Back to school season is in it's prime, meaning a lot of people in the city are feeling pretty down right about now. The high peak of the summer is officially behind us, and the following weeks are more or less committed to planning for the upcoming school and work year.
If only we could have just one more chance to enjoy the last fleeting days of summer, right? Just an activity that'll close off the season in the most perfect way. Well, it's time to get acquainted with the mountain roller coaster just outside of the city that you need to go to right now.
A regular roller coaster loops and speeds high above the ground, lasting about a minute or two before you're brought back to the boarding area. That's not the case with this ride, which is known as the Viking. High above the slope of a huge mountain, you're rushed down a high speed track and surprised by sudden drops and unreal turns. This is a one of a kind experience in Quebec that'll have you begging for more!
Not a major dare devil? Not a problem. The Viking is equipped with a brake system that lets you control your own speed, so you have the opportunity to take it easy or basically be flying off the tracks. The entire experience is up to your choosing.
The hybrid coaster is located at Saint-Sauveur, an incredible amusement park just an hour outside of Montreal. The ride lasts about 6 minutes, which is an amazing amount of time the consists of gorgeous mountain views and zooming through the dense forest.
One ride on the crazy coaster is only $13, so it's easy to convince yourself to go ASAP and get yourself a ticket.
And, when the leaves start to turn, it's the perfect way to view some foliage! Just imagine the bright colours of fall swirling around you.
