And not a tear was shed. No, in all seriousness, G-Force is often said to be a bad ride, but I doubt there will be much outpouring of strong emotion on either side of the fence at this news. It was ugly, low throughput, short, uncomfortable and generally rather ponderous, but I can't think of any one area in which it really was outstandingly terrible. I suspect in hindsight the park probably regrets this particular purchase. Maybe it seemed like a good idea at a time when if you couldn't stretch to a B&M, your choice was practically Vekoma or nothing, but in a few more years the Gerstlauer Eurofighter came along and ran off with that market. The Eurofighter has its own issues of course, some being common to the X-Car, but would still likely have been a better choice. Let's hope the CoasterNerds comment is accurate in that it's more a case of the ride having been a long term maintenance headache or suddenly become sufficiently knackered to be deemed 'beyond economic repair', rather than that DMP flat out can't afford to do whatever is required. That way we can cling to some hope that perhaps one day they might make that top notch thrill coaster purchase I'd dearly love to see.
