Previously carried out an annual ritual of worshipping Lord Shiva as gratitude for a good harvest of rice. And during a brahmin ceremony at the end of December, beginning of January, 10 days used these swings.
According to Hindu mythology, to check the stability of the newly created world, God Brahma was ordered to melt Shiva on the top of the hill on which the snake will crawl and they can push Shiva to the bottom. According to legend, the giant swing is like Lord Shiva firmly standing on his feet. With great force, a team of brave men, chosen from the faithful, was swinging on that swing.

Ride to shout
The oldest “roller coaster” in the Park of Montreal – the famous “Monster” (Le Monstre), the track with wooden rails with a height of about 40 meters.

One of the Park’s adrenaline slides – “Vampire”. Her people do not go, but rather fly – the passengers are located on the outboard seats (like those used in ski lifts), dangling his legs in the air. The speed is very decent up to 80 km/h. It has a length of 823 meters, periodically lifting and dropping with a 32-metre slopes. In fact, “Vampire” resembles the American attraction “Batman”.
