Drayton Manor: G Force closed for rest of season

G Force, Drayton Manor

Drayton Manor has closed the G Force rollercoaster for the rest of the theme park’s season due to maintenance issues.

The ride will not operate again in 2018, the Tamworth attraction confirmed on Twitter.

There are unconfirmed reports that the ride will be permanently removed, but the park has said in further Tweets that “no further information” was available other than this season’s closure.

G Force remains listed among the rides on Drayton Manor’s website with no reference to closure.

Known for its inverted lift and across-the-lap restraints, the Maurer Söhne-built rollercoaster was opened at the Staffordshire park in 2005.

Ride Rater has approached Drayton Manor for comment.
