    A unique ride in the UK, as well as being an Intamin with box section track. Shame Drayton is ditching this iconic ride from its logo. Drayton Manor is worth visiting to ride Shockwave and Apocalypse both standing up.

      I was gonna say, that's an unconventional layout for a B&M, but makes sense if it is an Intamin.

    I think it's really underrated, probably doesn't help it was built the same year as Nemesis at Alton Towers and The Big One at the Pleasure Beach. Those two became household names in the UK, Shockwave not so much.

      @CoasterCheetah It's not really Intamin, Intamin was just the seller the ride was actually made by Giovanola. The people who founded B&M used to work for Giovanola and while working there they came up with the box track. 4 Intamin rides used the box track and they are: Flashback at SFMM, Batman the Escape at SFAW, Cobra at La Ronde, and Shockwave at Drayton Manor. Of these only Shockwave remains, Flashback got scrapped in 2007 after being SBNO since 2003, Batman the Escape got moved to Darien Lake after SFAW closed and sat there in a field for years until getting scrapped, and Cobra got scrapped in 2018 after being SBNO since 2016.

      Never had the opportunity to do G Force whilst it was around. I think now though the park is in good hands with The Looping Group, new area opening in a week or so with the UK's first Zamperla Nebulaz. Wouldn't surprise me to see a new thrill coaster go in in the next few years. I'd definitely class this park as more family though so I wouldn't expect anything insane.

      @Theme Park Review I’m a annual pass holder so I seen the highs and lows the park been thought over the past 10 years. But the new Adventure Cove area for last year and the new Viking area opening on Saturday it’s really looking good for the park with rumours of a big family coaster coming in 2024. I really hope they bring back the pirate Adventure as the building been nearly all stripped but the ride system and boats are still in the building.

      Shockwave at Great America was a sit down roller coaster with 7 inversions. This is a stand-up roller coaster with 4. "Shockwave" was a common name used by several parks for some reason, but the rides themselves are very different.

    Love all the complainers out there who say stand up coasters are rough, when ridden as instructed (HEAD BACK) solves all the head banging issues, making them plenty smooth. Video after video of little twits on KZclip bitching about rough rides, when if you ride almost any coaster as it should be, they are fine. In stead, you see them with their head leaned out bouncing from side to side in the restraints and then bitch about out how rough the ride was. Even the old Togo Stand-up Coasters were not rough if ridden the correct way, and they had AIRTIME, something 99% of these box track stand up coasters never seem to have.

      @Adam Smith Some of those guys might have worked on it, sure, but it's really not a B&M if you're looking for technical aspects of the ride. The design of this ride came from Stengel which does designs for many different ride companies including B&M and Intamin.

      @Alexander Jones It's kind of a B&M. They designed it when they used to work for Giovanola. Intamin was the broker who sold it hence why their name is on it.
