Heide Park Completing Krake Theming

If you remember last season when Krake, a B&M dive machine, opened in Germany's Heide Park many fans were disappointed that the base of the vertical drop did not contain the elaborate theming that concept art has previously shown.

There were rumblings that the design didn't work out and had to be scratched during construction, but the park has made good on that original art this offseason.

Seen above is a massive crushed ship structure, being pulled down to the depths of the ocean by the Krake's tentacles, that is now waiting for riders at the base of the drop.  The theming quality looks quite elaborate in a series of photos the park has shared, no doubt that this will greatly enhance the ride.
