Canada’s Wonderland Has an Exciting New Ride That Will Make You Scream

Since I was a child, the highlight of every summer was making a trip (or several) to Canada’s Wonderland. As a teenager, my friends and I would be dropped off in the morning, and be picked up at the park’s closing.

Now that I have kids of my own, the tradition continues! This year, my son is old enough to be dropped off to spend the day with his friends at Canada’s Wonderland!

Yukon Striker

This year, Canada’s Wonderland has an exciting new ride that will make you scream. Either you’ll love it or fear it – the Yukon Striker. It’s the longest, tallest and fastest dive roller coaster in the world! The ride features a 90-degree drop into an underwater tunnel, and a 360-degree loop, the first ever for a dive coaster.

Canada’s Wonderland: Wonder Mountain’s Guardian

Every summer, a trip to Canada’s Wonderland is a must. It’s tradition, no question. But since having kids, we’ve opted for seasons passes – it just makes more sense for us. It’s fun to be spontaneous and hop in the car and head over to the park for a few hours after dinner, or when the park opens until about lunch time.

Now that my kids are older, they can ride some of the larger roller coasters – The Bat, Flight Deck and Vortex. But we still love some of the oldies-but-goodies like Dragon Fire, Minebuster and Wild Beast.

Canada's Wonderland

I love how Canada’s Wonderland introduces a new ride so often! Behemoth and Leviathan were introduced in recent years. Now, the park has introduced yet another new ride – Wonder Mountain’s Guardian.

Canada's Wonderland win tickets

This innovative ride is set to thrill riders with exciting roller coaster elements, and stunning interactive 3D animation. The journey begins with a perilous climb up the side of the park’s iconic Wonder Mountain. From there, riders will plummet into the core of the mountain and travel on 1,000 feet (305M) of coaster track through five different layers of a 3-Dimensional world, battling mythical creatures while in search of a king’s lost treasure. The quest will culminate as riders enter the dragon’s lair for the ultimate battle with a heart stopping finale that will shock thrill seekers of all ages.

Wonder Mountain’s Guardian

Construction on the new ride began in August 2013, with over 150 crew members working throughout the off-season to get the ride ready for May 2014. Montreal based Triotech designed and manufactured the interactive multi-media entertainment platform that includes the ride’s incredible 3D animation, as well as the projection, sound, and special effects. The ride features the Longest Interactive Screen in the world, measuring 500 feet long (152M), and 13 feet high (4M)!

Wonder Mountain’s Guardian is the park’s 17th rollercoaster, adding another unique thrill to the already diverse collection of coasters that Canada’s Wonderland is known for.
