Me and my friends are going up to Montreal next weekend. I'm the only one with the SF season pass. They'll hit La Ronde with me if they could save some money on admission. Any tips on how to procure coupons, as well as what to eat in the park and other important details will be greatly appreciated. *** Edited 6/26/2005 6:45:48 AM UTC by coy***

They cant scan your pass at the turnstile. Be sure to stop by guest relations to get a ticket with your pass.

Thanks for the warning. I am hoping they have a guest relations office outside the gates.

They have a Guest Relations office at the main gate left of the turnstiles.
As for your friends.. best deal is getting a marked Coke Can for 5$ off. (It is either 4 or 5$, I'll check on that).
As for rides, make sure you hit the Wild Mouse early! It only runs 3 cars and the line just crawls. Also, unless you have a small kid with you, they don't allow adults on any of the Pays de Rimambelle (new kid area) rides. Not even the kiddy coaster, which is for me the third best coaster in the park!

3 trains on their wild mouse. Typical SF ops. Great news about the coke can though. Thanks a bunch guys. How's the poutine btw? I heard its the local 'delicacy'.

Eat a beaver tail. That's really what they call it, just another member of the fried dough family. There is also a Italian food stand that sells a loaf garlic bread with melted cheese that is excellent. I also got chicken nuggets that were horrible from a food court in the back of the park. Worse case scenario, there is a McDonalds in the park.

Poutine is great!
Althrough what I would recommend... avoid the one in the park. Very expansive! Instead, go to either "Lafleur" or "La Belle Province" which are everywhere around Montreal. Their fries are all fresh cut and they make the best poutine. Mcdonald's is at street price, so its the cheapest restaurant in the park.
Beaver Tails are good... but the best restaurant in the park, as named by the employees, lol. (there's no employee restaurant, so employees eat in the park) are the 2 asian eateries. There's one next to the entrance and another one in the back of the park. That one has indoor seating.
P.S. The Wild Mouse can only run 4 cars max! Since last summer, they only run 3 cars... *** Edited 6/27/2005 9:58:45 PM UTC by Absimilliard***
