Kraken Unleashed: SeaWorld Orlando Roller Coaster

THE Kraken Unleashed unites, in a single attraction, two passions of those who visit Orlando: the roller coaster and the simulator.

The name of the attraction was inspired by a folk legend. According to her, Kraken was a marine creature, similar to a squid, that lived in the northern Atlantic Ocean.

Located at Sea World Orlando, a atração é uma montanha russa.

No momento em que você se senta no carrinho, coloca um óculos de realidade virtual (VR), que simula o fundo do mar.

So, you live an adventure in the depths of the sea, as if you were in a submarine. The idea of the attraction is that you run away from the Kraken Unleashed monster.

The addition of VR's at Kraken Unleashed took place in 2017. Before, this attraction had the same route, but without any gold stimulus.

Features of Kraken Unleashed

THE roller coaster Kraken é completa! Dessa forma, existem loopings, inversões, corckscrew, cobra roll, etc. A velocidade pode chegar a 105 quilômetros por hora!

In addition, Kraken Unleashed has several moments of "submersion". I mean, they are seen like that through virtual reality glasses.

However, looking from the outside, they are underground passages, in tunnels. In all, the journey takes about 2.5 minutes.

Remember that you must measure at least 1.37 meters in order to enjoy this attraction.

Virtual reality (VR) glasses

** Vale ressaltar que a Realidade Virtual da Montanha-Russa está desativada no momento e não sabemos se irá retornar!

This is the element that draws the most attention in Kraken Unleashed.

The moment you enter the cart, put on the virtual reality glasses. This accessory will be attached to that safety vest on each seat.

Don't worry, VR's don't let go of your face. This setback was designed and, therefore, the virtual reality glasses are attached to the seat vests.

In front of your chest, there will be a black box. It corresponds to the place where the VR's are kept. In addition, this box is a kind of controller for each of the virtual reality glasses.

Through VR's, you simulate being on a submarine, which will be launched on the seabed.

In addition to seeing, you can also hear the sounds made by water and marine animals, including the Kraken. This sensation is possible thanks to the headphones present at the attraction.

The simulator makes a very real impression, especially when the maneuvers are made.

This is because the movements of Kraken Unleashed are fully synchronized with the images of virtual reality. Cool huh?!

It is important to note that the use of virtual reality glasses and headsets is not mandatory. You can choose not to use them.

However, I can guarantee that the sensation of virtual reality at Kraken Unleashed is the great differential of this attraction.

How is the Kraken Unleashed queue?

The environment in which you wait in line to board the Kraken Unleashed takes you to the bottom of the sea. More precisely, in a cave environment.

You can hear sounds that look like water and sea monsters. It is really scary!

Além disso, as rochas dessa caverna são muito realistas.

Você pode, ainda, observar televisões com algumas informações sobre a Kraken Unleashed.

Porém, mesmo com todas as distrações, o tempo de fila é longo.

Isso ocorre porque a Kraken Unleashed é bem procurada pelos visitantes do Sea World.

The time is long, too, due to the hygiene of the virtual reality glasses: all are sterilized after use. Only after cleaning can they be used by others.

Unfortunately, this attraction does not have the Quick Queue, let alone with the single rider.

Percurso da Atração

As soon as you sit on the Kraken Unleashed stroller benches, the virtual reality goggles are adjusted by park staff.

The simulation is very synchronized with the path the cart takes. Therefore, at no time will you feel lost in relation to what you see and what you feel.

In the beginning, the observed image corresponds to a launch platform for the submarine. That way, you will feel your means of transport falling into the water.

For those who are not using VR, this moment corresponds to the first descent of the roller coaster.

From there, you can observe several marine animals and follow some of them.

The elements of the Kraken Unleashed, especially the rapid descents, are seen in the image as if it were a submersion in the depths of the sea.

At all times, you will feel like you are fleeing the Kraken. Thus, the loopings and all other elements felt on the tracks are simulated by the submarine.

As the words don't perfectly show how Kraken Unleashed really is, check out the video below. In it, you will be able to compare the simulation of virtual glasses with the path of the cart.

Radical SeaWorld Attractions

O SeaWorld tem feito uma migração gradual entre diminuir suas interações com animais comos os famosos shows dos golfinhos o Dolphin Days or the Orcas whale shows ( Orca Encounter - New Show ).

And migrating to more attractions like the others Orlando parks.

Inclusive tem se tornado um excelente parque para aqueles que buscam atrações mais radicais

In addition to Kraken, there you will also find:

That of course, not to mention the children's attractions like the new Sesame Street among many others ...

Get your Parks Tickets at a Discount

Many people leave to buy their tickets arriving in Orlando or even on the day of the park.

We do not in any way recommend that you do this for a variety of reasons, such as:

If you buy tickets on the spot, you won't be able to book your park days in advance at the risk of not even being able to enter a park on a given day.

You will lose valuable park minutes in line to buy your tickets.

AND MAINLY, you will pay more because tickets at the box office are more expensive than buying in advance!
