Amusement park rides at parc de la Baie during the FMG!

News releases | July 6, 2021

BEAUCE CARNAVAL IS JOINING THE PARTY!

Gatineau, August 5th, 2021 - The easing of sanitary measures announced by the Quebec government on July 26th, allowing outdoor events to increase their capacity from 5,000 to 15,000 people, has allowed the FMG to add a new activity area in order to better meet the demands of its festival-goers. The FMG is proud to partner with Beauce Carnaval to bring you a thrilling amusement park from September 2nd to 6th, on the outskirts of its show site in Parc de la Baie.

"Just like the shows, fireworks and flights, the rides have been part of the FMG's DNA for decades; festival-goers are very attached to them.  It's not quite a normal edition yet, but thanks to the partnership with Beauce Carnaval, we're happy to be able to offer these moments of fun and thrills to our young and not-so young festival-goers once again," explains Sandra Cloutier, General Manager of the FMG.

In total, 12 to 15 rides will be present, including the Zipper, Fire Ball, Himalaya, Caroussel, the Drop’n’twist and the Cascadeur for the thrill-seeking adventurers, young and old alike. The offer will also include games of skill and fairground food. Access to the rides will be via a separate entrance from the FMG show area; festival-goers will not be able to move freely between the two sites due to the ongoing health measures in effect.

Tickets can only be purchased on site during the ride park's opening hours.
