New for 2017, DEMON: RE-IGNITED! returns the lights, fog, music and blood-red waterfall to the iconic Demon roller coaster.

I never rode it with these effects before, but this is great news for Haunt!

OMFG I'm there! Just the "welcome to the demon" coming back would be amazing, but I've never ridden it with the fog or blood fall either!
Cedar Fair really is doing everything right with this park, I'm really excited for the next 5-10 years here.
Favorite Steel: Green Lantern First Flight (SFMM) - I know, I'm crazy. I love the unpredictability of it.
Favorite Wood: Ghost Rider (KBF) - since the refurb it is amazing!
Most Wanted: Starry Sky Scraper, El Toro, I305, Batman (SFFT), Eejanaika, Dinoconda, Insane, Outlaw Run

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Agreed. This park is on the way up!

This talk of Demon reminded me of the cheesy-A$$ Scooby-Doo sounding music that plays in the SFGAm Demon's queue. Does the CGA Demon have a similar soundtrack?

I'm in the same boat too! This is pretty interesting. I kinda hope they also do this during the day (I'm personally not much of a Haunt person). Also, with the area being retooled for Railblazer, it would be cool to bring back some of the rock work. I kinda doubt that would happen, but it would be interesting to see.

I'm going to have to drive for my next trip to Knott's so I can stop at CGA on the way. I don't go to other parks very often as Knott's is my favorite. In fact the last time I went was after Gold Striker opened. But another new ride calls for another visit. See you in 2020 Railblazer.

I've been wondering when they would bring the lights back in the tunnels. It's safe to say, if they install new lights they will be left on for regular operations, at least I hope they are. They can get really creative with LED's now a days. It's been kinda sad to see its Six Flags twin operating with them, and ours without. If I was someone high up at CF, I wouldn't want our version to be known as the lesser version.
Tigga, please!

With people bringing up Grizzly's RMC conversation as a possibility, I'm not too sure if I'm "for" converting Grizzly. Last time I rode it, it wasn't bad. Albeit a bit boring. However, the kids enjoyed it quite a lot. It's a good ride for the family. If RMC would convert it, I'd hope they'd keep that in mind and make something a bit "less extreme".

Does anyone know who "Clayton" is, and what he is responsible for at the park? I read the CGA blog, and it has quotes from him about the Demon, but it says that he belongs to Cedar Fair. Is he behind the new launches of the park? I saw that he planned the "Red White and Brews" event. Just curious about his role with the new Great America is.

Here's an FFA filing that shows a proposed 240 ft ride where the Peanuts Pirates Huss Breakdance ride currently sits.

Filing: https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external/searchAction.jsp?action=displayOECase&oeCaseID=339845284&row=0

Map Location: https://www.google.com/maps/place/37%C2%B023'40.2%22N+121%C2%B058'16.1%22W/@37.3945,-121.9733277,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d37.3945!4d-121.971139?hl=en

Coaster or tower ride?? Wasn't the B&M Hyper (in the 20 year plan) proposed to be 240'?

^Looking around that area, I'd think a Starflyer would be a safer bet.
