WORLDKINGS - Worldkings News - America Records Institute (AMRI) Yukon Striker: Fastest dive coaster in the world


( Upon opening in May 2019, Yukon Striker is presently the fastest Dive Coaster, with trains traveling at 130 kilometers per hour.

The Dive Coaster is a steel roller coaster model developed and engineered by Bolliger & Mabillard. The design features one or more near-vertical drops that are approximately 90 degrees, which provide a moment of free-falling for passengers. The experience is enhanced by unique trains that seat up to ten riders per row, spanning only two or three rows in total. Unlike traditional train design, this distinguishing aspect gives all passengers virtually the same experience throughout the course of the ride. Another defining characteristic of Dive Coasters is the holding brake at the top of the lift hill that holds the train momentarily right as it enters the first drop, suspending some passengers with a view looking straight down and releasing suddenly moments later.

Yukon Striker is a steel roller coaster at Canada's Wonderland in Vaughan, Ontario. Designed as a dive coaster from manufacturer Bolliger & Mabillard, the ride opened to the general public on 3 May 2019 in place of SkyRider, a roller coaster that was removed from the park in 2014. Featuring a height of 68 meters, a length of 1,105 meters, and a maximum speed of 130 km/h, Yukon Striker is the world's tallest, longest, and fastest dive coaster, sharing its height record with Valravn at Cedar Point. Its four inversions and drop length of 75 meters also set world records among dive coaster models.

Yukon Striker operates with three fiberglass trains each seating 3 rows of 8 for a total of 24 riders per train. The trains use vest restraints which were introduced on B&M's Wing Coasters. Each train is colored a different color, Gold, Silver or Bronze.

Upon opening in May 2019, Yukon Striker broke four Dive Coaster records and matched another Dive Coaster record. The roller coaster is presently the fastest Dive Coaster, with trains traveling at 130 kilometers per hour; the longest Dive Coaster, with a track length of 1,105 meters; and features the longest drop out of any Dive Coaster at 75 meters.

In addition to breaking several Dive Coaster records, Yukon Striker also matched the record for the tallest dive coaster in the world. At a height of 68 meters, Yukon Striker shares the record as the tallest Dive Coaster in the world, with Valravn, a Dive Coaster in Cedar Point. Upon its opening, Yukon Striker became the only dive coaster in the world to feature a 360-degree loop.
