La Ronde Fright Fest – 30-Hour Coffin Challenge
La Ronde Fright Fest – La Ronde, the Thrill Capital of Québec leaves no tombstone unturned to deliver what guests want most…an all-out terrifying experience. This year, the lineup for the Fright Fest® presented by Chevrolet, is scarier than ever before with NEW haunt attractions. The ALL- NEW Evil Circus 3D, The Trap of Terror, The Roaming Souls and The Firecrackers promise to deliver spine-chilling scares that can only be experienced during the 9 days of Fright Fest. In addition, La Ronde is looking for six daring people to take part in the 30 hour Coffin Challenge.
The Evil Circus 3D is one of the newest and most terrifying experiences offered at Fright Fest this year. It may look like a playful circus but inside the glowing hallways, the carnival games have turned terribly twisted. Equipped with 3D glasses, visitors will encounter nearly 12 sinister clowns with creepy smirks and evil mind tricks. To make your journey even more disorienting, the terror comes to life with eye-popping 3D visuals and demented illusions.
Other scary attractions to discover at the Festival include the The Trap of Terror. This new scare zone will plunge visitors into a dark, smoky and gloomy place where they will find themselves surrounded by a group of threatening masked thugs.
At dusk, La Ronde will turn into a real cemetery with several creatures emerging from the darkness, including newcomers: Roaming Souls and Firecrackers. Every night at 5:30 pm these frightening characters will invade the park accompanied by their accomplices, the zombies, the vampires, the famous Chainsaw Guys and other evil characters, in search of their next prey.
For Thrills by Day, kids and families can enjoy the fun of Fright Fest during our daytime celebration and experience the park’s Halloween themed shows: Monsters Moches and les Citrouilles. Throughout the daylight hours, kids will be safest in Pays de Rimbambelle, where there are a dozen pint-sized attractions designed just for them and not a fright in sight. Be warned, after 5:30 p.m., all HELL breaks loose and the park will become more terrifying than ever. Thus, our evening celebration is not recommended for children 12 years and under.
