MONTREAL, Oct. 3, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Starting this weekend, a ghoulish
atmosphere of bloodcurdling terror descends once again upon La Ronde
for Fright Fest, as the park celebrates Halloween for the 12th year in
a row. During the day, the young and young-at-heart are invited to take
part in numerous family activities, including the all-new Candy
Kingdom. Starting at noon, the bravest souls can experience one of four
haunted houses including the brand-new Dollhouse. When the clock
strikes 5 p.m., the park transforms from "thrills by day" to "fright by
night," becoming a nightmarish landscape where monsters and ghastly
attractions such as the new Zombie Lounge will terrify even the bravest
New attractions that will horrify you!
Over the next few weeks, La Ronde becomes a real "scream park," courtesy
of these frighteningly fun attractions:
The new haunted Dollhouse: With those perfect eyes, impassive faces and features that are almost
too pure… Welcome to the Dollhouse, where all who enter will shriek in
The Zombie Lounge: Visitors to the park should make sure to stay far away from the Zombie
Lounge, where frenzied music blares from the DJ booth and hypnotic
lights flash across the dance floor. Many unlucky souls that have dared
to venture into the lounge have simply disappeared without a trace.
The Candy Kingdom: Enter the Candy Kingdom, a colourful and magical place where the royal
couple and their court jester will welcome you with the sweetest
Evil monsters, futuristic demons and other sinister characters
Prepare for the unexpected scare! While walking through the park,
visitors will encounter horrible creatures whose only purpose in life
(or death!) is to spread terror.
District 510: Dare to enter where most humans have to be dragged in. Battle with mad
scientists desperate to push the limits of the unknown by conducting
experiments on humans.
The Vampire's Lair: The Vampire's Lair has its name for a very good reason. This is a place
unlike any other in Montreal, permanently shrouded in darkness. Nothing
stops the undead from wandering around the park as they see fit.
Death Row: Enjoy a secret night time tour of "Death Row," the most wicked prison
in Montreal, from which no one has ever escaped alive.
Massacre Museum: It is believed that this abandoned warehouse, dubbed Massacre Museum,
draws in anyone who gets too close, dragging them through a
disorienting world of terror and then sucking the very life out of
them. Visitors who dare to set foot in this grim and mysterious
building do so at their own risk, because there's no telling what might
The Demons: Once night has fallen, six mysterious demons are released into the
park, with the sole purpose of scaring you to death. But watch out:
There is no escape, no matter where you go in the park…
Fun for the whole family
