Any idea if Yukon Striker will be included in a 2019 Fast Lane Plus Pass? I can't find any information on the CW website.

 

No... they definitely won't be adding the brand new coaster to Fastlane Plus. Why would they ever do such a thing?

 

Can tell if you're being sarcastic or not but if you're not why wouldn't they include it? They did for Behemoth and Leviathan. It'll help sell more of those expensive tickets.

Another new thing announced is the gold pass which will include Halloween Haunt and Winterfest. From reading the benefits, looks like they are taking things away from the regular season pass. Early entry will be for Gold and Platinum pass holders now. Its about time they offered more things for higher level pass holders

Yes, it'll end up being on FastLane Plus, usually the shiny new ride is.

This looks great. I enjoy the color scheme and am happy they went with this name and not something ridiculous. I've long wished B&M would actually go places with their Dive Machine designs, and with Valkyria and now Yukon Striker, here we are. I especially love that it doesn't immediately hit the MCBR after the first inversion. My only qualm is vest restraints, but such is life. Looking forward to trying this one out.

True, however Millennium Force didn’t hold a record(s) like Valravn does.

Upon completion in 2000, Millennium Force broke six world records and was the world's first giga coaster . . .

 

Sorry if I was not clear. My point is that when CF built Fury 325, they did not take records from Millennium Force. Those records were gone only a few months after its opening when Steel Dragon 2000 came around. The scenario for Valravn / Yukon Striker is different, and that is simply what I'm trying to say.

 

And it is most definitely NOT a bad thing! I LOVE that CW has a huge new coaster with lots of records. I couldn't be more happy with this addition really.

All this fuzz about a fairly dull looking coaster. Why is every park buying short wing and dive coasters? What happened to inverts and floorless coasters?

 

Times have changed. Dive Coasters seem to be the *thing to have* right now... Just like Inverts were a while back.

I don't know what all the complaining is about. Yukon Striker looks like a GREAT addition to the park. Sure it may not have been what every other coaster enthusiast wanted, but it still looks like a solid addition to the park. It's also refreshing to see a more unique layout on a dive coaster.

According to the CW website, Regular Season Pass holders will still get ERT...

There will have been a total of FOUR B&M Dive Coasters built in North America between 2004 - 2019. (16 seasons) I'm not sure you can really call that a trend.

 

Just like Inverts were a while back.

In comparison, there were 18 B&M inverts built in North America within that same time frame.

 

I don't think this is a good comparison.

They offer a gold pass now but you wouldn't know it. When you click on the ticket link on their site only the season pass is talked about. You almost have to look for the Gold Pass link.

 

They offer Haunt and Winterfest for Gold pass and higher but really don't advertise it. You would think that they want more people to buy the Gold pass.

Oh my what a ride! I really think the layout is pretty good but tbh I think the MCBR won’t be too functional, I think the drop after will be fun, but it will only mildly increase capacity. Love the first half of the layout though! I can’t remember if I heard it might have a vertical loop or if I dreamt it, but I swear I’ve thought about it for this ride before! Seems sweet and the layout looks a lot better than Valravn.

 

I will say that after riding SheiKra I wish Valravn and Yukon Striker would have the old restraints, but I’ll love the ride none the less. Plus I think enthusiasts focus too much on the small things like the tiny bit of layout after the MCBR or the restraints, enjoy the ride for what it is!

Curious to see how this Winterfest works out for them. A natural fit for my home park VF, but even VF is north of CW so maybe not.

 

As far as the new dive coaster goes it probably already has a B&M rattle so it won't be worth riding at all.

 

Actually, after looking at the layout of the new coaster it reminds to go find my passport.
