Kraken Unleashed Virtual Reality Experience Now Open!
The all-new Kraken is now open
After undergoing a huge transformation, SeaWorld’s popular Kraken ride has relaunched and it’s better than ever…

The wait is finally over, Kraken Unleashed Virtual Reality Experience is officially open at SeaWorld Orlando! If you’ve visited the park before, you’ll know that the Kraken is one of SeaWorld’s most popular (and most terrifying!) rides. Last year, SeaWorld announced plans to give the Kraken a huge makeover, enhancing the incredible attraction by adding virtual reality headsets. The new addition will transform the ride experience, making it more terrifying than ever, as guests come face to face with the mighty underwater beast!

The steel floorless coaster has a total of seven inversions, 2 vertical loops, a dive loop, a cobra roll and a zero-g roll! If that doesn't sound scary enough, it also features a 144-foot drop and reaches speeds of 65mph. The all-new Kraken Unleashed will make the experience even more realistic thanks to the new virtual reality headsets, and it will also be the first roller coaster in Florida to permanently use this impressive technology. Don’t worry, you don’t have to use the headsets if you don’t want to. Each rider will have the choice of whether to use them or not, but we’d really recommend that you do use them to get the most out of the experience- if you can brave it that is!

 

Kraken Unleashed Virtual Reality at SeaWorld Orlando

 

The use of VR totally transforms the amazing rollercoaster into a fully immersive underwater adventure. Brian Morrow (Vice-President of SeaWorld’s Theme Park Experience Design) explained that the virtual reality headsets will make riders feel as though they are boarding a submarine, not a roller coaster. As you plunge into the depths of the ocean, beware of the surprises lurking at the bottom, like a murky kelp forest and a blazing lava field. The ride is named after a mythical sea serpent called the Kraken, and for the first time, riders will come face to face with the enormous beast. One thing’s for sure, this ride isn’t for the faint-hearted.

With the opening of a new ride, you’d expect there to be long queues of excited guests waiting to try it out, but SeaWorld have come up with a way to banish the lines. Spot Saver is completely free to use and lets you reserve a place in line for the Kraken, before returning later in the day when it’s your turn to ride. You can reserve your place through the SeaWorld app, or at the ride itself, but make sure you do this as soon as you arrive, to secure your time. You can then explore the rest of the park while you wait.

 

Electric Ocean at SeaWorld Orlando

 

That’s not all that’s new this month! From 17th June- 5th August a brand new night-time show called Electric Ocean, will entertain guests after dark. This is the new way to end your day at the park, and is great fun for the whole family. Packed with colour, light and music, this amazing show will end with a dazzling firework display called ‘Ignite’. SeaWorld are also hosting a family dance party called ‘Club Sea Glow’. Brush up on your dance moves, because this is the perfect opportunity to show them off.

 

SeaWorld Orlando Pop Bubble Show

 

A new show called ‘Pop’ has recently launched too. World-famous bubble masters ‘Bubble Legendary’ have collaborated with SeaWorld to bring a truly one-of-a-kind show to the park. Guinness World Record holder-Fan Yang, recreates the wonders of the ocean with his spectacular bubble artistry. You really won’t want to miss this!
