Well time to start the guessing...



I think the signs all point to a rebuild of Windjammer.

Whatever it is, it will be surf-themed though!
Ideas?

Some have suggested an Intamin Surfrider or Half pipe, but I think that's taking that teaser way too literally.

I'm sticking with my original prediction of a beached themed Gerstlauer Infinity coaster.

It does make me imagine a heartline roll done in a wave tunnel - sounds exciting! :D

It'll keep me amused! 8-)

- I have to prove that NL1 is still alive! Pack-a-punch tracks are, I personally feel, a LOT of fun! :)
- IMO, the ride stats are not everything in most cases! Never rely on the big numbers showing how tall, fast or long!

Gerstlauer Infinity named Hangtime or Ledge, one of the two. Either that or something, anything by Intamin.

Knott’s Berry Farm will welcome HangTime, a brand new steel rollercoaster - and the only dive coaster on the West Coast - to the theme park during the 2018 summer season. HangTime will tower 150 feet over the Boardwalk area, showcasing gravity-defying inversions, mid-air suspensions and twisting dive tracks.

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.

HangTime’s ride structure itself will come to life and illuminate the Boardwalk area with colorful nighttime track chase lighting that will accompany the coaster train’s travels across the smooth steel track. The coaster continues Knott’s legacy in rollercoaster innovation and industry firsts; the park introduced the very first corkscrew inversion rollercoaster with Corkscrew, and the first flywheel launch coaster with Montezuma’s Revenge.

Guests can experience an entire season of fun including the thrill of HangTime with a 2018 Knott’s Season Pass, on sale now at the best price of the year. A Regular Season Pass includes unlimited admission in 2018 to Knott’s Berry Farm with no blackout dates, and a Gold Season Pass includes unlimited admission in 2018 to both Knott’s Berry Farm and the newly expanded Knott’s Soak City Waterpark with no blackout dates.

HangTime is manufactured by Gerstlauer Amusement Rides, GmbH, and is the company’s next- generation “infinity coaster” model.

HangTime Basic Stats:
• Height: 150 feet
• Track Length: 2,198 feet
• Capacity: 3 trains with 16 single passenger carrying units each
• Maximum velocity 57 mph

Ride Features
• 150-foot Vertical Lift
• 96-degree First Drop
• 5 Inversions
• Holding Break at 60 degrees- ride will hang guests looking down over the first drop before starting
• The Negative-G Stall Loop- only the 2nd roller coaster in the Western Hemisphere to have this feature offering unprecedented hang time
• Colorful nighttime track chase lighting that will accompany the coaster train as it travels across the track

It can be a little bit Knotty.
Any random childish insults I might have received for expressing an opinion about any particular franchise are fake news.

The only Gerstlauers that do the slow brake pre-drops are Mystery Mine and Takabisha, both of which have OTSRs. This slow brake pre-drop seems longer and steeper, and uses the lap bar Infinity train- with longer trains too. If these photos aren't deceiving us, that's going to be a fearsome element.

Actually looks great! Looks like the speed could be slow enough at the tops of the inversions to get some negative Gs -- guess it's called "HangTime" for a reason. I find it cool that the thing ends with a cobra roll; you don't see many rides ending with vertical-type inversions. Also I might be stating the obvious here but this thing looks like it could be the first half of a Smiler-like ride. (Quick someone make one in NL2!)

Boulder Dash is the only good roller coaster.

o man, this looks great. Seems to be pretty much negative g's the whole way through besides parts of the non-inverted type element, so stoked.


I'm excited to see Gerstlauer expanding into higher capacity rides recently, the Takabisha drop is a great solution and presents it's own awesomeness. I'm still hoping for a 60m+ 7 car train Gerstlauer some day haha!


Hopefully the longer trains will fix the high wind issue Monster has

This looks great. If it's 90% as good as Karacho I'll get more use out of my Knott's pass than I have in years.

This isn't quite what I was expecting, but other than being a bit short I'm pretty excited for the ride. Knott's is long overdue for a major roller coaster, and this is a perfect fit for the park and for the Boardwalk. I typically do 6-10 Knott's visits per year, but if this ride proves to be as good as it looks, I may wind up going 15+ times (my current record is 13 visits in 2013).

The only thing missing is a fat loop. This looks like the best US ride not built by RMC for 2018(never mind because this and Time Traveler is pretty much it.)
What are these for?

Cobra Roll into a perhaps final brake must be so cool that it'll leave us a feeling "Intense!" :D

Yep, plus if there's any semblence of Karnan on the laterals on that turn/hill thing this should be a great ride!
