Canada's first ever free-fly roller coaster is coming to La Ronde next year

Aug 29 2019, 6:20 am

La Ronde is going to be adding more flips, flops, drops, turns, spins, and screams next summer as Quebec’s biggest amusement park will become the destination for Canada’s first ever free-fly roller coaster.

The Vipère will be sending riders on a tumbling journey with unexpected vertical free-falls and gravity-defying somersaults.

The jolting ride will give guests the “feeling of weightlessness as they soar outside the confines of a traditional track.”

How’s your stomach feeling, so far?

Vipère will feature a giant serpentine track frame where winged vehicles will ascend up a vertical 107-foot elevator-type lift before being released on an exhilarating course that includes multiple free falls and 360-degree head-over-heels flips.

“La Ronde is committed to offering our guests unique and innovative experiences every year,” said Park President Janine Durette. “The state-of-the-art configuration of Vipère is unlike any other ride in Canada and the experience of being suspended outward on either side of the track is the kind of extreme thrill only a Six Flags brand like La Ronde could deliver.”

Along with another reason to tell your friends, “I’ll skip this one,” the Vipère will include:

  • Four winged vehicles that extend outside of the track; each vehicle seats 8 riders sitting four abreast and back-to-back.
  • 360-degree head-over-heel spins providing guests the feeling of weightlessness.
  • Each vehicle free spins on its own, giving riders a different ride experience each time.

Vipère is scheduled to open in late spring of 2020. For more information on Vipère and next season at La Ronde, visit the Six Flags website.
