    So most of the lift has been put in place:-

    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.

    And here's a full-length POV, courtesy of USA Today:

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/trav...ime-coaster-knotts-berry-farm-2018/882378001/

    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.

    Holding brakes are set quite high up on the track segment:-

    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.

    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.

    Out of interest, how much more track needs to be placed?

    Pretty much just the Corkscrew, banked turn and some of the cobra roll.
