Location: Buena Park, CA (USA)
Knott’s Berry Farm is continuing to build on a successful 2017 season which included the debut of an expansion to the Soak City waterpark and a new thrill ride Sol Spin. The park also introduced Ghost Town Alive which opened to many positive reviews. The upcoming 2018 season will put the park on the map as it looks to be the first of a kind for the West Coast. The park has announced that HangTime will debut for the 2018 season as the first dive coaster on the West Coast.
HangTime will take riders up a 90 degree angle lift hill before plummeting riders down a 96 degree first drop. The first drop will be the steepest drop on a roller coaster in California. The ride will feature five inversions and will halt riders 60 degrees before plummeting down the first drop. HangTime will reach speeds of 57 mph and will accommodate 960 riders per hour. The ride will feature a track length of 2,198 feet and a ride duration of 1 minute and 30 seconds.
HangTime will be located in the Boardwalk section of the park. The ride will come to life during nighttime hours as it will showcase colorful track chase lighting to accommodate the trains traveling through the track course. HangTime will debut as only the second roller coaster in the Western Hemisphere to feature a negative-g stall loop, a feature that will give riders the sensation of floating. HangTime will have a height of 150 feet and deliver when it debuts in 2018.
