Gold Striker Topped Out at California's Great America

California's Great America proudly hosted a Gold Striker topping out ceremony on January 30, 2013 in Santa Clara, California. A crane hoisted the top section of the tallest bent high into the air where members of the Great Coasters International, Inc. crew were waiting to attach the crowning piece. This brought the new wooden roller coaster's lift hill to its maximum height of 108 feet.

A news report covering the topping out of Gold Striker is available here.

The park reported that construction is on schedule for a Spring 2013 opening.
