Rode Demon Drop many times AND on its' last operating day at CP. Its' 'sister' ride was 'Mr. Hydes Nasty Fall' at Geauga Lake. Rode that a few times. Demon Drop was very smooth compared to that one. I had heard that CP got that one to use for spare/replacement parts for Demon Drop.

You heard wrong, Mr. Hydes was cut up and scrapped. The drive, tires and some of the other parts were actually used to automate the transfer process on Raging Wolf Bob's.

Good ol’ Mr. Hyde’s... one of the few rides at a legitimate park that put the fear of God in me.
I had a chance over the years to ride many of those 1st gen Intamin rides, including the original at SFOT, and I can say with all certainty that Demon Drop was the smoothest. Mr. Hyde’s was probably the worst.
My brother always referred to Demon Drop as Elevator of DEATH!
I believe that specific model was at Great America in Gurnee,IL
