The ride opened at Six Flags Great Adventure in 1978. The attraction was originally identified as Close Encounters on the 1978 map and as Hodge Podge on the 1978 poster map, though the attraction was typically referred to as just Scrambler. The ride was renamed to Centrifuge "G" Force in 1993. The ride was removed after the 2001 season, although original plans were for it to reopen elsewhere within the park in 2002.
The ride reopened at Six Flags Over Georgia in 2004, where it was placed indoors and named Shake, Rattle, & Roll.
On August 29, 2019, Six Flags Over Georgia announced that they would be adding a flat ride package in 2020. There would be two new rides, which were Catwoman Whip and Poison Ivy Toxic Spin. It was also revealed that the park's Gotham City area would be remodeled.
