Demon

It’s official. Coming in 2014, La Ronde will introduce a high-flying inverted experience: a brand new swinging, twisting, and spinning ride. The all-new Demon will feature impressive heights, heart-racing swings, unpredictable spins, stomach-tightening flips, and soaking water jets. This new attraction will provide an adrenaline rush like no other when it lifts riders up 40 meters in the air and flips them head-over-heels, swinging them side-to-side for a wild adventure. You won’t be able to tell which way is up in this giant gondola.

You’ll take a seat with 31 other bold riders and load back-to-back into the giant gondola structure. The two metal arms holding you up can rotate, pivot, swing, and move randomly. You’ll first complete several back and forth side-to-side swings. Then, rising up 14 meters, the flexible arms will rotate irregularly, causing the entire gondola to move, turn, and rock with unpredictable movement. The thrill ride plays on your anticipation as you wait for the next wild motion that will flip you entirely upside down in a gut-wrenching inverted hang, spin you around in a whirling rush, or toss you high and low. The giant arm will sway you and twist you until you can’t see straight. Demon offers inverted views of the park as you hang up in the air and twist upside down.

If that’s not enough excitement, you’ll also have to anticipate the sixteen water jets that spray up from the platform. These bursts of water will shoot out erratically to soak riders at random moments during the ride.

Are you ready to take on this all-new spinning ride?
