Thrill-seekers Will Soar High Above the Park
MONTREAL, Sept. 1, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - La Ronde, Quebec's leading destination for thrills and family entertainment, will add Titan, a new ride of gigantic proportion to its outstanding roster of roller coasters and other thrill rides and attractions.
Titan will send riders on a swinging, dizzying adventure atop a giant swaying pendulum. Inspired by the legend of the Titans, those divine beings of the Greek Mythology synonymous with total domination, Titan will propel riders into a spinning tour over the park, sending them higher and higher in the air until they experience a feeling of weightlessness.
Among Titan's highlights:
- Seating for 40 riders;
- Speeds of more than 112 km/h; and
- Towering nearly 45 metres in the air.
"We are very excited with the addition of Titan to La Ronde's lineup of rides and attractions. This new thrill ride contributes to a wider offering for families and thrill-seekers in 2017," said Phil Liggett, President of La Ronde.
