This Bolliger & Mabillard Floorless model features a 144-foot drop, as well as two loops, a dive loop, a zero-G roll, a cobra roll and a corkscrew.
And did we mention the underground trench? Let's take a virtual ride, thanks to this on-ride video prepared by SeaWorld for Theme Park Insider:
Themed to a legendary sea serpent kept by ocean god Poseidon, Kraken the coaster got a bit of an unlikely publicity boost from a theme park rival when Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" featured the legendary Kraken the sea beast throughout.
Other popular B&M Floorless coasters include Six Flags Great Adventure's Bizarro, Six Flags Magic Mountain's Scream and Kings Dominion's Dominator. We'll find out how Kraken fares when voting begins in the 2010 Best Theme Park Attraction tournament in March.
