The Only Dive Coaster on the West Coast to Debut at Knott's Berry Farm in 2018

BUENA PARK, Ca. - Knott's Berry Farm will welcome HangTime, a brand new steel rollercoaster  - and the only dive coaster on the West Coast - to the theme park in the 2018 summer season.  HangTime will tower 150 feet over the Boardwalk area, showcasing gravity-defying inversions, mid-air suspensions and twisting dive tracks.

HangTime will send riders up a vertical lift hill into a raised 96-degree drop - the steepest drop in California. The coaster's train will come to a halt once the highest peak is reached, and will leave riders suspended at the crest for several seconds at a 60-degree angle, giving the illusion of a disappearing track. Then the train will suddenly descend in a beyond-vertical drop, through 2,198 feet of steel track and five gravity-defying inversions. HangTime will be only the second rollercoaster in the Western Hemisphere to feature a negative-g stall loop, which gives riders the sensation of floating.
