What rides would you like to see get removed and why

Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.

Granted, it’s the only rite-of-passage inverting coaster that SFGAm has, so until park management figures out how to replace it, if they choose to, I guess we’re stuck with it.

What I hate about the Demon the most is the transition into the first corkscrew. Whoever designed that is a knuckle head. It looks like a mess up in a planet coaster coaster

I rode the original "Turn of The Century" back in 1976, and then "Demon" in 2015. Demon hurt in 2015, but I don't remember Turn of the Century being anything but the best rollercoaster I'd ever ridden (up to that point). It was fun with no pain. The conversion to Demon could have hurt the smoothness of the ride, or time may be taking its toll on Demon's superstructure (or mine, for that matter). The abrupt entry into the loops and corkscrew don't feel good. Smooth those out and I'd ride Demon again.

I’ll admit that I enjoy the heavy g forces between the drop and first inversion on Demon. The rest of the coaster, not so much.
