Roller Coaster Riders Screamed So Loudly Ride Was Shut Down

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (July 5, 2013)--The Gold Striker roller coaster at Great America in Santa Clara, Calif., was shut down this week because riders were screaming too loudly.

The screams exceeded the decibel limit agreed upon in a settlement with Prudential Real Estate, which owns adjacent properties.

The wooden coaster reopened on Wednesday after Great America covered a portion of the track with a sound-dampening tunnel.
