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.

Throughout the evening, we sipped on the new HangTime milkshake made with blue soft serve ice cream and a sugar cookie, now available at Coasters Diner, and savored on a few of the delicious beach cupcakes with little surfboards on them.  Aren’t they cute?!!

Knott’s Berry Farm HangTime

After finishing dinner and listening to the surf band, Ride the Tide, play a few numbers, it was time to get the real party started!  First, came a preview of the new Knott’s summer show to be featured at the Charles M. Schulz theater, Beach Blanket Beagle.  Of course, Snoopy was front and center!   Next, Knott’s Vice President and General Manager Jon Storbeck offered some opening remarks thanking everyone involved in the production of HangTime and sharing about Knott’s upcoming summer time offerings.

Immediately following his remarks, Knott’s lit up the night sky with a colorful array of fireworks.  HangTime officially took off down the aqua colored tracks with accents of additional lighting programmed for the new roller coaster.  Every few minutes, as the track changed color, the audience lit up with excitement.  There was a a sense of awe and wonder amongst the crowd.  By far, this is one of the best productions I have ever seen at Knott’s.
