Construction at La Ronde and a great Haunted House

Sunday, October 12, 2003 11:37 AM
I just visited the park on Friday and have a few tidbits to share.

First of all, the haunted house they set up for Fright Fest is unbelievable. It's set up inside the Nintendo Dome and is about a 7-10 minute walk through full of twists and turns. The scenery in the haunted house is also top notch and is very realistic. Rustic bathrooms, creepy childerns rooms and even a creepy atic closet are all featured. Combine that with dozens of actors and great costumes and you have one hell of an experience. The attraction really provides you with many "Resident Evil" type shock scares. I can't re-iterate enough how great of an attraction this is. Six Flags really went all out for it. I suggest all the local La Ronde fans go to fright fest to check out the haunted house. It's well worth it.

Secondly, it appears that construction has begun at the park. Two twenty foot walls (similar to last years walls) were erected to block access to the Medieval Village. Looking through the cracks in the wall, I was able to see a bull doser. This co-incides with the rumoured location of the mini-golf section and employee parking lot. I've put the info up at and I'll be adding pictures of teh construction in about two weeks. Hopefully for us, we get that long awaited hyper.

I was just taking a peek at pictures from the park when I noticed a "double" skyride in the backgrounds of several pictures. Do you know anything about this ride? Does it cross a river? When was it built? Is one faster? Different cars? Run simultaneously?

Just curious...thanks.

Skyride hasn't run for about 8 years now. It does go over a lake. There were rumours that the reason for it's closure was the City of Montreal didn't have the money to repair it when they owned the park and that Six Flags has plans to re-open it in the near future. Personally, I think something should be done.. open it or take it down 'cus now it's just slowly rusting.
