I'm glad I got to ride it this year. It was actually one of the best non-coaster rides at CP, and it never had a line, which was one of the best things about it. It will definitely be missed. This just leaves me wondering, what are they going to be able to put in its place? Demon Drop doesn't really have too large of a foot print.
Just keep swimming...

Good point, obviously the only ride that could fit in there would be a flat, but I think that the park may expand the game area near there or add a restaurant?

^ BAH!!! We've only gotten 4 resturants in the past 3 years.

A new arcade or game center would be nicer then more food. :butt:

I am greatly saddened by this news. Demon Drop was one of my to-do list things for whenever I go up to the Point. I'm gonna miss it next year, though I guess that frees up time for more re-rides on Blue Streak and Maverick :airtime: :airtimer:

I've been to Cedar Point twice and I've never ridden it. It's been at least 4 years they were talking about removing it and they finally do.

Just my luck. The year before I go to Cedar Point for the first time, they remove one of the rides I really wanted to try out. Murphy strikes again.

I wrote the book about donkeys!

There was some stuff on Screamscape awhile ago about removing Demon Drop, Disaster Transport, and taking out some of the employee parking and putting a GCI in there, maybe thats what they will do.

Disaster Transport isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

Three of the four were involving the idea of selling the ride, it failed so it's going to KBF. :roll:
