Gold Striker, California's Great America
Location: Santa Clara, California
In the works since 2009, Great America's Gold Striker is officially ready to take off this summer. After an initial drop of more than 100 feet, the wooden coaster wraps around the Sky Tower before twisting, banking, and bunny hopping crazily on its 3,197 feet of track. Curious? Take a virtual test drive here.
