It’s Episode 3 of the Coastin’ the Country Podcast with Marcus Leshock!

This week I am traveling up to Vaughan, Ontario to visit Canada’s Wonderland. Yukon Striker – the world’s tallest, fastest and longest dive coaster – is ready to make its debut. I was there for the official media day and got to ride it before it opens.

You can see my FULL RIDE here!

And here’s a video edition of my “Roller Coaster Review” of Yukon Striker:

We were able to talk to Grace Peacock, the park’s communication director, as well as some enthusiasts who were there – including the Amusement Insiders. They’re based in Canada and have been following the ride’s progress since it was announced.

Also, I discuss some things you can do around the area – including a visit to Niagara Falls. I was able to visit for the first time. There truly is nothing like it. Here’s a video from that day:

You could easily make a trip out of Canada’s Wonderland, Niagara Falls, and downtown Toronto. We discuss that on the podcast as well. If you’d like to learn more about Canada’s Wonderland, here you go!
