The Gold Striker roller coaster at Great America is back up and running just in time for the Fourth of July holiday.

The newest roller coaster at the amusement park was shut down after neighbors complained the riders were making too much noise. Crews have now built a tunnel across part of the coaster to help muffle the sound.

The coaster closed Monday for reconstruction. It opened once more for riders late Wednesday afternoon.
