Le Monstre (The Monster in English) is La Ronde's only wooden roller coaster. This roller coaster is the highest twin wooden coaster in the world. The first track was built in 1985 and the second in 1986.

History[edit]

In 1998, Normand St Pierre attempted to break the record for the longest time continuously riding a roller coaster on the Monstre while Richard Rodriguez attempted to break the same record on Big Dipper at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. However St Pierre gave up, allowing Rodriguez to claim the record.[1]
