SeaWorld has unleashed the brand new Kraken VR. It’s epic, electrifying and exceptionally cool. A game changer which will leave riders breathless and wanting to ride again. It brings new technologies to the forefront of the theme park world and is said to blow everything else out of the water. Weve selected it as our ride of the month and we cant wait to give it a go.
Heres what you can expect...
Riders will have the option to ride with or without the virtual reality headset which covers their eyes and ears. Those who choose to wear the headset will be fully immersed into the story and will delve on a deep sea mission with Kraken plus other legendary and extinct animals. As the adventure unfolds, the headset presents a movie which is in sync with the motions of the rollercoaster. Those who choose not to don the headset (trust us, it’s worth it!) then they’ll ride the rollercoaster as normal, without taking part in the virtual reality element.
As riders glide around the track, the virtual reality headset experience takes them through the bottom of the ocean where they get up close to mythological beasts, trying not to get eaten. In reality, they’re on a rollercoaster shooting along the track with speeds of up to 70mph and heights of 140ft.
Superior to any stationary virtual reality simulator around, this one-of-a-kind attraction actually first opened over 17 years ago. This re-vamp has seen the ride transform to become one of SeaWorld’s flagship rides. A true fan-favourite which has been exciting riders for many years, Kraken Unleashed will now continue to thrill and delight adventure-seekers.
