Now that it’s open, this is the tallest, fastest and longest dive coaster in the world.

“The ride on Yukon Striker is absolutely breathtaking,” said Norm Pirtovshek, general manager of Canada’s Wonderland. “Yukon Striker’s 3,625 feet of steel track soars through four dynamic inversions above guests in the newly themed area, Frontier Canada. At its summit, you’ll experience three seconds of complete exhilaration as you stare directly down 245 feet at 90 degrees into an underwater tunnel.”

Yukon Striker, now part of a new land themed to the Klondike Gold Rush, can claim several world records, including: 

  • The fastest dive coaster at 80 miles per hour
  • The longest dive coaster at 3,625 feet
  • The tallest dive coaster at 245 feet, including going underground

The coaster also features floorless trains and the only 360-degree loop on any dive coaster in the world.
