Gold Striker Construction Update

Guess who got Gold Striker construction pics? WE DID!

A PureCoaster reader sent us a set of construction pics showing off the latest on this new GCI beauty.

Now, as someone who finds trip reports of twister coasters VERY confusing, especially if it’s at a park I’ve never been to, so I’ve made a chart that hopefully helps to clear up exactly what the photos are showing.

  • Orange; dueling turns
  • Green; double overbanked turns
  • Red; showcase turn, (because it looks really showy)

Overlooking the park entrance from the Star Tower, with the new 49ers Standium in the back.

Flight Deck invert on the side, got to love the greenery in the park.

Onto Gold Striker!

An older image, with construction focussing on the now complete double overbanked turns.

The two overlapping turns appear to be finished, (view from behind)

The inside view of the double overlapping turns.

Work continues outwards.

More footers, maybe for the “showcase turn (labelled red)”


Well that’s it for Gold Striker construction pics, we hope to get some more pics soon to show you guys. Thanks again to CoasterMech for sending us the pics.
