SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- A Northern California roller coaster appears to have been a little too much fun.
The Gold Striker at Great America in Santa Clara had to be closed this week because riders were screaming too loudly.

The San Jose Mercury News reports (http://bit.ly/1aK6QAw) that the shrieks were exceeding the decibel limit agreed upon in a settlement with Prudential Real Estate, which owns adjacent properties.
So Great America had to cover a portion of the track in a sound-dampening tunnel. The wooden roller coaster reopened on Wednesday after the work was completed.
Gold Striker debuted earlier this year.
