    Fun Intensity

    つよいGがかかる瞬間、「いま自分はどれだけブサイクな顔をしているのだろう」と考えてしまいます。 どんなときも、自意識からは抜けだせないんです。

    Airtimes Masterpiece Intensity Rattle

    Insane for a classic. This ride is all about airtime and intensity, and the layout is a plus. It really gives you that feeling of barging off the tracks at every turn. Reliability isn't a big issue here, as the ride impressively for its age quire rarely breaks down due to good maintenance by the city of Santa Cruz.

    Fun Tear it down! Pointless

    Even though it's still a fun ride and despite its recent re-tracking, it should still be torn down or RMC'd to make way for a new thrilling and innovative coaster at California's Great America.

    Fun Smoothness Headbanging Too short Pointless

    This coaster doesn't really do much. It essentially is a loop, helix, corkscrew, then boom, you're back at the station. Despite its simplicity and minor headbanging, it was still pretty smooth and fun.

    Capacity Layout

    Pretty ordinary layout and slow dispatches.

    First Drop Pace Intensity Rattle

    Definitely a top ten wooden roller coaster in the US, probably the best GCI in California over Ghost Rider at Knott's Berry Farm and Apocalypse: The Ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain. The first drop is the most compelling part of the ride, as it is completely enclosed by a tunnel, though the drop itself is a typical GCI twisted drop. This ride is a package of intensity and pacing in one, which is strongly attributed to the banked turns and twisted layout. While it does rattle, it is pretty much guaranteed that any wooden coaster will easily develop rattle with age. It's about time that Gold Striker should get a re-tracking.
