Canada’s Wonderland is One of the World’s 100 Greatest Places

One of only two Canadian attractions to land on the list

TIME Magazine ranked the World’s 100 Greatest Places and Canada’s Wonderland landed a spot on the list thanks to it’s newest attraction: Yukon Striker. It’s the world’s tallest, fastest and longest dive coaster; standing 245 feet tall with top speeds of 128 km/h.

This is TIME’s second annual ranking and the list is compiled by gathering nominations in a variety of categories. They then evaluate each one based on “quality, originality, sustainability, innovation and influence”.

One more Canadian place landed on this list, Calgary’s Central Public Library.
