Diving Machine G5 is a Bolliger & Mabillard Dive Machine roller coaster located at Janfusun Fancyworld in Yunelin, Taiwan. It was the second Dive Coaster to be built, after Oblivion at Alton Towers. It is located in the Sky Plaza section of the park.

Diving Machine G5 is the closest ride to the entrance, causing long lines in the morning and short waits in the afternoons and nights.

NameEdit

The ride is listed as "飛天潛艇 G5" on the Taiwanese version of the park's website. Translations of "Flying Submarine" and "Flying Heaven Boat" have been given for this.[1]

The ride was dubbed Diving Machine G5 after the amount of g-force it creates when travelling through the hole.

Ride Experience Edit

After leaving the station, the lift chain slowly takes riders up the 45-degree lift hill to a dizzying height. A turn to the left follows, beofre braking violently before the drop. Riders then here a small click and slow down as they engage the holding brake and stop right on the edge of the drop. After the car completely stops, three seconds pass before the car is released down the near-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 experience a burst of airtime as they dip and rise into the final brake run, just as the camera flash goes off. The ride then turns to the left, and re-enters the station.

CloneEdit

This ride is a mirror image of Oblivion at Alton Towers, which was opened 2 years earlier.
