Hey I am all for it. I had a bunch of good rides on Demon Drop on my last visit at the end of May. Looking for to catching some more for Boobuzz! Wander how much the upkeep is on those rides. Thinking pretty costly since some of the Six Flags took theirs out. I miss Freefall at Great Adventure.
I agree it's a good ride... but a couple unknown enthusiasts on some site whining and calling them aren't going to change any decisions if they already have them... They're business men, and if they have a reason for it to be up for sale, I highly doubt this would make them reconsider. Also, somehow I knew the first post would be about relocating *something* to Michigan's Adventure ;). ...Then again I already heard they are relocating Magic Mountain's Superman to Mi. Adv. as part of the inter-cedar-flags ride rotation program created just so everything somehow ends up at Michigan's Adventure... ;)
CoasterKid, give it up already. A low-viewership "petition" if thats what you want to call it, along with a shoddy FreeWebs site advertised as a .com (which might be more appealing if there actually was a SaveDemonDrop.com, rather than a FreeWebs site just showing a picture and text saying a fake .com).
If Cedar Fair has plans with it, it will go somewhere, if not, it will be scrapped. There is nothing you can do to save it from their plans. They make such plans for a reason, be it maintenance costs, operational costs, or overall worth of the ride.
Apparently CF does not think enough about the ride to move it north. I'd also say that considering it's been up for sale, along with GL's Mr. Hydes, for over 2 years and no one's purchased it, that no one really wants it anywhere.
Personally, I hated both those rides. The part where you roll back into the station always hurt when the cars would upright.
Maybe...Just Maybe...They do think enough of Michigan's Adventure to NOT move Demon Drop there especially if the reason they want to rid themselves of the ride is if it has become a maintenance nightmare and I suspect that is the case. While I will agree the ride is good....it might just be time to upgrade to new hardware.
