Listen up thrill-seekers, because exciting news is coming your way! You may have been on every rollercoaster at Canada's Wonderland, but you've never been on a ride like this. The Quebec Vipère rollercoaster is opening next year, and it's Canada's most jawdropping new ride. Hold onto your hats, because this will turn your world upside-down, literally!
The ride will be Canada's first-ever free-fly rollercoaster and will bring guests a crazy experience like no other. Opening at the popular amusement park La Ronde in Montreal in 2020, this exciting new thrill is definitely a must-try.
You'll soar to heart-pounding new heights on this unique structure that takes you beyond the restrictions of a usual track. The twisting frame features winged carts where you can sit before travelling up a towering 107-foot lift. Get ready for the ride of your life, because once at the top, you'll suddenly be released into an adventure of free-falls, 360-degree spins, and a rippling track.
Some of the most notable excitements of the Vipère are the vertical drops and insane full spins. The best part is, once you finish the ride, you can right back on again for a totally different experience! Each winged vehicle spins on its own, making every ride unique.
Vipère is set to open in the spring of 2020, so start preparing your best screams. This will certainly be an unforgettable experience, and you may want to save the amusement park treats until after you get off.

To limit gatherings during Christmas time, would be the best gift we could give ourselves.
Dr. Vincent Bouchard-Dechêne
This is a result of emergency rooms seeing a high number of hospital visits and being at full capacity.
In fact, health facilities in many areas are putting in more work than they are cut out to do. This includes Montreal, Laval, Quebec City, the Laurentians and the Lanaudière who are among the 30% of hospitals working over their limits, per the report.
Dr. François Marquis, from Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital, said that his facility is bearing the brunt of overflowing patients suffering from COVID-19 and his emergency room is feeling the heat.
"The answer is simple: nothing at Christmas, we see no one," Marquis said.
And he's not alone in his sentiments.
"To limit gatherings during Christmas time, would be the best gift we could give ourselves," a doctor at Notre-Dâme Hospital, Vincent Bouchard-Dechêne agreed.
As it stands today, Quebec has gotten the green light to gather from Dec. 24 to Dec. 27, with a maximum of 10 people allowed together at once.
The premier is expected to make the final decision on gatherings on December 11.
