I drove past La Ronde yesterday, checking out the virtually-complete Goliath. It looks really impressive, especially viewed from the Jacques Cartier Bridge crossing back into Montreal. (Sorry, I didn't stop the car and take a picture. If you've driven there, you know why.)
La Ronde updated it's construction gallery on Monday. (http://laronde.com/en/virtuel/album.asp?album=7) The trains have arrived and work on the station façade is underway.
I also thought that the park looks more clean and colourful than last year. La Ronde may have even repainted the tracks for Vampire and Cobra. Can anyone verify this?

I saw the park from the air last month. At that point it was really white with the track about half in. Looks like things are progressing rapidly. Hopefully it will be ready to go when I'm there again next month.
Good idea not taking pictures while driving in Montreal, or even other cities.
