So this was briefly mentioned in a Blooloop interview with George Bryan, the park manager however the section of the article discussing G-force has been edited out/removed. Not sure if this was a move by the park or not but here is the interview anyway, it's a pretty good read.

Pressing on, the George Bryan interview mentioned how the park is currently selling G-force, though it doesn't mention anything about a potential buyer. It also stated how the area will be developed into a small water area with a family track ride.

So far the park hasn't officially released any statements yet however time will tell as to what Drayton Manor's plans are. Can I just say on an informal level, as a replacement for G-force, if this is true then I think this is :poop:. And I thought Alton Towers' Ripsaw had a bad replacement.

I’m thinking cause of this deal the park signed up with the Mellors group I would love to see the Runaway mine train that was at the American Adventure added in G forces spot. That was so much quicker and more fun than Alton Towers Mine train.

Wasn't that the mine train that interacted with Nightmare Niagara? If so, how big is it's footprint and how would they theme it to fit the area that Shockwave, Stormforce and Maelstrom and air race are in?

Yes but it was rebuild and used on the travelling circuit but with social distancing no travelling funfairs are operating atm.
They could add water features in the middle of the helix

Yesterday I noticed they covered up all the construction fences with blue tarps

Also I’m not 100% sure but cause I didn’t get the train to the Zoo(to big a queue) I went down to the Monkey Trail and I swear at the back of the Pirate adventure building I could see some Coaster carts in the shape of a wild mouse but didn’t see no track. I tried to take pics but it’s so overgrowth round there.

I think we might get a Fabbri spinning coaster then!

I find the top of accelerator is a good place to spot what's going on behind PA, it's been a bit busy recently over the summer so I've not been on it but I imagine the crowds will drop now.

It would be really good if they added a new family coaster there as they already have a good selection of flat rides across the park.
