Hi Mango
La Ronde is an amusement park in Montreal, Quebec. It is the largest in Quebec and receives about 1.2 million visitors per year. The park is under an emphyteutic lease with the City of Montreal, which expires in 2065. It is on 146 acres (59.1 ha) located on the eastern tip of Saint Helen's Island. The park hosts L’International des Feux Loto-Québec, a highly regarded international fireworks competition. LaRonde was originally constructed as part of Expo67, the immensely successful Montreal World's Fair held in the summer of 1967. When the Expo site reopened in the summer of 1968 as Terre des Hommes, or Man and his World, La Ronde became a permanent amusement park. It continued to be a summertime attraction even after Terre des Hommes closed permanently in 1981. La Ronde was owned and administered by the City of Montreal until it was sold to Six Flags, an American theme park chain, in a deal completed on May 4, 2001. It acquired all of the assets of the park for $20 million USD and have a long-term contract to lease the land from the city. Before the announcement of the Six Flags purchase, the city had considered offers from other bidders including Paramount Parks, Cedar Fair, and Parc Astérix. Since then Six Flags has invested around $90 million in new rides and improvements, such as Le Vampire, Splash, Le Goliath and Ednör - L'Attaque as well as a new main entrance.La Ronde has a Nintendo-sponsored video game centre with the latest Nintendo video games and attractions. Since 2009, the former 3D theatre housed Nintendo DS and Wii consoles, advertisements and a Nintendo Store. In May 2002, La Ronde announced the installation of a Bolliger & Mabillard inverted roller coaster called Le Vampire, hich was the first major investment by Six Flags. It is a clone of the "Batman - The Ride" roller coasters found at many other Six Flags parks. In May 2006, La Ronde opened its ninth roller coaster, The Goliath, a 53-metre (174 ft) high Bolliger & Mabillard mega coaster. It reaches speeds of 110 km/h (68 mph), making it the third tallest and the third fastest roller coaster in Canada.Also in 2007, La Ronde celebrated its 40th anniversary.
