Demon Drop while at Cedar PointDemon Drop debuted at Cedar Point in 1983. It was very popular as it was located at the very front of the park. In 2005, rumors started of the ride being relocated or dismantled when the ride was put up for sale. On October 21, 2009, Cedar Point officials announced that Demon Drop would be moved to its sister park, Knott's Berry Farm, for the 2010 season. In November, fans of Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom spotted pieces similar to Demon Drop at its park in Pennsylvania. On December 2, 2009, it was announced that Demon Drop would not be relocated to Knott's Berry Farm. Instead, it would be relocated to Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom. It officially opened at Dorney Park on July 8, 2010.
Passengers board Demon Drop at ground level into a four-person car that moves horizontally to the base of the tower. Riders are secured with over the shoulder harnesses. The car then climbs to the top of the tower in six seconds. Once at the top, the car slowly inches forward into the drop area. Without warning, riders drop 60 feet in less than two seconds of true free-fall before experiencing the deceleration g-forces as the car enters a pull-out curve. A computerized braking system slowly stops the car, which then the car drops under the track to go back to the station.
