So most of the lift has been put in place:-
Bottom of the first drop:-
This coaster looks taller than what I expected. In terms of stats, it is the second tallest Gerstlauer coaster ever built (after Kärnan).
It's flying up now! I bet they put all the track and structure up by Christmas.
That looks huge.

And here's a full-length POV, courtesy of USA Today:
Looks like it packs a punch! Some really creative elements and even a bit of airtime - should make a really nice addition to the boardwalk area (especially if it's got that neat lighting package)
Also, from a slightly nerdy perspective, it's strange to see a cobra roll so late in the layout! The animation's possibly a bit optimistic about Sky Cabin and Xcelerator being open...
The drop looks fab but the layout reminds me of The Smiler where they tried to cram in as many inversions as possible...
The colour works so well next to Xcelerator.
Found on TPR:-
Holding brakes are set quite high up on the track segment:-
Nice night-time shot:-
Just one more section of lift track to put in place. The piece is on site, and should be put in place in the night.
I have to say that this looks really photogenic!
The ride's now topped off!
The lift is finished!
That woman though...
Hate how massive the holding break looks, however the colors will be lovely for about 6 months.

Is this the same as the colours on Kraken at SeaWorld Orlando looked when that ride was erected? If they are, then to imagine what HangTime's will look like in 17 years' time, just look at a picture of Kraken.
Kraken gets repainted occasionally, and most certainly more frequently than a ride at Knott's.
Wow the lights look amazing! Hopefully it ends up looking like this irl!
Out of interest, how much more track needs to be placed?
Pretty much just the Corkscrew, banked turn and some of the cobra roll.
This is really flying along in terms of progress!
