Date Ridden: January of 2007 and 2008 Times Ridden: 20 (yep....20) including 13 consecutive rides in 3 hours on 1-19-2008. Happy Birthday to me on the best "non-gimmick" coaster in Florida!!! I was blessed to be able to spend the first part of my 36th birthday lapping Kraken on a cold and misty morning a week ago. And let me tell you, it was definitely worth the overnight ride from north Georgia to Orlando. I remembered from last year that Kraken was an outstanding coaster, but riding something 13 times in a row gives one a greater understanding for rides that are this good. The pacing on this thing is simply perfect. The large drop into the vertical loop, the dive loop and the zero g roll lead to a virtually perfect first half. The drop off the mid-course brakes down into the two tunnels and the final corkscrew are superb. We even were lucky enough to ride on a virtually empty train in which the mid-course brakes did not kick in leading to an insane second half. Add to that the fact that it was so overcast and misty (it was impossible to even see the course layout from the top of the lift hill) led to some of the best rides I have ever had on any coaster. And amazingly, they were not even the best rides of the trip!! We had a wonderful journey to Florida and Kraken got us off to a great start. My only grip was that for the first hour they were only running one train which led to 20 minute waits in between rides. Once the second train was added, the fun really began as everything else was a walk-on. Kraken gets a solid 9. Make sure to ride the front seat as without a doubt it is the best seat by far on the train.
