October 10, 2018 – Drayton Manor confirmed the rumors of the immediate retirement of G Force, the park’s Maurer X-Car coaster. There is currently no specific date for the ride to be removed or details of any new attraction to replace it.
G Force features a drop out of the station into a beyond vertical lift hill called the Humpty Bump Lift and three inversions, two of which are part of a coaster element called a Bent Cuban Eight, which is unique to this type of coaster. It was the only X-Car coaster in the UK and one of only two coasters of its kind. The other is Dream Coaster at Dream City in Iraq.
