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!"

Reviews

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. 8/10
Nice smooth and open aired feeling love this ride ! 10/10
This is exactly how a perfect coaster should be done. Plenty of inversions to make you wonder which side is up. After riding this you will definately want to ride over and over again. Currently my favortie coaster ive ever been on as of writing this! Sea World always does a marvelous job with coasters!
