Best time to ride Demon

Post by PGA ROCKS » Thu Dec 22, 2005 2:25 pm

In your opinion, when is the best time to ride Demon? For me, it's hands down to ride it at night with the red and blue lights in the station. It will make your eyes tear while you go through the loops.

I have not had any differences between afternoon or morning (never been to the park after dark) so I think any time is the best time :)

I was wondering is the multimedia of the Demon in Gurnee or Santa Clara?
And did Santa Clara have a rock formation that also went through the second loop?
I was wondering because the rock face looks like Santa Clara but the rock formation around the loops looks like Gurnee...

Ok, I did some "research" and I noticed the Santa Demon had some extra pieces of metal in the top of the supports holding the Corkscrews like in the commercial:
(so I'm guessing the it was filmed in Sanat Clara)

Gurnee:

P.S. Neither the Santa Clara nor the Gurnee Turn of the Century this characteristic

If you look carefully towards the top of the loops from the Santa Clara picture there triangle pieces of sheet metal.
