Krake is the first Bolliger & Mabillard Dive Machine rollercoaster in continental Europe, and is located in the "Bucht der Piraten" (Pirate Bay) area of the park. Its major ride was a Splash Battle from Mack Rides. The ride was constructed using 2,000 cubic metres of solid concrete, 150,000 kilos of reinforced steel and 700 tonnes of black track.

Opened at a cost of €12 million addition in April 2011, Krake features a 41-metre-tall lift hill, a vertical drop into a water splashdown and an Immelmann loop. Riders also encounter a hill that provides a feeling of weightlessness ("airtime") and a banked curve to the right, before heading for the final brakes.
