Looking for the next thrill ride?
Canada is set to take the title for the most insane roller coaster in the world. According to Global News, a new super roller coaster called the “Yukon Striker" has been built and is almost ready to open at Canada's Wonderland park. It will be the fastest, longest, and tallest dive roller coaster in the world. The Yukon Striker will be included in a new area of the park dubbed “Frontier Canada." It will be Canada's first dive coaster and Wonderland’s 17th coaster.
Norm Pirtovshek, Wonderland’s General Manager, released a statement saying, “This is the largest capital investment we’ve made in our park since opening. We’re excited to offer world-class thrills and a truly unique experience for our guests next year.” As for the new "Frontier Canada" section of the park, Pirtovshek stated, “The area will represent the rugged Yukon backcountry during the Klondike Gold Rush era of the late 1880s."
Wonderland is set to debut a new "Winterfest" event next year as well. Scheduled during the November and December holiday season, Winterfest will feature an “enchanted winter wonderland, complete with uniquely themed areas, dozens of Christmas trees, millions of spectacular lights, ice-skating, live entertainment, savoury treats, crafts and hands-on family activities.”
