La Ronde is the largest theme park in the province of Quebec and the second largest in Canada after Canada's Wonderland, with about 2.5 million entrances in 2006.
It is a 146 acre (591,000 m²) park located on Saint Helen's Island in Montreal, Canada. It lies on the former site of the 1967 Montreal World's Fair. The park hosts L’International des Feux Loto-Québec, possibly the most important international fireworks competition in the world.
La Ronde was opened in 1967 as a part of Expo 67 and now features 39 rides, including 9 roller coasters. Among them includes Le Monstre, a 40 metre (131 ft) high wooden double-tracked roller coaster which currently holds the record for highest double-tracked roller coaster in the world.
In May 2006, La Ronde opened its 9th roller coaster, The Goliath, a 53-metre (175 ft) high Bolliger & Mabillard Mega Coaster. It reaches speeds of 110 km/h (68 mph), making it the tallest and the fastest roller coaster in Canada.
