3. Kraken, Orlando’s only floorless roller coaster – is themed after a massive, mythological underwater beast unleashed from the depths of the sea. Riders’ feet dangle as they travel in open-sided seats, riding on a pedestal above the track at highway speeds to heights of more than 150 feet. (Guests must be 54 inches tall to ride.)

4. Journey to Atlantis is an edge-of-your-seat watercoaster that plunges guests into the middle of a clash for the lost city of Atlantis. Riders encounter spine-tingling thrills and steep, fast drops that will leave them soaked form head to toe. (Guests must be 54 inches tall to ride.)

5. Shamu Express- Themed after SeaWorld’s famous killer whale, Shamu Express thrills children and parents alike while traveling down more than 850 feet of track at up to 26 mph.
