I am thinking of possibly going there next summer, however, I have never been anywhere outside of the United States. With that being said, is it hard to cross into Canada with an Enhanced License? I already have one but I never used it. How does that whole process at the border work? I would have to imagine that they're probably not just going to look at the card and let me pass right away without some sort of process.

That's basically it. They might ask where you're headed, how long you're going to be there or what you have in the car. It's a pretty straightforward common sense process that generally takes like 60 seconds.
Remember to call your phone company and a talk text and data plan for Canada (which is usually like a few bucks a day) and turn roaming on. Aside from that there's really nothing you need to do before heading up there. Gas up in America, Canadian gas prices are bullsh*t.
You'll also get a lot less flack saying you're going to Canada's Wonderland/Niagara Falls than La Ronde.
I got stopped and searched when I tried to re-enter the US after going to La Ronde. Border Patrol (and many on this site) couldn't believe I'd drive to Canada just to go to that park.

Definitely looking forward to riding this. I'm glad there's finally a quality inverting coaster in the lineup.
I'm very slightly concerned about the vests after having ridden Banshee several times, but only slightly. Even on Banshee they weren't a huge deal, but they were a bit uncomfortably tight on my shoulders (I'm 6'4").
Regardless, it's exciting, and I can't wait.
Banshee had my least favorite B&M vest restraints of any that I'd been on, because whatever smooth plastic-like material covered them had worn off, so they kinda stuck to your shirt and didn't allow any movement. Others, like on Gatekeeper or Valravn were just fine though.
Canada's Wonderland has sent us some new Yukon Striker construction photos and video as the installation of the coaster track nears completion. Here's a summary of where they're at with the project so far:
Currently, the track is about 90% complete – we are finishing our helix today and next week will turn to our 360-degree loop, Immelmann #2 and connect it to the mid-course brake run. The entire coaster consists of 107 track pieces and 42 support columns. The largest column is 63 metres high and over a metre in diameter. In the new year our trains will arrive, we’ll finish building the station, queue lines, complete landscaping and install canopies, lighting and sound systems. And of course, we’ll do a LOT of testing.
All that's left is the vertical loop as far as track is concerned. The rest of the off season will be focused on Frontier Canada. I hope they don't half A$$ it with details. We've had it pretty good weather wise so far so I hope we are a little more ahead with building. And I would appreciate if we grow new trees for all the ones we lost because of this project.
