Photo TR: La Ronde, Mega Parc & Upper Clements

Postby Coastinmiller » Tue Sep 04, 2007 3:09 pm

After another successful Adirondack Open Shufflebaord tournament, I departed for an Eastern Canadian Amusement park tour, by myself. La Ronde, Mega Parc and Upper Clements were the parks of choice. Crystal Palace and Sandspit were thrown out due to time constraints :cry:

La Ronde (Sunday 9/2) good thing I got here early, b/c it got slammed. Goliath was good, but I thouhgt it had a wicked shimmy. Anyone else notice this?? Had some good air. Got in 2 decent rides, before hitting the road again for the 3 hr ride to Quebec City for Mega Parc.

Mega Parc (Sunday 9/3) Nice small indoor amusement park in the mall.
Capital Express was a decent family coaster with a long tunnel as a first drop. Didn't stay very long esp with the long drive ahead.

Upper Clements (Monday 9/4) After a greuling 12 hr drive from Quebec City to Digby, NS, I manage to hit the park a little after opening. What a plesant small park. Complete with an animal park next to it. Tree Topper was a decent wood coaster with some great pops of air time, but a little rough.

Now for the pics.

I didn't have time to skate at mega.

You know it's funny you replied to this post as I was thinking of you and your Canobie as I was passing it today in all the fraking rush hour traffic all the way down 495 to 290 west.

As fun as Goliath looks, it seems to have extremely boring elements. Bunny hills and a turnaround. That's it?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^that's it, but aren't most out-and-back coasters like that?

Nice tr and photos, and it was nice to see two of Canada's relatively unknown parks. Upper Clements looks like a nice little park, and it looks like a park that any town could benefit from. While a small park,(well not for the area it is in) there seems to be enough to do to spend a few hours having fun.

I'm so glad you posted pictures of Tree Topper at Upper Clements! I rode it when I was 10 or 11 and couldn't remember anything about it. All I remember was everything in the park was spaced far apart and there was a lot of walking..kind of like at Marineland. I've been trying to find pictures of Tree Topper for a while, but only found two on rcdb. Thanks for posting this!

No that's all I have, there really isn't too much to it.

Didn't anyone else notice the bad shimmy on Goliath though???
