Kraken Unleashed is a steel floorless virtual reality roller coaster located at SeaWorld Orlando in Orlando, Florida, USA. The ride is the second tallest roller coaster in any SeaWorld park. Kraken Unleashed is themed around a mythological sea monster with the same name.
In summer 2017, virtual reality headsets were added to Kraken. It sees experience a deep-sea mission alongside the Kraken beast. Similarly to Galactica at Alton Towers, the VR system was built into the coaster train to increase throughputs. SeaWorld also redesigned Kraken's station to help with throughputs. On April 13, 2017, SeaWorld announced that Kraken would be renamed to Kraken Unleashed and that the new VR experience would open on June 16. This refurbishment also saw the "Kraken" at the ride entrance changed from an eel to a more squid-like creature.
