MONTREAL, Feb. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - \"La Ronde\" has never been as thrilling
as it will be next summer. Seven new rides are being added to Quebec\'s number
one theme park. New \"La Ronde\", new sensations...
    Six Flags has announced today it is pursuing its major investment program
in Montreal. \"This winter alone\", said Len Turtora, Vice-President and General
Manager, \"Six Flags is investing more than 15 million dollars in the Montreal
landmark. We are reinforcing \"La Ronde\" as the most popular tourist attraction
in Quebec\".
    Since \"La Ronde\'s\" initial season in 1967, there has never been so many
new rides to discover in one season!

    A NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE
    The new rides include a North American premiere. Indeed, the spectacular
MANITOU will be the first thrill ride of its type in North America. Hanging
from a giant 24 passenger six-sided circular gondola, riders will experience
rapid fire spinning while swinging back and forth from a central axis as part
of a breathtaking new ride sensation. The MANITOU will also display a very
unique and impressive Aboriginal design. For the Algonquians, the Manitou is a
supernatural power that permeates the world.
    Another ride for those who like their sensations strong, the VERTIGO,
will swoop guests to heights of 60 feet in a continuous looping motion. The
unique face to face seating arrangement of this new ride will allow guests to
see the excitement...in the faces of their friends as they circle upside down
with feet dangling below on this thrilling new attraction.
    \"\'La Ronde\' has always been and will remain a family destination and the
new rides have been planned that way\", said Mr. Turtora. Altitude being a
favourite among visitors of all ages, the whole family will love to take to
the sky on the new flying carousel swing, TOUR DE VILLE. Up to 48 riders at a
time will enjoy the wonderment and fantasy of this classic family attraction.
\"Staying embedded into the fibre of Montreal, \'La Ronde\'s\' TOUR DE VILLE is
being custom-designed in an old Montreal theme\", mentioned Mr. Turtora.
    Another attraction designed for the whole family, TASSES MAGIQUES
(Magical Tea Cups) will be based on the all time classic interactive ride. It
will consist of 12 giant rotating cups. Each cup will accommodate up to five
riders. The double motion of the platform combined with rider-controlled
spinning of the tea cups will all add up to perhaps the greatest family ride
of them all.
    \"La Ronde\" is also adding another roller coaster - a theme park favourite
- to the many it already operates. The TOBOGGAN NORDIQUE will be the perfect
ride for the whole family. The TOBOGGAN NORDIQUE\'S individual four passenger
cars will go through a course full of hairpin turns and moderate drops.
Perfect for the not so daring thrill seeker.
    Another popular family attraction is the AUTOS TAMPONNEUSES (bumper cars)
ride. It will be all new in 2003 featuring the latest innovation in bumper car
design. As well, \"La Ronde\" will inaugurate a brand new GRAND CAROUSEL,
unquestionably the most traditional and... romantic of all rides.

    \"LA RONDE\" BECOMING A WORLD CLASS ATTRACTION
    In addition to these seven thrilling new rides, numerous improvements and
renovations will be made to the infrastructure such as landscaping, design,
decor, sanitary installations and other guest comforts across the site. These
changes will definitely add to the pleasure and comfort of our guests in 2003.
    \"Owner of \'La Ronde\' since 2001, Six Flags undertook last year a major
development program,\" recalled Mr Turtora. \"This investment program is the
largest and the most ambitious in \'La Ronde\'s\' history. At Six Flags, we see
\'La Ronde\' as an exceptional asset, mainly due to its unique venue in our
beautiful city of Montreal.\"
    \"Last year, major site improvements and infrastructure investments
initiated our five year investment program. It brought to Montreal a new
generation of thrill rides at the vanguard of technology. We have met with
incredible success: all summer long, \"The Vampire\" has attracted masses of
jolly visitors and has been the star attraction.\"
    At the end of Six Flags\' 5-year $90 M investment program, \"La Ronde\" will
have become a world class attraction. Six Flags announced plans aimed at
turning \"La Ronde\" into one of its flagship parks, while preserving its
specific nature, which was inherited from Man and His World.

    Six Flags, Inc. is the world\'s largest regional theme park company with a
    total of 39 parks in America, Europe and Latin America. Six Flags parks
    serve 35 of the 50 largest metropolitan areas in the United States. Six
    Flags is a publicly held corporation with corporate offices in New York
    City and Oklahoma City. The Company\'s stock trades on the NYSE under the
    symbol: PKS.

Hier soir, sur le chat Ameworld, on se posait la question \"A quoi ressemble le Vertigo\", une des 7 nouveautés de La Ronde...

En cherchant sur Screamscape, il s\'agirait d\'un Hawk Zamperla 24.
