One thing I'm noticing that worries me a little is that it seems to ease the train off the holding break instead of the sudden release on B&M divers. Hopefully there's still airtime aplenty on it though. It also dawned on me that with this set of elements, Hangtime is almost a direct Gerstlauer equivalent to Fahrenheit at Hersheypark. And I think that's a good thing.

I'm fine with it running fast or slow. Running slow means the inversions have loads of hang time, and running fast means the double down will have great airtime and the cobra roll will have some great forces. Can't wait to ride it when I head back to SoCal in July.

I was thinking the same thing reading some of the comments. I was like... "Are people really complaining about hang time on a ride called "Hangtime?!"

People never stop amazing me! :roll:
Bigger is not always better.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

I don't think people really understand the concept of hang time on a coaster, especially here in California. I mean do we really have coasters in this state that focus on that feature?

I wrote the book about donkeys!
