Gold Striker Update From California's Great America

© California's Great America
We haven't forgotten about you, Gold Striker!  The new GCI wooden roller coaster at California's Great America is steadily making headway, with a significant portion of the ride now standing.

If you check out some recent photos taken inside the park, all that progress can be seen.  California's Great America has started to build the ride's turn which pokes out at the adjacent midway, and has closed the observation tower that the lift hill and first drop will wrap around.  This way, they can start to pour footers in the area, which will be the tallest part of the ride.
