Knott’s Berry Farm welcomed their newest rollercoaster, HangTime, the only dive coaster on the West Coast to the theme park in May 2018. Just in time for the summer season, HangTime towers 150 feet over the Boardwalk area, showcasing gravity-defying inversions, mid-air suspensions and twisting dive tracks. HangTime sends riders up a vertical lift hill into a 15-story 96-degree drop (the steepest drop in California). The coaster’s train comes to a halt once the highest peak is reached, and will leave riders suspended at the crest for several seconds staring downward at a 60-degree angle, giving the illusion of a disappearing track. Then the train descend in a beyond-vertical drop, through 2,189 feet of steel track and five gravity-defying inversions. HangTime is only the second rollercoaster in the Western Hemisphere to feature a negative-g stall loop, which gives riders the sensation of floating. HangTime is manufactured by Gerstlauer Amusement Rides, GmbH, and is the company’s next generation “infinity coaster” model.
