California Great America (CGA) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^I think the layout looks pretty cool considering they had to shoe horn it into a small section of the park, look like it has a lot of "classic" little GCI elements mixed in through out which is a good thing. I love the first drop and how it snakes around the sky tower, should be a great addition to a park that seems like it really needed it.

OMG Gold Striker looks so incredibly awesome! & I already knew the name & was hoping it would be Gold Striker! You should see the posts on Facebook. All those idiots on there are complaining things like another wood coaster? Why would anybody complain? I am so grateful & thankful! How do I get invited to the media event before opening day of Gold Striker so I can get rides in before the public? I really want to be there!

Just got back from the Media Day event at CGA. It was a great announcement and the theming of it was spectacular. I can only imagine what the ride and the area will look like.

 

Met some new friends, had a blast! The stats are posted earlier, I think you might want to see some pics...

They had some good characters.

The tables were decked out in with gold nuggets.

I have a feeling CGA will strike gold with this new addition,

 

I'm looking forward to seeing this CGI addition to the park. I have a feeling the GP will be pretty ecstatic as well!

 

Wait... the coaster won't even be real!? Just CGI? Lame.

 

 

I blame autocorrect. But hey, for now it's just CGI.

Wow, the "Au" in "Au13" just hit me.

LOL! Not to poke fun, but.... someone didn't pay attention in chemistry, I guess!

 

I thought that was pretty much a given....

 

To be honest, I thought it stood for "August," the month of the announcement. No surprise, a lot of obvious tends to slip under my radar

I am SO happy for CGA! I'm so happy that they are getting a new coaster after all this time! And while I don't think it will be a crazy airtime machine, I think Gold Striker will be perfect for CGA and I can't wait until we can see the final product!
