Montreal's La Ronde Is Hosting A Horror Festival & Nowhere In The Park Is Off Limits

Fright Fest is back in a big way.
La Ronde Montreal

To some, La Ronde is already scary enough. Like two weeks ago when a passenger safety harness detached on a roller coaster. Or a month ago when a Ferris Wheel car flipped over while a film crew was working. But if you like your scare with a side of the supernatural, then La Ronde also has you covered through the month of October. 

On select days from October 5 – 27, after the sun goes down, La Ronde will be overrun by every sort of nightmarish monster you could dream up.  

During Fright Fest, La Ronde is transformed into a giant terrifying amusement park complete with scare zones, haunted houses, and rides. Live actors dressed as sometimes horrifying characters are let loose on the grounds, ready to jump out at you at any given time; upping the overall creepy ante.  

As you walk the grounds, there is also a zombie camp, vampire lair, and the ominous "Trap of Terror" that will keep your adrenaline flowing between rides. There will be Jason-esque masked men with chainsaws, death reapers, and lost and angry souls intent on making you scream. 

And there is nowhere to hide.

Due to the scare factor, children 12 years old and under are discouraged from attending. 

There are two haunted mazes this year. In District 510 you will be enveloped in darkness and forced to make your way through the mad scientist warehouse where you will cross "dark creatures, distorted and thirsty for human flesh." Only one of your group will be armed with a small flashlight.

La Ronde is also unveiling their latest horror masterpiece, the  Evil Circus 3D. Get up close and personal with clowns that would make Stephen King say, "Hey man, that's just too far."  Users will wear 3D glasses through the funhouse, so it should be interesting to see what they have come up with.

La Ronde is also releasing a secret one-night horror extravaganza, Bal De La Frayeur on November 1, when the grounds will transform into a cemetery. So far they are being tight-lipped about the new attraction. 

And all of this is in between the usual scares of stomach-dropping rides and lineups.  

You can buy tickets on La Ronde's website. Some of the Fright Fest attractions require you to buy a separate wristband, so the usual one-day pass may not suffice. And you really don't want to miss out on all the creepy events. 

La Ronde Fright Fest

When: October 5 – 27; from 6 p.m.
