Remember the monster under your bed? Well, it grew up! Kraken®, the monster of all roller coasters, is the tallest, fastest, longest and only floorless roller coaster in Orlando.
It will take you to the heights of a 15-story building & turn you upside down seven times, all at speeds reaching 65 mph! Named after a legendary sea monster, Kraken®is a massive, mythological underwater beast that's unleashed from the depths of the sea to take SeaWorld® Orlando guests on the ride of their lives, lifting them higher, dropping them longer & spiraling them faster than any other coaster in Orlando.
Riders' feet dangle as they sit on open-air, pedestal-like seats with nothing around them except shoulder restraints. There's no one to hold on to, nothing in front of them & nothing below them, only sky above.
Kraken® is very popular, but it also loads very quickly. So even on busy days, the line is tolerable. To make sure your wait is minimal however, go right after you ride Manta® within the first hour the park is open. You can’t bring anything with you on the ride, so unless you have non-riders in the group who can hold your things, you must store them in the pay lockers adjacent to the coaster.
It’s a toss-up which is the better coaster…Tad loves Manta®, but Leap’s vote goes to Kraken®. Since Lily is still too small to ride, she and Mommy Frog wait with the bags while the boys go.
Kraken® is an outdoor roller coaster at SeaWorld® Orlando. The duration of the ride is about 3 minutes. Each row of the coaster seats four guests. Each seat has a pull-down shoulder restraint. Guests must be at least 54 inches to ride. Guests using wheelchairs should inform a Team Member at the entrance. He/she will be directed to enter through the exit located to the far left of the entrance and then up the exit ramp to the station. Guests must transfer from wheelchairs into the ride vehicle.
