North America's first touring XXL from KMG is on its way across the Atlantic Ocean in preparation for its long-awaited debut.  Iconic Midway Rides / Wade Shows is set to debut ‘The Kraken' at the Central Florida Fair, February 29-March 10 in Orlando. 

UPDATE, February 28, 2024 - Due to shipping delays from the Netherlands, the Kraken will miss its scheduled debut at the Central Florida Fair.

“We're excited the wait is almost over and The Kraken is finally on the way! It turned out just how we envisioned.   It has great working with the entire KMG family and Peter Thuenisz,” said Marina Zaitshik-Small of Iconic Midway Rides & Wade Shows. 

The Kraken is considered the ‘Big Brother' to its smaller counterparts, the Freak Out and Afterburner, but stands at over 40 meters tall (131ft) and swings as high as 45 meters (147ft).    Transported on three semi trailers, The Kraken seats 20 riders per cycle with an hourly capacity of approximately 400 persons per hour. 

In Orlando, the piece will be featured on the Wade Shows Midway.

“A few weeks ago, we were able to visit to the factory, where we got a jumpstart on learning the ride and tore it down for the first time,” said Zaitshik-Small.

The piece is expected to play the independent midways of the San Diego County Fair, Wisconsin State Fair, Minnesota State Fair, and State Fair of Texas, as well as other events on the Wade Shows route.
