This summer Knott’s Berry Farm welcomes HangTime, the first and only dive coaster in California. The brand new coaster towers 150 feet over the Boardwalk area of California’s favorite theme park, showcasing gravity defying inversions, mid-air suspensions and a beyond vertical drop – the steepest in California. Earlier this month I had the opportunity to attend the HangTime grand opening celebration at Knott’s with family and friends.
HangTime takes riders up 150 feet, through 5 inversions, running at speeds of up to 57 mph. It’s a exhilarating ride that’s sure to thrill both children and adults. My son and his friend were some of the first people to get in line to ride the coaster. In fact, they there were #16 and #17! The normal wait time to get on the coaster is approximately an hour.
Knott’s pulled out all the stops for the premier of HangTime. They were gracious in their hospitality with festive food and drink stations around the Boardwalk and provided live hulla hoop demonstrations for visitors.
My friends and I enjoyed eating summer time classics like hotdogs and french fries at Johnny Rockets, while watching the beautiful fountain in Charleston Circle radiate across the night sky.
