G forces on Taz's Texas Tornado at SFAW

I have been on Taz's Texas Tornado at Astroworld and have a hard time believing the six "g" claim when going through the loops. Four g's, maybe!What do you think?

I believe it. Look at the loops then feel it. It's not 6 by the way, it's 6.5. Its just that their only there for a milisecond and you may not notice them that much.

I have seen reports in magazines that claim that it pulls 6.5. My Dad said it felt like it. I didn't ride it when we visited.

It justs pulls it in the first loop. The rest are probably around 4.5.

It's simple, the loops on Tornado are circular, and not elliptical .. it feels every bit of 6 1/2 g's.
