|About the Ride Info Box|
G-Force is a BREAK DANCE ride by Huss Rides (a modern Scrambler-style spinny ride) located in the Main Street Arcade. It originally opened in 1997 in an outside location where the Scrambler now resides. It was moved in to the arcade in 2011 after that side of Main Street was rebuilt due to a fire.
NOTE: This is a ride that was relocated. The original G-Force location was replaced by Scrambler, yet G-Force is still there. To make Replaced and Replaced By work in the Info Box, we kinda need a separate page for each location (so it's more about the location than the "thing").
According to a newspaper article, this ride was selected by Mike Krantz, one of the sons of the park owners, as a birthday present. (Which newspaper? Date?)
