SeaWorld Orlando’s Kraken Roller Coaster Becomes a Virtual Reality Ride
You will now be able to experience Kraken in a whole different perspective through this VR ride that employs the latest projection technologies
Virtual Reality allows theme parks to deliver a rich-yet-intense experience for its guests and SeaWorld is set to make waves with the release of Kraken VR—a new roller coaster experience using virtual reality technology that will immerse riders in the world if this legendary beast of the seas. Set to open in Summer 2017, the fully-immersive virtual ride will take riders through a deep-sea journey that will blend sound, video and motion into one of the most daring efforts by SeaWorld Orlando to date. Riders will have a headset that will help put them in the seat of a high-speed roller coaster experience where you will navigate through treacherous situations and sea creatures.
With virtual reality becoming so ubiquitous to the masses, the new SeaWorld ride is expected to reinvigorate attendance to the park, along with other new offerings to include Electric Ocean, Dolphin Nursery and the Seven Seas Festival. The original Kraken has been a favorite of guests since the year 2000 and it is considered by roller coaster fans as one of the best riding experiences in Orlando. SeaWorld is already known as a haven for roller coaster aficionados, thanks to their other rides—Manta and Mako—which offer a live-action roller coaster experience. The new Kraken VR will complement the ensemble and will keep SeaWorld fans enjoying the amazing experience of interacting with sea creatures and learning about the park’s conservation efforts.
