As seen in the newspaper ( in Montreal ) this morning, Pierre Bourque ( Montreal mayor ) confirmed that La Ronde is indeed on sale and 5 serious companies are interested...... Let's see the 5 possibilities...

1- Premier Parks

2- Cedar Fair

3- Alfa Alfa ( the company that bought Ogden )

4- Universal ( not a huge possibility, but Seagram is based in Montreal, so... )

5- A mysterious company not related ( for now ) to amusement parks

Any throughts on the buyer?

I have a feeling La Ronde will turn into Six Flags Canada next year. Which will most likly mean that a lot of the parks French Canadian charm will be drained. -Wendigo
