Last night, 4 of the most insane looping coasters in the country went head-to-head in a dizzying category called “Wrong Way Up”! With vertical loops as high as a 12-story building, all 4 of the competing coasters leave riders asking “which way is up??”
This May, viewers voted on whether Orlando’s Kraken, Pennsylvania’s Hydra the Revenge, Ohio’s Vortex or Tennessee’s Wild Eagle would be crowned the most insane Wrong Way Up coaster. So which coaster now holds the title of Lord of the Loops?
Viewers selected Kracken at Sea World in Orlando, FL. At 65 mph, Kracken hurls riders a total of 4,177 feet in less than 2 minutes, with 7 inversions spread throughout the ride. In case you missed it, learn more about the Wrong Way Up winner.
Be sure to tune in next Sunday at 9|8c, when we’ll reveal the winner of the Extreme Heights category. Will it be Carolina’s Intimidator, Cedar Point’s Millennium Force, Ohio’s Diamondback, or New Jersey’s Kingda Ka? What do you think?
