New one-of-a-kind ride turns you upside down at Canada's Wonderland

Tundra Twister is a pendulum ride that swings people 360 degrees, 47 metres high, at speeds up to 75 km/h

Thrill-seekers can enjoy the newest ride to open at Canada's Wonderland — a swinging pendulum called Tundra Twister that's one of a kind in the world.

The ride swings up to 40 riders at a time 360 degrees upside down, 47 metres or 154 feet high, at speeds up to 75 km/h, according to a Canada's Wonderland media advisory.  

It's made by Mondial, a Dutch manufacturer that has made other rides at Wonderland, and was a prototype, meaning it is the only one of its kind in the world. 

Tundra Twister is located in the Frontier Canada area of the amusement park, near Yukon Striker, which opened in 2019 as the fastest, longest and tallest dive coaster. 

You must 54 inches tall to ride it. 

The other new ride at Canada's Wonderland this year is Snoopy's Racing Railway, which is a family-friendly coaster in the Planet Snoopy area. It goes from zero to 50 km/h in a matter of seconds before taking guests through the dips and turns of a wild railway adventure. 

Canada's Wonderland in Vaughan is open daily in the summer from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
