Long Description:
Rated by the park as a 5/5 in terms of ride extremeness, but I would rate it higher than that even. It was well worth the 60 minute wait, although I am not in any hurry to do it again - this one tested my limits in for a ride. As the worlds tallest, fastest and longest dive coaster.

The ride starts fairly fast with a rapid climb to the top of a 245' drop. The train pauses at the top, then moves forward, only to stop again at the edge of the drop, with the front row passengers actually hanging 90 degrees - and then it drops. With a top speed of 80 mph / 130 km/h, the train flies though an underwater tunnel, 4 inversions including a complete 360 degree loop, and 3,625 feet or track before returning to the start.

Be exhilarated by Yukon Striker's epic journey high above the park's skyline where you'll hang over a 90-degree drop for three breathtaking seconds, staring 245 feet down into an underwater tunnel. Then suddenly you dive, reaching speeds of 130 km/h and soaring through four dynamic inversions, including a complete 360-degree loop – the only one of its kind for a dive coaster.
