Kraken Unleashed to Open June 16, 2017! – Orlando United
This promo pic they're using is ridiculous. I like it though!
Wow, that's only a couple of months away, they better get kraken.
Banned. Reported. All that.
I literally lol'd! Thank you for the awkward stares from everyone around me.
The video features a brief summary of Kraken Unleashed, along with a quick preview of on-ride footage.
I sent my daughter a link to the info. Her response was, "Good! Maybe now I won't fall asleep on it!"
Sea world just had a live Facebook broadcast from the maintenance bay on Kracken. Two of the trains already have all the VR, the other two are awaiting conversion, not seen the he headsests, only the bags, but they seem to be Samsung.
....She would say that for sure.
Here is a screenshot from the fb live video of the train:
And RIP Kraken head (my old pic from March 2008)....
Quick update from yesterday. Looked like they were working mostly on stuff on the lift hill while I was there, including setting some sensor things up. Not sure if they were temporary or permanent, but I assume it's to help synchronize the VR somehow. More pics here.
Looks like they're setting up some kind of sensors to synchronize VR experience:
Games and gift shop closed too:
I'm gonna miss the eel:
This morning as I ran through SW, I noticed that a chunk of the Kraken's head was taken out. Poor Kraken.
I don't know why they're taking that out...why not just make a big pair of VR goggles for it?
It looks really off from some angles tho. Like the profile looks just as weird as the Raptors at IOA.
Hole in his head!
Noticed that too when I was there yesterday, lol, looks really odd.
Guessing it was really built to last so may take some effort to demolish. The eel is going bye bye to make way for a more squid-like Kraken. Which is fine by me cause that's more in line with legend. I'll miss silly eel though.
I won't miss it at all. It was fug.
It really wasn't the best but still seeing it go makes me sad. Nostalgia I guess
It can go hang out in statue heaven with the fire and ice dragon now.
