Canada's Wonderland was just ranked one of the 100 greatest places in the world
Canada's Wonderland is a place like no other, and those who've been there know that for sure.
But now, thanks to TIME's 100 Greatest Places 2019 list, everyone else will know too.
The list — which includes categories such as museums, parks, restaurants, and hotels — was compiled using suggestions from TIME editors, correspondents around the world and industry experts.
Each one was then evaluated based on quality, originality, sustainability, innovation and influence.
TIME then created a list of "100 new and newly-noteworthy destinations to experience right now," and it's no wonder Wonderland made the list.
In TIME's write-up about Canada's Wonderland, the new Yukon Striker ride is pointed out as noteworthy, as it is now "the world’s tallest, fastest and longest dive coaster—a model that features a 90-degree drop."
"This coaster plunges into an underwater tunnel, does a 360-degree loop and has floorless cars that leave riders hanging in the open air as they careen along its 3,625 ft. of track for 3½ minutes of unbridled thrills," said Alejandro de la Garza.
The only other Canadian location to be granted a spot on the list is the Central Library in Calgary, one of North America’s largest library systems.
