I herd it wasn't as bad as your spelling and grammar.
Or yours. It was a good ride to operate, I had a heap of fun doing it. "The Bus is now leaving for Heard Island" Edited by Bussy

really, why did you think it sucked? I thought it was fun, espicially when the asians went on it
Someones stereotyping.... Anyway, it was an OK ride, it was my first looper. I wasnt that special, but it was still fun.

I loved the Demon, too bad the park sucked when I went...my brother spent the whole time going "it was much better in 99...hanna barbera land was over there..this and that was there it use to be better". If I remember correctly it was my first steel roller coaster.

He edited it. Anyway to answer the question, IMO, Demon sucked.
Him editing his post has nothing to do with you mispelling on yours..which is what Bussy was pointing out.

lol thanks for sticking up for me guys :P Yeah it was my first steel looping coaster as well. I agree, the park wasn't that good when it lost it's contract with Hanna Barbera. But the last day it was open it really didn't suck at all and the atmosphere was great, if only they kept that up the park still may of been open to this day.

So I know this is a little bit off topic, but firstly, what was Australia's 1st coaster and was it steel or wood. (I'm guessing wood but you never know).

Oh God, the ignorance. The misspelled word would have made made sense if Mickey hadn't edited his post. Get over it.

Forgive and forget right? I thoght Scenic Railway wasn't a coaster but just a train they used for mining coal or whatever back then. Ok, what was the second one because IMO SR doesn't count?

Well dont know about you but I read the post after Mickey edited his post and both posts made sense however you're post saying that mickey edited his post had nothing to do with you miss spelling heard.

I am sure Bussy will be happy to tell you about some. I can recall quite vividly when the cable snapped while the train was going up the lift. (Infact I remember it happened twice) Getting stuck there (on lift 2) was fairly regular. Nothing particularly out of the ordinary at all. It got stuck once (back in about 97 or 98 my memory is getting bad) on the track between the teardrop & the boomerang. They had to get ladders to get everyone off the ride there. Bussy, I will let you take it up from here...

Thanks Wazza. As Wazza said Demon getting stuck on lift 2 or at the bottom of lift 2 was common. I remember the last cable snap on Demon very well. It was very luck that no one was hurt, including the operator. The funniest thng that happened not just on Demon but on all rides was someone spewing. It was even better on Demon because you could see exactly who was going to spew as the train pulled into the station and there was nothing you or the guest could do to stop them getting covered in it because 99% of the time they would still be locked in when it came out.

Calm down lisalila, I never told you to 'get over the topic', I told you to get over the spelling mistake. Just for you, I'll make the text nice and big so you can understand the situation. The spelling mistake was done on purpose for comedic effect. It did make sense before Mickey edited his post. Now can you please drop this? No one really cares that you didn't understand my post (including me). It's very petty, and I'm sure it's getting annoying for people who are just trying to read this thread.

Yeah seriously guys c'mon, it's the past, stop focusing on the past and concentrate on the present. About the cable snapping... WHAT THE! Wouldn't the cable flick back and hit operators and riders? Like you know when an elastic band snaps and comes back and flicks you. And what caused this to snap?
