According to police, the vehicle was clocked going 183km/hr in St. Catharines on January 4, 2021.

Meanwhile, the Canada's Wonderland coaster, which made its debut in April 2019, only reaches a max speed of 130km/hr.

According to the theme park, this ride is the "world's longest, tallest and fastest dive roller coaster."

The OPP's Highway Division says the incident resulted in a 7-day licence suspension and vehicle impoundment.

While you may like the thrill of high speeds, keep it to the theme parks and make sure to follow speed limits. 

This isn't the first time a driver has clocked high speeds. Back in November, another car was caught travelling as fast as a plane on the 403.
