Plunge, twist, and dive like never before on the world's longest, fastest, and tallest roller coaster of its kind.

Canada's Wonderland, located just north of Toronto in Vaughan, Ontario, has debuted the Yukon Striker.

The coaster, which stretches 3,625 feet in length, takes riders on a 245 foot drop at a 90 degree angle and a 360-degree loop, reaching a top speed of 80 miles per hour.

Thrill-seekers will be able to test their nerves with the Yukon Striker when the amusement park opens to the public on May 3rd.

WKBW got a sneak peek at the coaster. Cameras were rolling as WKBW television station reporter Jeff Slawson took his first run on the Yukon Striker. In the video, watch Slawson's reaction as the train pauses for three seconds at the summit before it dives down. You'll get a good idea of what kind of screaming you'll do if you are willing to stomach this record-breaking ride.
