The Latest Florida Theme Park Attractions not to miss out on

Kraken Unleashed, SeaWorld Orlando

Even if you have already often been on SeaWorld’s Kraken roller coaster, you now have a good reason to try it yet again – as it has been revamped with the addition of the virtual reality experience Kraken Unleashed. You can climb into a familiar coaster train – except that, this time, the train will have fully integrated headsets that are uniquely designed and provide a custom digital overlay.

Volcano Bay, Universal Studios Florida

On 25 May, Universal Studios Florida opened its third theme park, Volcano Bay, reports TravelPulse. This is a 30-acre water park of which the focal point is the 200-foot Krakatau “fire and water volcano”. It’s certainly a spectacular sight, streaming waterfalls when the sky is light and fiery lava effects during the night.

Overall, Volcano Bay has 18 attractions; our favourite is definitely a multidirectional wave pool with twisting raft rides that can be enjoyed by multiple riders.
