Every time I got to a media shoot, I always check my email one last time before I leave the house. Just for this reason. Stuff gets canceled all the time with this type of thing. So, I went right back to bed! Haha.

Glad it worked out in the end.

Thanks to Theme Park Review, we were able to attend the HangTime Media Event at Knott's Berry Farm ahead of its grand opening today! This new coaster makes quite a splash, as it becomes the choice-wave in the Boardwalk area of the park. With the opening of HangTime, the Boardwalk area now feels complete.

The official TPR Media Event report will come soon from David and Brittney, but here a few teaser pictures from the totally tubular event!

Glad to be back at Knott's Berry Farm!

After a few laps on the surrounding rides, the crowd gathered for the opening ceremony.

The lighting completely transforms the look of the ride at night.

The coaster prepares to catch a wave as it makes its first drop!

After the ceremony, we went on the Sky Cabin to get a different view. Watching the lights chase with the train is so enjoyable!

Time to take our first ride!

Check back soon for the official report from David and Brittney! Congratulations to Knott's Berry Farm on brining the first dive coaster to the West Coast, and thank you for inviting us to join you for this wonderful event! Here is to a great summer season at the farm!

I don't think I'll ever get tired of seeing pictures of Hangtime. Looks great. Really hoping to get back to Cali this year!

i went to the filming event today, and to be completely honest, it was just okay. it was very early, and most of the stuff i filmed got cut (they cropped the footage on FOX 11 so there were none of our interviews, which i missed out on accidentally, and only 2 of us ended up being on FOX 11 at all) however, the PR people were beyond accomdating and nice over the whole “its cancelled... oh wait it isn’t” and they were nice enough to give us breakfest. plus, i got to meet the people i saw on TV, and i believe the reverse POV of us TPRers will be posted which will be cool. so overall, it was tiring, but i did have fun, i’ll upload some pics later

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

that's cool. the one video on the website with the reporter riding is framed to just two people in the front. seems like most of the train was empty?

First I want to send BIG THANK YOU to Eric from Knott's Marketing Dept. He made is possible for us to ride with FOX11 News.

Had a great time with my fellow TRP members. it's nice to put screen names to faces. Once in the park it was a little slow and didnt know if we would get to ride. After several minutes of testing we were ready for the first ride with the news crew. The reporter and camera man are not coaster fans, so it made even more fun to hear the screaming through out ride. After 30 minutes Knott's set up a breakfast for all. Bacon burrito was really good and filling. It wasn't long after that we got back on and was fearful of possible protein spills. All was good and everyone's food remained in their bellies.

Hangtime is GREAT! Knott's has a winner on their hands. The back row is the best! When the train is sitting at the holding brake pending release. The back whips over and you experience serious ejector time. The rest of the ride is fun and has you smiling and laughing through out it.

I can't wait to see the reverse POV of us. I was told they used a portion of it on the news along with our interviews. would love to do more stuff like this for TPR.

Thank You Knott's Crew

I'm glad you got to go. I was thinking not only would driving from Ventura suck for VCXfreak, paying for a room and not getting in would be a bummer for you, too.

who was the guy with the big beard sitting next to Matt Johnson? anyone here?
