|About these ratings|
This beloved amusement park on Ile Sainte-Hélène — originally constructed for the 1967 International and Universal Exposition (Expo 67) and now a Six Flags facility — is the largest in Quebec and a great way to spend a day if you are traveling as a family. From stomach-churning roller-coasters to the toddler-friendly Le Galopant carousel, La Ronde has something for visitors of all ages. It's also worth a return visit, as new attractions are constantly being built. Plus the park plays host to numerous special events, one of the most popular being l'International des Feux d'Artifice (International Fireworks), a bi-weekly event held throughout the summer during which representatives from different countries compete in a fireworks competition.
Accessible from the Yellow Line's Jean-Drapeau métro station, the park is open during the summer from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday; a detailed schedule is available on La Ronde's website. Admission is pretty pricey: Adults will have to pay around $59 CAD (approximately $53 USD) while children and seniors will be charged $43 CAD ($39 USD), and entry to special events requires a separate fee.
