The demon at six flags great America an arrow dynamics loopscrew with a retro theme from the 70s has a lot of charm through it's 34 year history. The demon according to many Other critics is one of the smoothest arrow dynamics loopers why that is so is unknown. The ride operates three trains on very busy days only similar to corkscrew at cedar point. The demon begins with a dip throughout a tunnel and onto the lift hill, once at the crest the train dips down into a banked turn 180 degrees.Straight ing out the train dives down the first drop into sOme straight track before the near back to back loops which are surrounded by awesome looking rock formations, with a rock archway threading the second loop. After the two loops the demon goes through a lengthy tunnel lined with tracer lights giving A great retro feel again. Emerging from the tunnel the demon goes up an incline onto the MCBR where it is slowed dramatically after slowly rolling around a turn the train drops right through the tunnel rock formation with a waterfall into the corkscrews actually crossing the train tracks. After the corkscrew the demon goes through a helix up into the long final break run back into the station, overall the demons a great nostalgia trip and a great first time looper and never has a line longer than thirty minutes a must ride

Always a short line. Don't miss the infamous "gum wall", which has been less glorious as fewer people ride year after year. Somehow a corporate sponsor was given permission to convert a train, which is annoying. The caves are less intimidating than they used to be, since mosts light bulbs are out, smoke is thin and the sound is usually off. The loops are enjoyable, but this can sometimes hurt your head. Make sure to keep your eyes open so your body can follow the motion, otherwise you'll get slammed around unexpectedly, especially near the corkscrew. Sometimes you can stay on the ride, since it's grown so unpopular. It's also one of the original rides, called the "Turn of the Century" until 1980.

I detest this ride. It is nothing but a glorified version of Cedar Point's Corkscrew, with a bit of scenery and one extra loop. First of all, going over the top of the lift, you'll worry about the coaster just falling apart. Then you hit the drop. I'll give them that the first drop is nice. It feels like you are completely vertical. That's when this ride gets truly evil. Jolting around going up the first loop, you get whiplash like there's no tomorrow. There's even a sign in the station telling you to keep your head pressed firmly against the back of the seat. It feels like your head is going to snap right off. Nothing complements one terrible loop like another terrible loop. Right after the first loop, you curve right up into a second loop over a rock structure, this time going even faster. Once again, you feel like your head is going to wave your shoulders goodbye as it leaves the car. After that, this ride is OK, there is a cool surprise inside one of the tunnels, and the corkscrews are fun. It's mainly the loops that make this roller coaster terrible.

I was amazed the first time I rode this thing with the amount of airtime on the first drop. I popped right out of my seat!

This coaster was one of my favorites when I visited the park. The theming to it is great especially at night with the lights on. It is a steel coaster with 4 inversions. It was built by Arrow in 1976 and remodeled in 1980. It is 95 feet tall, has a 82 foot drop, and is 2,300 feet long. It has two trains and seven 4 seat cars. Like its California cousin, this ride was built as The Turn Of The Century and later added two vertical loops and rocky theming to create a four inversion coaster. The two loops took the place of two camelback hills. This ride is fun, rerideable, nicely themed, has a large capacity, and long ride duration.

Spectactular ride, with some amazing corkscrews! I love it! I even think the sign outside of it is cool-looking. Its been a few years since I rode it last, so I am overdue to head back to Chicago.

An older ride, but still pretty good. Sitting in the back of the train is fun. You actually get lifted out of your seat, if yer small enough. A good ride at night, because of the lights in the tunnel. A little jerky at points, but not to bad for being as old as it is. The line is usually short, so a good ride if other lines are long.

I found this ride to be quite fun! Its not 2 thrilling but can be found thrilling 2 those (not exactly kids) that are moderate thrill seekers.

It is a fun coaster! We rode it 6 times in a row. Riding it at night is a whole different ride, the "Demon mouth and eyes" are lit up, during the day you cant tell what it is. It is a fun coaster, with not a long line!

A pretty average Arrow looper in my mind. I found the pre-brakerun part to be pretty good, the tunnel through the plaster mountain and the pair of vertical loops were very good. However, the train practically came to a stop on the brake, resulting in an ever-so-slow turn to the left into the corkscrews which, as usual, were the roughest part of the ride. Without the slam, it could be one of the best Arrow loopers, but the 2nd half is painfully slow.
