Vipère is the New Vertical Track, Free Spinning Coaster
MONTREAL, Aug. 29, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - La Ronde, Quebec's leading destination for thrills and family entertainment, will introduce the country's first ever free-fly coaster, Vipère, for the 2020 season. Vipère takes coaster riding to the next level, sending riders on a tumbling journey with unexpected drops, vertical free-falls and gravity-defying somersaults. This thrilling, new ride will give guests the feeling of weightlessness as they soar outside the confines of a traditional track.
"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."
Vipère features a massive serpentine track frame in which winged vehicles begin their journey by traveling up a vertical 107-foot elevator-type lift before being released on an exhilarating course that includes undulating track, multiple free falls and 360-degree head-over-heels flips.
Vipère highlights 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; and
- 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 https://www.sixflags.com/larondeen/newfor2020.
