Small Knotts "Hangtime" Construction Update.

Hangtime goes Vertical. 

 Pictures have slowly been popping up around the web of the new construction at Knotts Berry Farm. The coaster has gone vertical with a number of supports as well as track at the beginning of the lift hill. 
The lift support structure is rising quickly, you can see track at the bottom right of the image. (@ParksAndCons)

Supports continue to rise, (11/7/2016) as workers do some rock landscaping around the pond to the left before park opening.
"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." -Knotts
