Méga Parc opens with first spokeless Ferris Wheel in North America
After more than a year of major construction, the new Méga Parc at Galeries de la Capitale in Québec, Canada is ready to open its doors to guests.
This new park is the largest indoor amusement park in Québec and the second-largest nationwide.
Méga Parc offers 18 rides and experiences, including 14 new attractions and four restored rides: the Force G, the Condor, the Carrousel, and the Électro roller coaster. The most exciting of all of these is likely the Zénith, the first spokeless Ferris Wheel in North America.
“The Méga Parc offers an unbeatable and unique experience you won’t find anywhere else in Canada,” said Stéphan Landry, general manager of the shopping mall. “Locals are going to love this new entertainment offering, but it will also be a big draw for tourists and people visiting the Québec City area, especially since it’s an indoor activity families can enjoy all year round.”
Méga Parc’s atmosphere is inspired by the Industrial Age and Steampunk culture. In addition to all of its attractions, the park also features the Patinarium, a 750-foot ice skating circuit that runs through the park – and is the longest indoor skating trail in Canada!
Thrill seekers will want to check out the Télégraphe, a 40-foot-high suspended glider coaster that travels through the spokeless Ferris Wheel. Other attractions that will get your adrenaline running include the Arsenal, the Piston, the Centrale, the Hélix, the Express, the Convoyeur, the Pare-chocs, and the Mini-mousse amusement park for younger guests.
The park is also equipped with high-tech elements like state-of-the-art lighting and sound, a giant screen, a stage for shows, and a water fountain that puts on a dazzling display of water and light. Méga Parc also has three rooms that can be used for children’s parties and private events. Interested parties can even rent out the entire park for corporate events.
Méga Parc is now open Monday-Wednesday from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m., Thursday-Friday from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. In the summertime, the park will remain open until 9 p.m. on Saturdays.
