La Ronde

My husband, stepson and I spent Wednesday at La Ronde amusement park in Montreal. We managed to get on a total of five, yes five, rides for the entire day. The lineups were crazy. If you go, spend the extra $10 and get the flash pass. If we had known about it, we certainly would have. We had planned a mid-week day on which there were no special events at the park, so we expect other days would be crazy busy.

Our favourite ride was Goliath. It has great up and down motion and you get some marvelous zero-g time. It also runs really smoothly so it is easier on the joints. It is one of the longer coaster rides I've been on. Apparently, it is a 3/4 size version of a standard Six Flags ride and it is the tallest coaster in Canada.

The stand-up coaster Cobra was hell. The harness was incredibly uncomfortable (hit the wrong spots in private areas) and the ride was jerky enough to leave all three of us with terrible headaches. My husband said he just gritted his teeth and hoped it would end quickly because it caused so much pain to his head with the jerkiness and the side-to-side motion that kept banging his ears against the harness. This comes from a man who loves all kinds of roller coasters.
