Kraken Unleashed is Now Open at SeaWorld Orlando

New virtual reality experience!

The wait is over! SeaWorld’s first ever virtual reality roller coaster is now open…

The Kraken has been one of the most popular roller coasters at SeaWorld Orlando for over 17 years now, but after receiving an amazing makeover, it’s just got a whole lot better! Last year, SeaWorld revealed plans to enhance the fan favourite, by adding an exciting virtual reality element, and today the new and improved Kraken Unleashed was finally unveiled.

If you’ve been on the Kraken before, you’ll know that it’s a pretty terrifying roller coaster. It is Orlando’s only floorless coaster, and it sends riders racing around the track at speeds of 65mph, reaching heights of more than 150-feet! If you’re a fan of the Kraken, you’ll be pleased to know that the most thrilling moments and stomach-churning drops remain, they’ve just been enhanced with state-of-the-art virtual reality technology. If you’re brave enough, try the all-new Kraken Unleashed Virtual Reality Experience, and prepare for an adventure that’s much scarier than before!

Each seat will have a virtual reality headset that will transport you to the depths of the ocean. Get ready for an action-packed underwater mission as you climb onboard a submarine and race through the water. There’s plenty of surprises in store, like a murky kelp forest and a bubbling lava field! If you didn’t already know, the Kraken coaster is inspired by the mythical sea serpent that lurks in the darkness at the bottom of the ocean. Make sure you keep a look out, as it’s only a matter of time before you come face to face with the mighty beast!

The addition of virtual reality headsets will make this ride even better (and much scarier!) than before, immersing you in the action. If the thought of the Kraken without the VR sounded scary enough, don’t worry! You’ll be able to choose whether you want to wear a VR headset or not.

We’d definitely recommend that you give it a go, as it adds an exciting new dimension to the ride, that we’re sure you’ll love. It’s also the first roller coaster in Orlando to permanently use VR technology and SeaWorld’s first ever virtual reality coaster, so make the most of the opportunity to experience a piece of theme park history.
