Knott’s Berry Farm just released the following animated POV of HangTime, their brand new dive coaster coming in 2018:

This video shows the new roller coaster in action by showcasing its gravity-defying inversions, mid-air suspension and twisting tracks. HangTime will send riders up a vertical lift hill into a 15-story 96-degree drop, the steepest drop in California. The coaster’s train will come to a halt and will leave riders suspended for several seconds before descending in a beyond-vertical drop, through 2,189 feet of track. HangTime will be the second rollercoaster in the Western Hemisphere to feature a negative g-stall loop, which gives riders the sensation of floating. The video also features a glimpse into HangTime’s colorful nighttime track chase lighting that will illuminate the Boardwalk area as the coaster’s train travels across the smooth steel track.

  • Height: 150 feet
  • Track Length: 2,189 feet
  • 5 inversions
  • Capacity: 3 trains with 16 single passenger carrying units each
  • Maximum velocity 57 mph
