Named after the legendary sea monster, Kraken, is a massive, mythological underwater beast that's unleashed from the depths of the sea to take SeaWorld guests on the ride of their lives – lifting them higher, dropping them longer and spiraling them faster than many roller coasters in Orlando.

Seated in floorless cars, your feet dangle free as you sit with nothing around you except the over-the-shoulder restraint. Kraken begins with a plunge from a height of 15-stories to reach a top speed of 65 miles-per-hour. The train will then turn upside down seven times, as it flies along more than 4,000 feet of steel track.
