That's a good idea... I'd imagine the line for YS will be huge and most of the other lines fairly short...

Here's the POV of Yukon Striker that Canada's Wonderland provided during the media event:

It seems like there are only a couple moments where the train slowed. As much as enthusiasts bitched and moaned about the portion over the MCBR I see nothing wrong with the decently tall dive, what appears to be a pop of air time, and a nice tight helix. Just another Valravn clone...

Looks fun. I look forward to riding it whenever I make a trip to Toronto. I like how Canada's Wonderlands top 3 is basically "3 giant B&Ms" then there's like 50 crazy flats.

Yukon Striker really does round out the big coaster lineup nicely. Great assortment of flats, but don't forget coasters like Vortex and Backlot. They're not top tier, but they are plenty of fun.

Vortex is great because even when the queue is completely full on a busy day, it's less than an hour wait. Also it's fast-paced throughout.

I agree and I also expect the ride to run a bit faster and better than it does in this POV. They filmed it on a dreary and probably cold day where it stopped completely in the midcourse for some reason where the train was likely empty. I'm assuming that it doesn't paint the ride in the best light.

That drop at night will be something else. It's seriously impressive that they were able to thread the needle, I honestly think I'd be a little nervous up there looking down at the tunnel! Looks like a lot of fun.

We are still waiting for spring here in Toronto....it has been a long winter...Easter Monday was the warmest day we have had in a while (18C) and then back to the dreary again. With the amount of rain we have had recently...they probably didn't even have to fill the lake back up after it was drained.

Pretty sure come the summer it is going to run pretty quickly (if Leviathan and Behemoth are any indicator). It did seem to slow down a bit on the MCBR but I am not overly worried.
Nice video though....and there is a lot of "notice' being taken of the ride in Toronto, both on social media and with the GP.

I'm really surprised they never themed the tunnel and just left it as bare concrete. They went the extra mile for the mine-shaft area after the vertical loo.

The POV looks great! I was surprised that the train basically used up all of its momentum leading up to the MCBR, but like others have said, it will probably run faster in the summer. I've gotta get up to this park soon.
