Kraken is a steel floorless roller coaster located at SeaWorld Orlando in Orlando, Florida, USA. The ride is the second tallest roller coaster in any SeaWorld park. Kraken is themed around a mythological sea monster with the same name.

In summer 2017, virtual reality headsets will be added to Kraken. Riders will experience a deep-sea mission alongside the Kraken beast.[1] Similarly to Galactica at Alton Towers, the VR system will be built into the coaster train to increase throughputs. SeaWorld are also redesigning Kraken's station to help with throughputs.



In order to reduce the noise made by the roller coaster train, the tubular steel rails are filled with sand.


3 trains with 8 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 4 across in a single row for a total of 32 riders per train. A car from Kraken was on display in B&M's booth at IAAPA 1999.
