November 16, 2017 – Take a virtual trip on HangTime, the first dive coaster on the West Coast, with the new POV HangTime video as it shows the new rollercoaster in action by showcasing its gravity-defying inversions, mid-air suspension and twisting tracks. The new rollercoaster will send riders up a vertical lift hill into a 15-story 96-degree drop, the steepest drop in California. The coaster’s train will come to a halt and will leave riders suspended for several seconds before descending in a beyond-vertical drop, through 2,189 feet of track. HangTime will be the second rollercoaster in the Western Hemisphere to feature a negative g-stall loop, which gives riders the sensation of floating. The video also features a glimpse into HangTime’s colorful nighttime track chase lighting that will illuminate the Boardwalk area as the coaster’s train travels across the smooth steel track.
