    Inversions Nice surprise! Intensity Reliability

    The completely vertical lift and beyond-vertical first drop really caught my by surprise. From there its a frantic whirlwind of tight turns and inversions. Not for the faint-of-heart. Best ride in the park for me.

    No matter where you sit the airtime on the drop is great.

    Inversions Comfort Pace Too short Intensity

    smooth gertslauer infinity. good inversions and it does not slow down till the brakes, only cons is that its short and that the pullouts at some points are pretty sharp, but overall very good. wish the first drop was just normal instead of having to take a quarter to stop for marketing.

    Inversions Pace Too short

    This was down when I went to Knotts in late 2021 so I had to do it on this trip. It’s really fun and that hanging over the drop gimmick is fucking awesome, but it is really brief.

    First Drop Fun Hangtime Too short

    Wow! One of the best coasters at knotts. Definitly up there with ghost rider. What can I say? layout is great, first drop is always great! The only problem would be the lengh of the ride but then again, knotts didnt have alot of room for this ride. One more thing, the lifthill. Awesome! I always put my arms up on the lifthill to dangle around. It almost feels like your about to fall out. I love it.

    First Drop Fun Too short

    This is a really good ride, the drop is fantastic. Only issue I have is that it is a bit short. But, Knott's had a small footprint to work with, and considering what was there before I think this is about as well as they could have done there. If you count the vertical lift hill as an element (it is literally more exciting then some coasters - I'm looking at you Jaguar!) then the duration is okay. Overall I would recommend this ride if you ever get out to Knott's.

    Lap Bar Inversions Hangtime Too short

    This ride (as the name says) has LOADS OF HANGTIME! The INVERSIONS ARE VERY FUN! I LOVE THE LAPBAR and it has a surprising amount of airtime! But it is a bit TOO SHORT.

    First Drop Inversions Ejectors Rattle Too short Capacity

    Awesome Gerstlauer Infinity coaster has some great moments of ejector, specifically the double down and the first drop. All five inversions are very enjoyable, and the lap bars are freeing and comfortable. My main two issues with this coaster, however, are the rattle in both the valleys and the elements themselves, as well as the ride’s duration, or lack thereof. Even then, this is a great ride that a helpful additions to Knott’s Lineup.

    First Drop Inversions Hangtime

    This ride was fantastic. The best and most intense part of the ride is right at the beginning. The lift hill going straight up with decent height is something I've never experienced before and my nerves were super high before the first drop. I never got to ride in the very back or very front but on both rides I had included a very impressive first drop. I think they made the right decision by not only having you hang at a downward angle for an extended period of time but then slowly drop into the near vertical drop which just brings the intensity up high. I also thought the inversions throughout the ride were well-placed and kept the ride fun. The intensity definitely goes down after the first drop and inversion just based on the pacing and high looping aspect but it's still very fun throughout. There was also a quick drop near the end that caught me by surprise and I felt some extra forces. 4/5 stars

    Airtimes Intensity Hangtime Rattle Discomfort Lap Bar

    My recent rides on Hangtime have been very good. The pros out-way the cons for sure and even then, the cons are so small that they didn't affect my ranking that much, but I thought I'd may as well give them a mention. The lap bars definitely caused the most pain for me. These lap bars tighten so hard that the double down airtime moment was totally ruined for me. There isn't really a rattle but that was the closest thing I could find to shakiness. On the corkscrew, the ride just kind of grinds on you but after that the ride is smooth again. Now the first drop is outstanding, I don't really enjoy the "hang" as much as I used too, but I wouldn't say it ruined the drop. The positives g's in these valleys were really good surprisingly, the negative-g-stall loop also pulled a really quick pop of hangtime which I didn't expect. The rest of the ride was basically as forceless as I could remember but it was very fun going through all the inversions, especially the cobra roll. However, going into the brake run was my favorite part of the ride, you get this nice pop of floater which is really satisfying and isn't as painful as being yanked into your bulky lap bar during the double down. Definitely check out this ride if you visit Knott's and be sure to ride near the front, those were my best rides.

    It was a great ride, great airtime on the first drop and great ejector airtime on the drop before the cobra roll, very smooth too, just too short.

    First Drop Inversions Fun Dead spots

    Great first drop, although I think it would be even better without the "hang time" before the drop. Layout is fun with some good inversions and some airtime, but there really isn't any hang time after the first drop. Don't be like me and leave your cell phone in your front pants pocket. The lap bar was not forgiving. The final picture from that crushed phone is posted here.

