News & Rumors



United Kingdom


Park News - (10/14/18) UPDATE - While the ride is still listed on the park’s website, the closed G-Force coaster at Drayton Manor is now said to be closed for the foreseeable future. The unique compact looping coaster from Maurer just opened back in 2005. There have been some rumors on social media claiming it may be closed for good, but this has not yet been fully determined as the future fate of the ride is said to still be determined. For now just expect it to remain closed through at least the 2019 season.  (UPDATE - We still expect this ride to remain closed and be confirmed as to be removed sometime in 2019.)
    (1/12/18) I’m told that Drayton Manor has closed and removed the park’s old Cable Cars (aerial tram) ride. From what I’m told the ride may have closed sometime in 2017, but as of right now, it looks like the cable and old supports may have also been removed from the park.
