New Canadian Roller Coaster has the world's longest, fastest, tallest drop

This month, Canada’s Wonderland, a theme park outside Toronto, debuted the Yukon Striker roller coaster, which features the “longest, fastest and tallest dive roller coaster” in the world. Named for the Canadian gold rush of the late 1800s, the Striker reaches a maximum speed of 80 miles per hour along its 3,625 feet of track — the length of a dozen football fields — and has four inversions, including a 360-degree loop. The coaster offers a full view of the ground below thanks to floorless seats, and takes a three-second pause at the drop’s precipice, giving riders a chance to contemplate the decisions that brought them to the brink of a 90-degree plunge into an underwater tunnel.
