Get a jump on summer fun
At La Ronde, the featured new ride scheduled to open later this season will be the Aqua Twist, a water ride featuring boats for six passengers, each of whom gets a water pistol, so there’ll be lots of opportunities to get soaked. It’s a family-themed ride and will have a 36-inch height minimum.
La Ronde will open for weekends beginning on the holiday weekend, Saturday, May 18, 2013.
Starting in early June it will gradually increase the number of days and hours it operates.
