Today I had the opportunity to attend the Media Day and the announcement of a new roller coaster Kraken a floorless coaster built by B&M. The event began at 9:30 am as around 50 members of the Florida Coaster Club arrived for the days activities. Great display with a large dragon and dancers followed by a short burst of fireworks highlighted by a train load of mimes to finish off the Grand Opening. The best way to torture a mime is to send them on a roller coaster into the dragons lair. We received 4 hours of exclusive ride time on Kraken, great badges and a free lunch. I was able to ride Kraken 47 times on Media Day. Some photos below of Kraken and the mimes courtesy of Sea World.
