Welcome to the official Blog for the construction of the tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster in Northern California: Gold Striker at California’s Great America.
We’re super excited about our new ride, and we hope that you are too! High-speed twists, turns, drops, station fly-by and the Old West are the top features of Gold Striker, with the most exciting features of the top wooden roller coasters in the world incorporated into the ride.
The ride experience on Gold Striker is going to be amazing. This is a roller coaster that you’re going to want to ride over and over again. The thrill will never wear out.
Why Gold Striker? We wanted to recognize the pioneering and adventurous spirit of the California gold-seekers who rushed the area in 1849.
Be sure to follow the construction of this spectacular new ride on our website, but there are also great video and photo opportunities available when you visit the park this fall from the Sky Tower in Celebration Plaza.
