La Ronde unveiling four new rides in 2016 and big discounts on season passes

La Ronde is shifting things into higher gear this season by offering Canada’s first virtual reality roller coaster experience, a new feature of the park’s signature ride, the Goliath. 

Free with park admission, riders will have the option to be fully immersed in a virtual riding experience by wearing wireless Samsung Gear VR headsets powered by Oculus.

Your mission will not only to keep down your lunch but also to save Earth from an alien invasion. Riders will buckle in for combat as they get launched into virtual futuristic world, diving off a skyscraper and zooming through the city until coming upon a mother ship protected by drones that you must infiltrate and destroy from within. 

The souped-up roller coaster is one of four additions to the park this upcoming season. For a limited time, fans of the Vampire will have a chance to experience the ride in a different way, literally. The seats will be flipped and the ride will run in reverse, offering a new rush on a park classic. 

In addition, Adventure Avenue will make its debut, an area of the park that will introduce two new rides: the Phoenix, a two-passenger, interactive flying scooter ride, as well as Gravitor, a suspended gondola that lifts riders high while rotating them 360 degrees. 

Opening day is May 21
