The Demon Drop freefall ride at Cedar Point is to move to Knott's Berry Farm for the 2010 season.

Demon Drop is set to retain its current name and will replace the Screamin' Swing. It is due to begin installation on January 4, 2010 - suggesting it will be ready for the Spring. Cedar Point has not announced a replacement.

A first-generation Intamin Freefall attraction, Demon Drop has been at Cedar Point since 1983. Riders are carried up an elevator shaft four at a time, before being dropped downwards on a track. It is the only remaining first-generation Freefall ride in the United States.

A removal date has not been confirmed by Cedar Point but is likely to be in the next few weeks.
