Newsa about La Ronde

Saturday, October 27, 2001 8:46 AM
Braving the chilly and rainy weather ( 40 degrees ), I went to La Ronde to have a look at how the park has progressed during the off season... To my BIG surprise, 2 things came out:

Cobra: Its got a paint job! Its now has green track and black supports. The running rails remains unpainted. Seeing it just screamed at me... Riddler's Revenge!!!

Rumored B&M: Seems rumored is not the case anymore, its more like "confirmed". During the last weekend of the season, they were busy dismantling the old water park rest rooms and lockers structure ( that weird pyramid shape building near Cobra, the one near Orbite houses Orbite's air compressor ). As of yesterday, the building is totally gone and at its place stands a plowed field, with tons of markers! A truck from a cement pouring company was nearby, so the footers should start pouring on short notice. Also... Supports have arrived! And they are NOT SLC supports. They are B&M supports and their color is a brownish purple.

I'll go back in a month to see what happen.

Thats some very good news. I might just visit this park next year. I really want to try out Cobra and see how it compares to B&M standups. And a new B&M is just icing on the cake.
