More than a century-old slide, a unique attraction in Quebec City. This impressive
structure, which has become familiar to residents of Quebec, appeared on the Dufferin
Terrace in 1884. A few years later, the iconic Château Frontenac, most photographed hotel
in the world, was erected next to the slide, projecting shade on what we believe is the oldest attraction in town. It was then closed in 1981, but then again regained its appeal in December 1992 and has been operated since then.
The slide will undoubtely make you feel emotions as you get to speed up to 70 km / hour
down the hill. As long as Mother Nature cooperates, the three aisles of ice will be available from mid-December until mid-March or even later, if weather permits. With up to four passengers per toboggan, be sure to hold on tight to your hats, down you go!
Combine a thrilling trip down the slide with a delicious hot chocolate
Enjoy the trilling trip down the slide with your family or friends!

Dufferin Terrace was first built in 1879 at the initiative of the Governor General of Canada, Frederick Temple Blackwood also known as Lord Dufferin.Concerned about the preservation of the cultural heritage of beautiful Quebec City, Dufferin shows desire to emphasize the natural beauty of this site. This leads to the extension of the Durham terrace, which stretched to the very corner of the actual Chateau Frontenac. Dufferin was the one to lay the foundation stone of the extended terrace at that time.
Wonderfully rich in culture and history, Dufferin Terrace remains an extremely popular site for visitors to enjoy live entertainment and a unique viewpoint onto the magnificient St. Lawrence River. Overlooked by the iconic Chateau Frontenac, this boardwalk will treasure a buried archaeological crypt that reveals the remains of four defensive forts and two castles named Saint Louis, than Haldimand. For more than 200 years under French rule and the British regime, these remains were the official residence and seat of power of the French and British governors. Now a symbol of the city of Quebec beyond the seas, Dufferin Terrace annually hosts nearly 2.5 million visitors.
