PointBuzz posts Demon Drop retrospect feature

Posted Wednesday, October 21, 2009 3:22 PM | Contributed by Jeff

Cedar Point fan site PointBuzz has posted a Demon Drop retrospect feature that includes PR photos from 1983, a behind the scenes walk around the ride, newspaper clippings and the classic TV commercial. It was recently leaked that the ride is being relocated to Knott's Berry Farm at the conclusion of this season.

Childhood is fleeting and adulthood is forever. But few kids see or understand that. Both my parents are still alive and are active for their ages (particularly my dad who runs circles around folks 1/2 his age). Its a lot of fun to me to watch my parents interact with my kids. Going to amusement parks and sporting events and biking and skiing and celebrating holidays, etc. with my parents and my kids is a lot of fun and very special to me.

All of you are so right. The good times you have as a child, with your parents seem like they will last forever. When you are older and more mature you realize your parents really are human and will not be around forever. If there was some way to make kids understand that they would appreciate what they have and it might change their whole perspective. With the recent passing of my mother, on 9/27/09, I have started to cherish my memories of her even more than I did before. Although she had been very sick since March, 06, and has had one health problem or another, most of her life, the reality of the situation does not hit you fully until the person is gone. I hate to sound cliche, but you really don't know what you've got, 'til it's gone. Before she got to her worst point, I never thought she would die at only 62 years old or that I would lose her when I was only 33.

My dad, who is 65, is still running circles around people half his age too. Just this month he got on 26 rides at SFMM and 33 at KBF. People at both parks were amazed to see him ride all the coasters. When the subject comes up, he has fun telling people on rides how old he is just to get their reaction. We have also been to two Angels games this month, due to some tickets we received as a gift. That is something we did regularly before he had to take care of mom too. I am thankful for the time we have been able to start spending together again.


My mother (1946-2009) once asked me why I go to Magic Mountain so much. I said I feel the most alive when I'm on a roller coaster.
2010 total visits: SFMM-9, KBF-2
2010 total ride laps: 437
