The Story Behind the Yukon Striker
Canada’s Wonderland explains the story behind this magnificent new ride:
It’s 1897 and a flood of men and women are venturing into the untamed wilderness of northwestern Canada, fueled by little more than rumour of limitless gold. The headwaters of the Yukon spread beyond an unforgiving landscape, tempting newcomers with the promise of riches that lay buried in ice-cold riverbeds throughout the Klondike.
Most prospectors are doomed to fail. The journey is treacherous along the Chilkoot Trail, a steep and punishing climb high into the coastal mountain range. The seasons are extreme and the backcountry, for all its raw beauty, is unyielding.
Among the lawless boom towns and outposts, only a few will succeed in this quest for glory. A Golden Eagle soars high on the winds watching the perilous hunt. Who will endure the longest journey? Who will conquer the tallest mountain pass, the treacherous terrain and rise worthy of the name YUKON STRIKER….
About the Yukon Striker
Those interested in riding the Yukon Striker will endure a 90 degree drop, 75 metres tall that leads to an underwater tunnel! This is also the longest and fastest dive coaster, with 1105 metres of track, going 130 km/h. Riders can expect a complete 360-degree loop, which has never been seen before on a dive coaster. This complex, massive coaster will have you experiencing a series of fun twists and turns, on top of the original plunge, making it enjoyable the whole way through.
A Unique Experience
Everything about the Yukon Striker is unique, right down to the seating arrangement! The creators of this coaster made sure riders would gain enhanced visibility by implementing stadium seating with 3 rows of 8 riders. Once riders reach the tip of the dive, the ride will hold for 3 seconds, so you can really see the drop. This makes for a much more exhilarating experience!
