Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Demon, a roller coaster at Six Flags Great America. (The minimum height to ride is 42 inches.)
Written by David Sell
Demon is a great "1st upside-down coaster" It goes into 3 tunnels throughout the ride, 2 loops, and 2 corkscrews. It still has great theming although some was taken out due to christian extremist complaints. The Demon has received new theming in 2007. Airbrushed flames on it's sign, new airbrushed logos on all 3 trains, and repainted signs in the queue. (The Demon can sometimes be headbanging in the corkscrews but there is a trick.

Ouch this whole design hurt. The harness was also awkwardly shaped and old and flaky almost unsafe. - Andrew Dougherty
Demon is pretty smooth when looking at other Arrow coasters out there. It is still one I ride whenever I go to Six Flags. Pretty good for younger kids who are up and coming. - Joey Till
Used to be one of the best rides that Six Flags had. However, as with many of the dated coasters still in operation, time has really taken it's toll. The ride is very harsh on the head and neck. The beating the upper body takes on this ride really takes the enjoyment out of the whole experience. It's not unsafe, just very intolerable at this point. - Pat DeVorse
Demon is too rough, IMO. Definitely not on my "favorites" list. - Trisha Levine
