La Ronde is located on a group of islands in the middle of the St Lawrence River. Many of the pavillions at the 1967 World Exposition (one of the most memorable and successful ever) were here, and the site has been preserved and developed.
La Ronde holds many festivals and cultural events and has a large amusement park with some thrilling rides. On the islands there are also several museums, restaurants and the Montréal Casino.
With the aptly named hypercoaster Goliath and the suspended coaster Vampire leading the way, La Ronde has enough thrills to satiate even the most ardent coaster crusaders.
The kid-friendly Pays de Ribambelle offers gentler fare for the young at heart and small in stature, while the elevated Minirail allows you to plan your day from on high with a leisurely ride around the park.
