Diving Machine G5

Diving Machine G5 is a roller coaster at Janfusun Fancyworld in Taiwan. It was built in 2000 by Swiss manufacturers Bolliger & Mabillard and was the second Dive coaster model to be built, the first beingOblivion at Alton Towers in the United Kingdom. It is located in the Sky Plaza section of the park. It is a mirror image of Oblivion.

The roller coaster is dubbed after the amount of G-forces it creates when it goes through the drop hole. Like Insane Speed, Diving Machine G5 is not themed to anything. Along with the Ku Ku Roller Coaster, and Insane Speed, Diving Machine G5 is one of the three roller coasters at the park. Diving Machine G5 is the closest ride to the entrance, thus it has long lines in the morning and short waits in the afternoons and nights.

Ride experience

Diving Machine G5 starts right out of the station and engages the lift chain which slowly takes them up the 45-degree angle lift hill to a dizzying height. The train then makes a turn to the right and brakes violently. Riders then here a small click and slow down as they engage the holding brake and stop right on the edge. After the car completely stops, three seconds pass before the car is released down the vertical drop and under a bridge into the tunnel, where riders experience a blast of air and 5 G-forces. After exiting the tunnel, riders traverse a massive overbanked turn to the right, drop slightly, then are treated to a burst of airtime as they dip and rise into the final brake run, just as the camera flash goes off.
