G-Force Five! is about danger and excitement. A g-force is the feeling of something pushing or pulling against you when you’re going very fast, like in a tight turn in a car or a roller coaster. The “g” in g-force stands for “gravity”.  So G-Force Five (or 5 Gs) would be 5 times the normal force of gravity.  Here’s what it looks like to experience 1, 3, and 5 Gs:

1 man, 5 Gs
