It’s been a busy and hectic year for the Orlando Theme Parks, but a great time to be a park-goer. While Orlando is home to some of the best entertainment and experiences. From the Disney Parks, Universal Studios, to all of the amazing food. While all of these offer their own variety of experiences, tastes, and smalls, they may not offer the things you’d like to do.

From the frightening tall tales, SeaWorld Orlando’s mighty Kraken is a monster of a coaster like no other. Kraken here at SeaWorld Orlando is a steel roller coaster that is floorless. The Kraken is Orlando’s only floorless roller coaster and the ride itself is themed after the massive, mythological underwater creature that was unleashed from the depths of the sea.

With a track length of 4,177 feet, it features a total of 7 inversions and reaches a maximum speed of 65 mph. On the ride itself, riders’ feet dangle as they travel in open sided seats, zooming on a pedestal above the track at highway speeds.