    First Drop Lap Bar Inversions

    That first drop was amazing. It provides great ejector and you feel like you’re getting punched in the stomach by Mike Tyson, and it feels amazing. The Negative-G Stall Loop was fun, and the Immelman right after was also great, providing, ironically, the only real moment of hangtime in the entire ride.The Corkscrew and Cutback right after was kinda forgettable. The airtime hill after provided amazing ejector, and I probably wouldn’t have noticed the Cobra Roll unless it was pointed out to me. The ride has a great setting, I love that area. And at night, Hangtime looks beautiful with its light package.

    First Drop Fun Hangtime Too short Theming

    Honestly, I had some expectations for this ride, but thought it was just gonna be an above average roller coaster. Hangtime exceeded my expectations. The first drop was spectacular and the inversions were solid, there is also an intense airtime hill in the middle of the ride. Unfortunately the coaster is too short and doesn’t have much theming. But definitely a great ride for sure.

    Airtimes Inversions

    Excellent forceful airtime filled drop which delivers an excellent gut punch, the next few inversions are smooth and graceful, translating to a forceless ride, albiet in an excellent setting. The small dip providing a break from inversions, unless you have miraculously managed to remain unstapled, will feel like nothing... however, in select conditions, and only in the back row based on my experience, the rest of the ride manages to be forceful, both whipping you pining you to the seat with force, not long but excellent nonetheless. I have warmed up to this coaster just as it has seemed to have warmed up during its cycles, the ride experience this time around was surprising, and cements Hangtime in the spot I thought it should've been in all along

    Ironically doesn't give much hang time. I wish there wasn't a holding brake on the first drop, but it is what it is. Definitely has a rattle most noticeable in rows 3 and 4.

    Airtimes Inversions Hangtime Rattle

    Hangtime is top-notch awesome. The lift is cool, the first drop is phenomenal, and all the inversions just come at you with force. It has the smoothness. Hangtime May have a rattle, but I don’t mind. I love Hangtime, and it’s a little overrated, but not too bad. Oh, and that neon slideshow in the night is amazing. Hangtime is number three, behind Xcelerator, and GhostRider. I think Gerstlauer did a great job with Hangtime at Knott’s.

    A little short but really fun. There's a little jolt during the Corkscrew but that's it. Hangtime, airtime, comfortable, smooth.

    We went here second right after Xcelerator. There was absolutely no one in line. I think we rode it 8 times in a row. I really like the straight up and the more than straight back down. All of the inverts work and the pacing keeps you scrambled up internally from beginning to end. It remains smooth throughout. Great compact coaster.

    Lap Bar Inversions Hangtime Too short

    This compact coaster packs quite a bit of punch. The first drop was an interesting experience, but I couldn't personally help but think how the ride might have more intense forces with that extra length from the drop. I will say that the “spaghetti bowl” style layout this coaster boasts has one of the best cobra rolls in terms of head choppers and slight disorientation. It’s a lot of fun but not the best at the park

    The first drop is amazing but the rest of the layout other than the airtime moment is pretty forgettable. Borderline 3.5/4 stars

    Lap Bar Inversions Hangtime Too short

    Hangtime is a great roller coaster for Knott's. One downside to the ride is that the ride is pretty short, however given how much space Knott's had to work with they came up with a great layout. While not the best the drop is still fun, and all of the inversions are great. Hangtime also gives a great night ride.

    Lap Bar Inversions Hangtime

    HangTime very good. I felt like the namesake drop didn't do much for me. I think that it would be cooler if I hadn't done a B&M Dive before. However, the inversions are spectacular, and give great hangtime. There's even a few powerful airtime moments. HangTime is a little on the short end, but not excessively so. I also don't like vertical lifts, which HangTime does. However, with a lap bar, a vertical lift becomes more tolerable. The lap bar also exacerbates the hangtime found on the inversions. HangTime isn't perfect, but it's pretty good.

    Theming Rattle Capacity Pointless

    I personally regard the first drop as trash. There is also 2-3 unusual rattle points during the rest of the ride. The lap bar can staple you onto the seat. On the other hand, this coaster is beautiful to look at especially in the night.

    First Drop Smoothness Hangtime

    Super smooth, and it has an almost ethereal floaty quality when you're going through all of the inversions, definitely worth the wait.
