La Ronde, Quebec’s leading destination for thrills and family entertainment, will introduce Chaos, a new giant loop roller coaster. Chaos offers a pure adrenaline rush as riders go forward, backward and upside down for unprecedented hang-time. This exhilarating, seven-story loop sends riders through a series of multiple, adrenaline-charged revolutions, higher and higher before changing directions for even more chaotic thrills.

Well better than a tilt-a-whirl! I wonder if they’ll be able to maintain their ride promise this year.

I mean I think we all lost whatever little faith we had in new rides for this park after they announced a somewhat decent carnival ride package and then only opened a single sad tilt-a-whirl :lmao:

Meh - I much prefer tilt-a-whirl's myself.

This announcement was one of those "I kinda expected this" sort of announcements for La Ronde.

Serious question: Does anyone think that they will eventually RMC Le Monstre or is this park too far gone? :lol:

I thought Six Flag parks were done with these kinds of coasters <coughLarsonLoopcough>?

Obviously not.

I was surprised when I saw the announcement because I thought La Ronde already had a super loop lol!

I was expecting this announcement too. So as of 2019, the only Six Flags parks without super loops are Magic Mountain and Mexico - and that's even including Frontier City and Darien Lake.

Watch for those 2020 announcements next year... lol. They have to finish what they started!

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

Is it safe to assume the worst for visiting LaRonde on Thanksgiving? Or is it surprisingly not busy? Wanted to hit up the park while I have a Six Flags pass this year and getting there on a Monday is easier to make happen than a Friday or Sunday.
