Yukon Striker New for 2019 Canada's Wonderland
#1
The announcement came this morning from Canada's Wonderland on the B&M Dive coaster that they have been building, there wasn't much mystery on the type of coaster but its nice to get some information on the stats of the ride.

223 feet (68m) tall
80 miles per hour
3,625 feet  long
4 Inversrions

 drop at 246 feet (75m).


One interesting part of this coaster is its the first Dive Machine to feature a vertical loop. I think this part of the ride has been receiving most of the hate but I disagree with the hate. I think many in the coaster community consider a loop boring or a thing of the past. Yeah we have many more inversion types available nowadays but I like a good standard loop. The first half of this ride looks good and the post MCBR is just there lol.

B&M Dive machines do one thing well tall 90 degree drops. Cannibal is hard to compare to them though. Cannibal is its own beast and is more comparable to Eurofighters than B&M's.

I actually like Yukon Striker and was unimpressed by Valrayvn. I really like the vertical loop nod to Sky Rider too.

I agree. Yukon Striker looks much better than Valrayvn.
