Demon is an Arrow Dynamics sit-down roller coaster located at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois, USA. On August 5, 2016, Six Flags announced that Demon would be one of two rides to receive a virtual reality upgrade for Fright Fest, the other being Kong at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. The ride will show a film called Rage of the Gargoyles and it is being billed as "the world's first fully immersive gaming experience".
Design[edit | edit source]
The ride leaves the station by entering a tunnel followed by the 103.7 foot tall lift hill, followed by a 90 foot tall first drop leading into the ride's first vertical loop. Shortly after is the second vertical loop followed by a tunnel filled with lights before entering the mid-course block brake section. The design continues with a drop into a double corkscrew, followed by a turn into the final brake run followed by the station.
History[edit | edit source]
Originally opened in 1976 as the Turn of the Century with two corkscrew loops. For the 1980 season, the two vertical loops were added, the track was painted black and given the "Demon" theme".
