    Airtimes Pace Intensity Rattle

    I rode this two times in the back row, and I was pretty impressed. GCI did a great job with this coaster. The pacing is great and the first drop in the back row is excellent. The layout is fantastic with plenty of airtime and fun moments. All around, it is a great coaster that is intense and just plain fun to ride. The intensity comes from the violent dips and turns, which in my opinion makes it better. Great woody! Only downfall is that it can be a little rough in certain spots, but I think that it adds to the intensity more than actually hurting the experience.

    The park re-tracked Gold Striker before the 2022 season and the difference is very noticeable. It's much smoother now and has an awesome first drop, great transitions, pacing, small airtime moments, and more.

    Capacity Pace Intensity Rattle Theming

    It really matters where you sit. The ride in the very back row is next level good, like almost El Toro good. Venture closer to the front, and you might find yourself in a world of hurt. In the wrong seat, this coaster will absolutely punish you. In the right seat, it’s hard to beat for a wooden coaster. Thank goodness for the seats, which are basically comfy couches. Thumbs down to the gold striker voice recording in the station. I would not want to be a ride operator listening to that all day. This is a great wooden coaster, and it sounds like it was even better a few years ago. The pace is pretty relentless, and the g’s are pretty nonstop. Just remember to sit in the very back row, or you might regret it.

    Fun Intensity Layout

    This is probably my favorite wooden coaster I've ridden so far, and I'm not normally a wooden coaster person. This thing HAULS. I love the forces you experience riding it and it's extremely smooth for what it is. It's definitely fun from the front--super enjoyable to see the surrounding track whizz by as you go--but the back man, the back. The trains are extremely long (9 cars/18 seats) so riding in the back is like experiencing a whole different ride. The intensity just slams by comparison. It absolutely WHIPS you over that first hill and THROWS you around every turn. There's lots of great airtime and it's just a joy to experience. Highly recommended.

    First Drop Pace Ejectors Rattle

    Ride's gotten noticeably rougher and darker brown since the glossy opening-year experience but wow, Gold Striker gets me every time. That little bunny hill before the final banked turn is delightfully forceful. Proud to have this at my home park :)

    Pace Disappointing! Airtimes

    I am going to be honest and say I was disappointed by this coaster. Before I went to CGA this past summer, this was hyped up to be a top tier GCI with awesome pacing and airtime. While I agree with that first description, the latter is what let me down. I did not get any good airtime on my ride (even on a warm day). The pacing was fast, and that was great, but the only forces I felt were some decent laterals, but no strong positive or negative Gs. I will admit that I only got one ride, so I am looking forward to going back and riding this more because I want to love this ride!

    First Drop Pace Intensity Rattle

    Gold Striker is an awesome wooden roller coaster. The first drop is the most exciting part of the ride, as it is completely enclosed by a tunnel, even though the drop itself is a typical GCI twisted drop. This ride is a package of intensity and pacing in one, which is mainly because of the amazing laterals and twisted layout. Unfortunately, over the past years Gold Striker has developed a bad rattle, which has negatively affected my rating. I'm hoping that the park can retrack Gold Striker before it becomes too rough to ride.

    First Drop Pace Intensity

    Really fun GCI woodie that hauls through its layout from start to finish. The tunneled first drop along with few other great near miss elements, along with some really intense but smooth sections, make this a pretty memorable ride. Definitely one of the best woodies on the West Coast.
