MY VERDICT

Dæmonen was good because it felt a little bit like Air (see below), which is one of my favourite rollercoasters. I didn’t like the duration – it wasn’t long enough and it was over too quickly. I did like the inversions – an Immelman loop, a vertical loop and a zero-G roll.

MY VERDICT

This is NOT a rollercoaster, it’s a freefall tower or ‘giant drop’ ride. You can see the top from miles away and when you drop, it makes your dangly bits feel funny!!!!!! My mum thought it was the most terrifying ride in the themepark but I really liked it!
