Yukon Striker First Ride Fundraiser
Want a chance to be the first to ride this world-record breaking dive coaster? The more you raise for SickKids Foundation, the more entries you’ll receive in this charity draw.
Canada’s Wonderland, in support of SickKids, is holding an exciting First Ride Fundraiser where for every $100 participants raise, they’ll receive one entry in a draw to be the first-to-ride the world-record breaking dive roller coaster Yukon Striker!
The park is offering 72 seats on three trains during Yukon Striker’s first ride, April 24. One hundred per cent of funds raised goes to SickKids Foundation in support of world-class care, research education and a brand-new Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, ON.
Individuals can begin their fundraising here and donations can be made until the contest closes on April 16, 2019 at 11:59pm. SickKids will conduct a random draw from all the entries to select the 72 riders, who will be contacted that week.
Share with your friends, family and colleagues to help you with your campaign to receive more entries! Companies, groups, school classes can also fundraise collectively to designate a rider for Yukon Striker’s big debut.
No purchase necessary. Contest is open to residents of Canada, excluding Quebec. See complete contest rules here.

Experience of a Lifetime
In addition to helping build a brand-new SickKids and supporting child health, those selected as the 72 riders will have the distinction of being the first in the world to ride Yukon Striker on April 24.
The thrills include:
- An exhilarating ride on the longest (1,105m), tallest (75m) and fastest (130km/h) dive coaster in the world
- A 90-degree drop into an underwater tunnel
- The only 360-degree loop for a dive coaster in the world
- Floorless, stadium-style seating with nothing beneath you but open air!
What You Get
Seat assignment will take place at the time of draw, from seat 1 to 72 across three trains. For example, the first entry drawn will be assigned seat number 1, first row, on the first train, etc. The 72 draw winners will be invited to the First Ride event on Wednesday, April 24, with a ceremony and the coveted first public ride at noon. Along with getting to be one of the first to experience this world-record breaking dive coaster, the winners may also bring one guest (who can ride Yukon Striker with them after the first three trains), they will be treated to lunch, will receive a commemorative gift and an on-ride photo.
