Hangtime Passholder Preview and POV

Knotts Berry Farm Opens Hangtime to Passholders!

Hangtime at Knotts Berry Farm is now open to season pass holders! Just show your pass at the entrance of the ride to join the fun!
POV from YouTube user LouB747

Hangtime opens to the public next weekend and is the first dive coaster on the West Coast.  "The ride sends riders up a vertical lift hill into a 96-degree drop. The coaster’s train comes to a halt once the highest peak is reached, and leaves riders suspended at the crest for several seconds at a 60-degree angle, giving the illusion of a disappearing track. Then the train suddenly descends in a beyond-vertical drop, through 2,189 feet of steel track and five gravity-defying inversions. HangTime is only the second rollercoaster in the Western Hemisphere to feature a negative-g stall loop, which gives riders the sensation of floating." -Knotts

The gift store is full of surf-shop decor and goodies.

The Pretzel Loop features some great Hangtime.

The queue is underneath the ride, giving a great view to people waiting in line.
