Vol Ultime concept art

La Ronde has revealed that it will become the latest Six Flags park to open a version of the SkyScreamer spinning tower ride in 2012, with the debut of Vol Ultime.

The new ride at the Montreal-based park will be smaller than many other installations, standing at 45 metres (148 feet) tall. As with other versions of SkyScreamer, it will see guests swinging in circles around a central tower, in a vertigo-inducing variation on the classic "Chair-O-Plane" ride. Vol Ultime is expected to debut in May 2012.

Up to 32 passengers will be able to experience Vol Ultime (which translates to "Ultimate Flight") at a time, reaching a top speed of 37 miles per hour. The ride will offers view over La Ronde and the surrounding area, with riders able to sit in pairs in its 16 twin seats.

La Ronde's latest addition will be situated beside Disco Ronde, behind the existing Vertigo ride. La Ronde is offering a special preview of the ride on its official Facebook page, in the form of a 3D simulator that allows guests to a virtual spin on Vol Ultimate.
