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.

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif -  Universal Studios Hollywood unites four slasher film legends—Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Leatherface and Chucky—in two all-new terrifying "Titans of Terror" experiences as part of this year's "Halloween Horror Nights" event which kicks off Friday, September 15, 2017.

In the new "Titans of Terror" maze, guests will fall victim to the silver screen's most deplorable killers whose affinity for bladed weapons redefined the horror movie genre as slasher films:  Leatherface (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) wielding his iconic chainsaw, Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th) brandishing his relentless machete, and Freddy Krueger (A Nightmare on Elm Street) swiping his trademark glove armed with razor blades.  The new maze will be an assault on guests' sensibilities as they descend into the forbidden realms of these horror icons.
