Knott's Berry Farm has announced they will have the only dive coaster on the west coast!
HangTime is a brand new steel roller coaster that will send riders up a vertical lift hill into a raised 96-degree drop.
Once it gets to its highest point, riders will be suspended for several seconds at a 60-degree angle, giving the illusion of a disappearing track.
The train suddenly drops in a beyond-vertical drop, through 2,198 feet of steel track and five gravity-defying inversions.
Vice president and general manager of Knott's Berry Farm Jon Storbeck says HangTime is a unique experience for park goers.
"HangTime's disappearing track creates a memorable illusion of the unknown as riders feel like they are hanging over a cliff, staring at the ground in nervous anticipation. People who crave that adrenaline rush will want to ride this coaster again and again. Introducing a coaster like HangTime firmly positions Knott's Berry Farm as a must see attraction among Southern California theme parks, and we look forward to welcoming our guests to this new experience."
HangTime is expected to open sometime in the Summer of 2018.
