When travelling with children it is important to schedule in activities which are fun for them too. Movies, water parks, amusement parks and outdoor activities are always fun for children and for parents too. Montreal has the second largest amusement park in Canada called La Ronde. This amusement park is situated on the eastern tip of Saint Helen's Island and is a trip not to be missed by those travelling with children or for those who simply never want to grow old.
The park is open to visitors from the middle of May until the end of October and not all year round due to winter so be sure to only visit in summer months. The winter cold and the subsequent ice and snow make many of the rides dangerous or simply unpleasant. If you plan to go towards the end of October you will be able to attend the Halloween celebrations at the park called La Ronde's Halloween Fright Fest. It truly is a thrilling festival which includes an impressively scary haunted house with performers dressed up in elaborate costumes scarring people around the park.
For adrenaline junkies you will be happy to know that there are 10 roller coaster within the park and more than 40 rides. La Ronde is also home to one of the highest double-tracked roller coaster in the world! Le Monstre is a 40-metre double-tracked roller coaster and is guaranteed to satisfy even the most ardent thrill seeker. It is not all thrills and spills though. There are rides available for people of all ages and thrill seeking levels.
If you are travelling with small children you will be relieved to know that there are strollers available for rent at the park. In addition, you can rent lockers to keep your belongings in while you enjoy the rides. There are also several ATMs within the grounds of the park, just in case you need cash.

La Ronde is both amazing and not really. For the ticket price it could be better but definitely nothing to complain about. The rides are a nice mix of old/new. However, the park is a little small but should be able to entertain you for a day

Great spot for the summer in Montreal to hangout with friends and family and go on rides. Get there early in the morning to have a chance to ride the all big roller coasters! Also get the refillable soft drinks bottle to stay hydrated during the day when it gets hot, it’s worth it.

This place is just the right size! Excellent small kids area with rides for all ages as you go throughout the park. Food selection signal good, prices are to be expected, staff were friendly and efficient. Beautiful view of the city on the ferris wheel all the way at the back! Loves it and cannot wait to come back. A must visit for all travelers young and old looking for fun.

The rides have gotten better since six flags came in. It still has the same nostalgic feel from when I was a kid, great music, fun rides and the lines aren't that bad. Get the season pass because it's the price of an entry and includes parking. Food can get expensive but it won't break the bank. Halloween time is great because the haunted houses open up! 🎃
