The revolutionary new rollercoaster hung you from the hip and you experienced an unparalleled freedom of motion!

The coaster closed in October 2018 after downtime during the 2018 season. Drayton Manor stated the maintenance cost for the coaster was too expensive and therefore the decision was to close the ride.

A white-knuckle journey through 385 metres of rolls, tight camelbacks, high-backed curves and loops – at speeds of up to 70 kph – at an amazing 4.3G!

The coaster was originally called Project X but changed to G Force before Drayton Manor opened the ride.
