Canada’s Wonderland proudly boasts that the park now has the world’s longest, fastest and tallest dive roller coaster, the Yukon Striker.
“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.”
Canada’s Wonderland is a 300-acre theme park with more than 200 attractions including 17 rollercoasters and is the home to Splash Works, a 20-acre water park.
After enjoying some rides, you’ll want to check out the excitement provided by the Ultimate Thrills Circus and the Chinese Acrobats at International Showplace taking place throughout July and August.
Wonderland has a big party just for kids taking place from July 22 to Aug. 5. WonKidZfest includes live entertainment, dance parties, the ultimate foam pit and special visits from favourite TV characters such as Thomas & Friends, Toopy & Binoo, Alvin and The Chipmunks, Paw Patrol, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dora the Explorer and Marvel superheroes.
Whether you live for the thrill of roller coaster rides or you prefer to sit back and enjoy live entertainment, Wonderland has something to keep kids of all ages entertained for hours on end.
