A carriage full of people were stuck upside down today at Drayton Manor.
Guests were left ‘shocked and shaken’ after being stuck upside down on a ride at Drayton Manor theme park today.
G-Force ride opened at Drayton Manor back in 2005 and it’s ‘the only X-Car coaster in the UK, the G Force roller coaster at Drayton Manor is a ride that’s been designed to push your body to new limits as you’re suspended upside down’.
The ride ‘boasts 3 inversions in a rare roller coaster element: a Bent Cuban Eight’.
Drayton Manor say ‘G Force uses a unique inverted chain lift, similar to a standard vertical loop, meaning that when you reach the top, you’ll be fully upside-down, ready and waiting for the ride of your life.’
