Demon Drop Ride: Dorney Park's Drop Tower

Park: 11 AM - 7 PM | Waterpark: 11 AM - 6 PM | View Hours
Demon Drop

Want to know what it’s like to be suspended atop a 10-story building? This elevator-style drop ride dangles you for what seems like an eternity until you plummet – without warning – down 60 feet in about two seconds of true free-fall before experiencing the deceleration g-forces as you enter a pull-out curve and end lying down. 

  • Opened July 8th, 2010
  • Passengers board Demon Drop at ground level into a four-person car that moves horizontally to the base of the tower. The car then climbs to the top of the tower in only six seconds!
  • Once at the top, the car slowly inches forward into the drop area.
  • A computerized run-out braking system slowly stops the car, which is then returned under the track for the next daring passengers.
  • Demon Drop was originally located at Cedar Point in Ohio.
  • Height: 131 feet
  • Vertical Drop: 60 feet
  • Freefall: 2.5 seconds
  • Total Descent: 99 feet

Guests must be 48" tall to ride
