In 2006 the park's signature coaster was added called Goliath a B&M hyper coaster. The La Ronde's cheapest and most attractive restraint is McDonalds which is in the center of the park. La Ronde operates a private marina for access to the park for a rate of $25. In 2012 Vol Ultime a clone of the skyScreamers at Six flags opened. In 2013 La Ronde opened the first Aqua Twist in the Six Flags chain.
