Gold Striker to feature tunnel

In a move likely to appease the neighbors' complaints about noise, Gold Striker's first drop will feature a 174-foot enclosed tunnel, which the park describes as the "world's longest covered initial descent tunnel on a wooden coaster," according to a press release.

The tunnel will have wood on both sides, a corrugated metal roof and in-fill underneath the tracks, to give a feel of plunging into a pitch-dark mine.
