Demon

A classic looping steel roller coaster

Description

Demon is an Arrow looping coaster originally opened with the park as Turn of the Century in 1976. In 1980, a demon repossessed the ride after the park missed payments for the ride (yep, that's the actual story), and two vertical loops as well as rockwork were added to the ride, making it one of the first coasters with 4 inversions. Strap yourself in for a historic, thrilling ride on Demon!

Intensity Guide

Demon Intensity

Demon gets a 3/5 intensity. Although Demon used to be one of the most intense rides in the park, Demon currently sits in the mid tier of Great America's rides. It does feature 4 inversions (2 loops and 2 corkscrews) which are somewhat intesne but isn't quite as intense as Flight Deck or Railblazer. If you're more than comfortable with Gold Striker and Grizzly but not ready for Patriot and willing to go upside down, then Demon is perfect for you!
