 Review of Demon @ Knotts Great America

Demon was the sleeper hit during my visit to Great America. I thought it would be just your standard Arrow drop, loop, corkscrew coaster. In a way it was, but somehow it was made into so much more than that, at least in my mind. You pull out of the station and travel through a tunnel before reaching the lift hill. There are demonic noises heckling you in the tunnel, and then you go up the lift. The lift hill was noticeably very steep, and you peek out from above the trees at the top. This entire ride is pretty much surrounded by trees, so its a really nice setting. The train rounds the curve, goes down the drop, and then through the two vertical loops. This was all pretty familiar, but I love drops and vertical loops, so no complaints here. We then went through another very long tunnel. I dont know why it was so disorienting, as it was completely straight and level track inside the tunnel. I think its that the momentum was carrying us through this very quickly, there was weird lighting, and I was honestly expecting some hills or curves or something. At any rate, it was a very unexpected and unusual addition to this ride. We then exited, rounded another curve, and dropped through a rock that had evil eyes and a mouth cut out of it. Our train traveled right through the mouth, which led to a close encounter with a waterfall and the two corkscrew loops. A rather slow spiral ended the ride. Maybe I am just way too easily entertained, but Im glad I am, as I really liked this one. One last side note--does the coaster from Final Destination 3 remind anyone else of this ride? An Arrow looping coaster with a demon theme? I couldnt help but think of that.
