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. Keeping with the SeaWorld placement, the coaster is themed to a legendary sea serpent kept by ocean god Poseidon. Kraken got an unlikely publicity boost from a theme park rival when Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest featured the legendary sea beast throughout. And if that weren't enough pop-culture cachet, just try to get through the queue now without hearing someone do a Liam Neeson impersonation: "Release the Kraken!"


The head banging I got on Kraken recently rivals old Hulk and some of the earlier B&M standups. The worst B&M in Florida and Bizzaro at SFGADV and Medusa at SFDK are much better.
As a big fan of tall B&M loopers, I was very underwhelmed by Kraken. I was hoping for something just a bit more intense or perhaps just memorable. I enjoyed the ride, but it really isn't much to write home about. With Mako and Manta now in the park, it just sort of pales in comparison. 7/10
