Gold Striker is a Great Coasters International wooden roller coaster located at California's Great America in Santa Clara, California, USA. Opened in 2013 at a cost of $10 million, it is the first roller coaster built at the park since Psycho Mouse, which opened in 2001. It is also the third GCI roller coaster built in the state of California after Roar at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in 1999 and Apocalypse at Six Flags Magic Mountain in 2009.
Gold Striker opened on May 31, 2013.
On July 1, 2013, Gold Striker was temporarily closed due to noise complaints. According to park management, the high thrill of the ride caused screaming passengers to slightly exceed city standards. The attraction reopened on July 4, 2013 after a tunnel was added.
