Buena Park might be the place to be for thrill seekers this weekend when Knott’s unveils California’s steepest roller coaster.

Known as HangTime, the coaster will send riders up a vertical lift hill into a 96-degree drop.

En route to a 15-story drop, the coaster’s train will come to a halt once the highest peak is reached, and will leave riders suspended at the crest for several seconds at a 60-degree angle, giving the illusion of a disappearing track.

“The coaster continues Knott’s legacy in rollercoaster innovation and industry firsts; the park introduced the very first corkscrew inversion rollercoaster with Corkscrew, and the first flywheel launch coaster with Montezooma’s Revenge,” park officials said in a statement.
