Don't know who the meme was directed at but I'm absolutely going to criticize Hangtime if it has too much hangtime once I ride it! :lol:

It's not like that kind of hangtime is what the park was getting at when they named it. And after riding a few relatively forceful Gerstlauer loopers in Germany last year I was hoping Knott's would get one of their own. But even if not, it sure beats Boomerang!

:lol:
Don't get me wrong, I wasn't complaining - just making an observation. I love the lapbar-only hang time on YOLOcoaster and am really looking forward to a ride that focuses on that.

Well, they played on the words hang ten, but by naming it hangtime I don't know how anyone could reach a different conclusion. Hangtime isn't a surfing term....

The ride spends time hanging you over the first drop, hence “Hangtime.” That’s what the name is referring to.

^I do think that's the primary reason for the name, but the actual hangtime in the inversions probably play a part as well, IMO.

Trust me, I live in Huntington Beach where the US Open of Surfing is held every year so I know the terminology when I hear it. Yes, it's not a surf term (though I've never heard someone actually say "hang ten!" with any degree of seriousness either), but it does come across as the kind of thing some out of touch executive or marketing guy might think is a surfing term. I just feel assuming that CF deliberately named the ride after the speed at which it's supposed to traverse the inversions is giving them too much credit lol. I think Arthur_Seaton got it right.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Oh good lord, I think we all understand that the ride's pacing through the slow sections isn't why they called the ride Hangtime. It was a joke and personally I thought it was hilarious but let's not seriously spend time analyzing this. :lol:

I love donkeys more than me.
