The first Dive Coaster in California and upon opening also boasted of having the steepest drop in the state. Hang Time sprouted up on Knott's Berry Farm's Boardwalk on the plot previously occupied by Boomerang and the original modern looping coaster Corkscrew. This multielement coaster has a California surfing theme, a vertical lift hill, beyond vertical dive drop, and five gravity-defying inversions.

Riders seated in a four-car train ascend straight up the 150-foot vertical lift. Upon passing the lift's apex HangTime begins with a holding brake that suspends the train for a moment before allowing it to plunge over the edge on track that disappears from sight. The 2,189-foot layout includes five inverting elements and an amazing pop of airtime, that's rather rare in California.
