Mindbender: How many Gs?

According to this website, http://www.coaster-network.com/bm/intamin/mind.htm , Mindbender pulls 5.9 Gs. Is this true?

Maybe you can ask the park. They might know.

That sounds like an awful lot of G's for it to be pulling. I can't remember it pulling that many for a long period of time if it does.

5.9 g's seems like simply too much in this day-and-age of taming coasters.

Remember that Schwartzkopf designed it, and he is notorious for High-G rides due to his hesitance to utilize CAD. I think it's plausible.

I think we should remember that it was a Schwarzkopf designed coaster... It does pull abotu 6 G's. Think thats a lot? Texas Tornado at SFAW pulls 6.5 G's.

Quite intense I must say.

The Mindbender is probably one of the greatest steel rides I've been on. You do pull TONS of G's, especially around the 3rd loop. And don't worry, what it lacks in height, it makes up for in insane drops. This is one awesome coaster!
