History[edit | edit source]
The ride first opened as the Screamin' Demon at Kings Island in Kings Mills, Ohio, USA. Although not the first built, it was the first Arrow Dynamics Launched Loop to open to the public. It was later renamed Demon. At the end of the 1987 season, it was sold to Camden Park, where it operated from 1988 to 1999 as the Thunderbolt Express. After standing but not operating, the ride was taken down in November 2004.
Design[edit | edit source]
The ride had a single vertical loop located between two elevated platforms. Riders were launched forwards, through the loop and into the second platform. The train was then launched backwards, through the loop and back to the station.
