Yukon Striker

Client: Canada’s Wonderland
Location: Vaughan, Ontario
Trades: Ironworkers
Engineer: Bolliger & Mabillard

The contract was for the offloading and assembly of components and erection only of a new roller coaster. This include all the station members, transfer station, columns, track elements, setting of equipment and the trains (to accommodate the guests). There were many unique challenges with this Roller Coaster due to the logistically sensitive and congested site. Many complex erection challenges were overcome and at some points (4) cranes were simultaneously used. It is the largest dive coaster in the world. It has an overall drop of 245’ (with a 90 degree drop), reaches 80mph and is 3,625’ long.
