World's tallest, longest and fastest dive rollercoaster!

Thrill-seekers, get ready to face a brand new challenge; the world's tallest, longest and fastest dive rollercoaster!

 

The Yukon Striker will reach top speeds of 80mph, feature a height drop of 245 feet including the underground tunnel, and offer FOUR inversions (where you get turned upside down then returned the right side up).

 

At the top of the drop, you'll be held for three seconds over the 90-degree drop before you drop down into the underwater tunnel, and there'll even be a complete 360-degree loop for an extra adrenaline rush.

The whole ride will take 3 minutes 25 seconds as you cover all 3,625 feet of the track.

 

It's not the world's fastest rollercoaster (that accolade goes to the Formula Rossa in Abu Dhabi's Ferrari World) - but it is the fastest dive rollercoaster, aka a ride where there's a straight vertical drop which sees riders facing down.

 

The rollercoaster will open at the Canada's Wonderland theme park in Ontario later this year, and has been designed by Bolliger & Mabillard.

It will be part of the park's new gold-rush themed land, Frontier Canada, and will feature three trains, each of which can hold up to 24 riders.

 

Construction first began back in January 2018 but earlier this month the last piece of track was laid down as preparations begin ahead of the early 2019 launch.

 

Of course Canada isn't exactly the most budget-friendly of trips for Brits, but if you are tempted to include it in a wider getaway, there are plenty of easy ways to find cheap flights to Canada .
