Gold Striker Lift Hill Rising

© California's Great America
Wow, things are really continuing to move quick over at California's Great America, where Gold Striker construction rages onward, and quite literally upward.

The park has started to build the lift hill for their new Great Coasters International ride, and at this point the only major elements left to complete are the lift, drop, and first turn segment.  It appears as though the footer sections for those elements are nearing completion, so it won't be long until the ride is complete.

The aerial photo above that the park has shared really gives an idea of the high banks and other features that Gold Striker will offer riders.  Really looking forward to this one!
