it in September. If you buy in packs of 4+ they are just over $50 each, they upgrade you to gold, free parking and it is good until the end of the next year. We bought the dining pass and we get Lunch and dinner each time we go. Otherwise the meals will run you about $10 per person. The food is expensive otherwise. You can not bring in outside food, except for a kid under 3 years old (they get in free)

    The pay rides are GREAT! They have the catapult, the slingshot, the go karts and this year the 7D. We have coupons when bought our season passes, so they are cheaper. The kids love these rides.

    The lineups can be long, especially on holidays. If you go on a day where it is overcast, there are no lineups. The lineups can be long, especially for the newest rides. Le Monstre will ALWAYS have a lineup of 1 hr+. But it is AWESOME! It is the worlds largest 2 track wooden roller coaster.

    The bathrooms can get nasty. At the end of the day if a lot of kids tinkled on the floor, it is GROSS. This year they are better than last year, but still....

    Member of the Six Flags International family only since a few years, La Ronde is the biggest theme park in the Province of Quebec. 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... All prices mentionned are without taxes (16%)

    La Ronde Amusement Park

    by Lisser Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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 - an amusement park

    by fairy_dust Updated Sep 29, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    by Quartzy Written Aug 25, 2006

    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.

    The International Loto-Qu?bec Fireworks...

    by vibi68 Updated Jan 18, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is not to be missed; for the past 22 years Montreal's theme park La Ronde, has been the theater of magnificient firework competitions. The past editions have presented countries competing with the most vibrant pyrotechnical spectacles, such as France, China, Canada, U.S.A, Germany, Spain and many more others. You can buy tickets to enjoy them from the actual park's stage and be sure not to miss any of the ground fireworks, the prices of seats vary from around $35.00 to $50.00 and include entrance to the park itself and to most of its rides. If not, you can see the fireworks from any point of view along the St-Laurent's shore on a distance of about 5km, some places even further depending on the situation. A great place to view them is on the Jacques-Cartier bridge itself, which is closed to circulation from 21h00 for the occasion, as fireworks start at 22h00, from June 17th to July 29th on Saturdays OR Sundays, and on Saturdays and Wednesdays (from July 12th), wether it rains or not, the show goes on for about 30 minutes. Don't forget to tune your radios to Rythme FM 105.7 to enjoy the simultanious pyromusical program... it is a rendez-vous!
    For their 23rd year of production the 2006 International Loto-Qu?bec fireworks' competition program goes as followed:
    Sat. June 17th - Switzerland's 3rd time
    Sun. June 25th - Italy's 10th time
    Sun. July 2nd - Argentina's 2st time
    Sat. July 8th - South Africa's 1st time
    Wed. July 12th - Portugal's 1st time
    Sat. July 15th - Canada's 6th time
    Wed. July 19th - U.S.A.'s 1st time
    Sat. July 22nd - France's 3rd time
    Wed. July 26th - Australia's 3rd time
    Sat. July 29th - La Ronde' closing fireworks' 23nd time
    * note that the amount of participations is for different pyrotechnical co. and not countries themselves.

    Simply magical...

    La Ronde - Roller coasters to make you scream!

    by lotta29 Written Mar 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Dazzling Fireworks Display

    by Stellaluna Updated Jul 22, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Be sure to see the Montreal Fireworks throughout the month of July. Displays are shown on Wednesday and Saturday nights and will undoubtedly be among the best you will ever see. Grab a great view from the bridge and you will not regret it. Make sure you get into the narrow walkway before you get to the bridge. You cannot span the distance from the actual street to the walkway because of a steep drop. Take along a comfy packable chair and a radio (for listening to the La Ronde music and commentary. It's always best to take along a wind breaker or sweater. It can get very windy up on the bridge.

    Dress warm. Even in the summer months the wind blows strong on the bridge.

    Ooooo Ahhhh!!!

    by LeighAnne Written Feb 25, 2003

    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.
