  • On April 24th 2019, Canada’s Wonderland revealed their new roller coaster for the

  • 2019 season and we were at the park to check it out.

  • Yukon Striker, the B&M dive coaster is the newest ride at Canada’s Wonderland.

  • Its the park’s 17th roller coaster which ties Canada’s Wonderland with Cedar Point

  • in 2nd place for the park with the most coasters.

  • So this is Yukon Striker, our world record breaking dive roller coaster.

  • Longest Tallest Fastest dive roller coaster in the world.

  • We had our first riders on today, its been a great day!

  • That’s right, Yukon Striker is a record setting coaster that holds three titles!

  • With it’s 3635 feet of coaster track and a ride time of just over 2 minutes, it’s

  • the longest but also the tallest dive coaster in the world.

  • As the train ascends up the lift hill and makes that right turn that takes you to the

  • edge, it stops there for 3 seconds leaving you hanging.

  • Youll then plunge down the 245 foot drop at a 90 degree angle which takes you into

  • this underground tunnel.

  • And with the 245 foot drop comes some pretty intense speeds.

  • Yukon Striker reaches a top speed of 80 miles or 130 km per hour making it the fastest dive

  • coaster in the world.

  • Now in terms of inversions you can expect to go upside down a total of 4 times on Yukon

  • Striker.

  • This includes a zero g roll which leads into a vertical loop making this only dive coaster

  • with a 360 degree loop.

  • It also acts as a little tribute to Skyrider the old coaster that used to sit on this plot

  • of land.

  • Now Yukon Striker is the new ride but it’s also part of a newly themed land for 2019.

  • It’s been a long time in planning but were finally here, were proud to say.

  • Canada’s Wonderland welcomes Frontier Canada for the 2019 season and Yukon Striker is the

  • star.

  • Well we started planning with sketches back in 2014.

  • It’s our show piece attraction in Frontier Canada.

  • This is our newly themed attraction area and it’s all having to do with the Klondike

  • gold rush in western Canada.

  • When Canada’s Wonderland first opened in 1981, The Great Canadian Minebuster was built

  • with the intention of headlining Frontier Canada but sometimes things just don’t work

  • out.

  • Those plans were shelved after the park was opened.

  • Where the land- where the area for Frontier Canada was supposed to be we ended up doing

  • a water park instead.

  • Fast forward 38 years and the idea of Frontier Canada has finally become a reality with an

  • amazing record setting dive coaster.

  • B&M is known for manufacturing smooth coasters and Yukon Striker is no different.

  • It’s an extremely smooth and exhilarating coaster that youll be able to experience

  • for yourself once the park opens to the public on May 3rd.

  • So sit back enjoy some on and off ride footage of the entire circuit of Yukon Striker at

  • Canada’s Wonderland.
