Yukon Striker roller coaster- a 245-foot straight dive

othersPosted on 01 January 2050 by Team

Can you imagine hanging over a straight drop -- and staring down 245 feet into the gaping maw of an underwater tunnel? Well, you no longer have to imagine.


You can travel to Canada's Wonderland, a large theme park outside of Toronto, and submit yourself to that thrill on the Yukon Striker roller coaster. Canada's Wonderland says it's "the longest, fastest and tallest dive roller coaster in the world."


Few stats about this roller coaster supplied by the park that will take your breath away:

1. 80 mph (130 km/h): That would be the maximum speed.


2. 3,625 feet, 1,105 meters: That's how far you'll travel (about the length of 12 football fields).


3.  4: That's the number of inversions (coaster speak for being turned upside down and then returned right side up) you'll be put through.


And because all of this isn't going to be special enough, the Striker will have floorless seating for "enhanced visibility," a three-second dangle before you're released into the straight drop and a 360-degree loop, which the park says has never before been on a dive coaster.
