Diving Machine G5 is a Bolliger & Mabillard Dive Coaster roller coaster located at Janfusun Fancyworld in Koo-Kung Hsiang, Yunelin, Taiwan. Opened in 2000, it was the second Dive Coaster to be built, after Oblivion at Alton Towers. It is located in the Sky Plaza section of the park.

Diving Machine G5 is the closest ride to the entrance, causing long lines in the morning and short waits in the afternoons and nights.



The ride is listed as "飛天潛艇 G5" on the Taiwanese version of the park's website. Translations of "Flying Submarine" and "Flying Heaven Boat" have been given for this. It was dubbed Diving Machine G5 after the amount of g-force it creates when travelling through the hole.


Ride experience

After leaving the station, the lift chain slowly takes riders up the 45° chain lift hill to a dizzying height. A turn to the left follows, before braking violently before the drop. Riders then hear a small click and slow down as they engage the holding brake and stop right on the edge of the drop. After the car completely stops, three seconds pass before the car is released down the near-vertical drop and under a bridge into the tunnel, where riders experience a blast of air and a maximum of 5 g. After exiting the tunnel, riders traverse a massive overbanked turn to the right, drop slightly, then experience a burst of airtime as they dip and rise into the final brake run, just as the camera flash goes off. The ride then turns to the left, and re-enters the station.


6 cars. Riders are arranged 8 across in 2 rows for a total of 16 riders per car.


This ride is a mirror image of Oblivion at Alton Towers, which was opened two years earlier.
