Can anyone give me a site for the record holders of the highest Positive G-Force. Wood and Steel

I have'nt heard of any sites that have record holders for g-force...it's not something people typically want to know...

I have tried looking before years ago and found nothing. I doubt there is such a site.

m-force 4 ever

I think most of the Schwarzkopf loopers pull upper 5 Gs if Im not mistaken so they may qualify.

I think Moosault Scramble may hold the higest G-forces for a steel coaster, with more than 6. And to think that Galaxyland's renowned G-machine the Mindbener only pulls 5 :wow:

Something Schwartzkopf had 6.7.

Moonsault had 6.2 G's.

Texas Tornado had 6.5. I'm pretty sure that was the record holder for steel coasters. I have no clue for wood coasters though.

The highest G's pulled on a roller coaster is between 5 and 6. I think the most might be that new X coaster in California. But, most coasters pull 3-4 G's for a nanosecond.

I know that is probably wrong, but I got it from here (http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2002/06/25/earlyshow/living/parenting/main513414.shtml)

You got that from the same news company that did this (http://www.rathergate.com/) though

I think to say that Anton is behind it is a safe bet....

Texas Tornado was 6.7
Mindbender Canada is 6.5
Moonsault was 6.2

^But RCDB says 5.2 for MB (http://rcdb.com/id193.htm)

Around 100 years ago, there was a particular coaster that had a small circular loops that pulled up to 12 g's. Of course it was famous for snapping people's necks.

As a side note g's are not equal to G's. G is the Universal Gravitational Constant. g is the coefficient in reference to earths gravitational field.

What kind of thread title was that? Whatever happened to "G record Holders?" I definitely think a Schwarzkopf would have the record for steel.

It's gotta be Schwarzkopf. I rode Texas Tornado a few years back and that's gotta be some of the best forces I've felt ever. Even his off-the-shelf rides like Scorpion at BGT or Viper at SF Astroworld pull serious weight.

I believe the current highest is Tower Of Terror (shaft of terror) at gold reef city. The Ride pulls 6.3G's but is currently SBNO due to work being done on it. Maybe to reduce the G's?

Anything Schwarzkopf is sweet, I've only been on three and they are definitely unique in how many G's they pull.

That's before they raped the ride after it had the accident. Rather sad how all of the crazy G rides have been nuetered, or in Moonsaults case are already gone,

Yeah when it opened it had a longer train and just lapbars (now it has 3 cars trains with lapbars and OTSRs) And I think the last car on the train faces backwards.
