Yukon Striker will be the world's tallest, fastest, and longest dive coaster when it opens next summer in the Toronto-area park. Featuring the requisite 90-degree drop, the ride will top out at 223 feet, diving 245 feet into an underwater mining shaft, for a twist on what's become a dive coaster-standard element. The ride also will feature four inversions, including a 360-degree loop, and a top speed of 80 mph.

The new coaster will give the park 17 roller coasters, by RCDB count, tying it with Cedar Point for the most coasters in the Cedar Fair chain. Who imagined that Cedar Point ever would share that coaster crown? Anyway, it appears that that Cedar Fair wants to make sure that the title of "Canada's Roller Coast" actually means something.
