Demon is a steel roller coaster located at California's Great America in Santa Clara, California, USA. The ride opened in 1976, along with its identical copy at Six Flags Great America, as "Turn of the Century". It was built by Arrow Dynamics

History[edit | edit source]

Turn Of The Century opened with the park. For the 1980 season, the coaster was repainted from white into black, lit tunnels were added and the airtime hills were replaced with two vertical loops.
