Known as Orlando’s “tallest, fastest, longest and only floorless roller coaster,” Kraken (named for the legendary sea monster) reaches heights of 151 feet and speeds up to 65 miles per hour!

Opened in the spring of 2000, Kraken features a 14-story drop and lies over a pool of water known as the Serpent’s Lagoon. The ride itself, which was designed by legendary roller coaster architects Bolliger and Mabillard of Switzerland, takes approximately 3½ minutes.

Height Restriction: You must be at least 54 inches tall to ride the Kraken roller coaster. Health restrictions may apply as well; view the warning sign located at the entrance to the thrill ride.
