Does anyone here know the recipe for Trader Sam's Krakatoa Punch?

I thought it to be their version of a Painkiller?

My cocktail guide says:

3 oz Coconut Cream
3 oz Pusser's Rum
1 splash(es) Orange Juice
4 oz Pineapple Juice

The description of the Krakatoa reads:

Reserve and Spiced Rums, Tropical Juices, Orgeat (Almond) Syrup, Sam's Gorilla Grog, and Hibiscus Grenadine.

Not sure I see too much resemblance.

I have only a vague remembrance of drinking that drink about a year ago.

However, if I were to try and reconstruct it based on their description, here's what I might start with as a first experiment:

Reserve Rum (1 and 1/2 oz Appleton Estate)
Spiced Rums (1 oz Kraken Spiced Rum)
Tropical Juices (1/2 oz each of Pineapple/Orange/Guava nectar and 2 oz lemon juice)
Orgeat Syrup (1/4 oz)
Sam's Gorilla Grog (1/4 oz BG Reynolds Falernum syrup & 1/4 oz BG Reynolds Cinnamon syrup)
Hibiscus Grenadine (1/4 oz of BG Reynolds Hibiscus Grenadine Syrup)
Spritz of Club Soda
Crushed ice.

This is based on absolutely nothing. It may taste terrible. You have been warned.

I may be mixing up the drinks from there?
I shall research it further, but did you not just answer your own question?

I have an idea, but that's far from a recipe. One person said it tastes strongly of pineapple. It isn't important, I just thought I'd ask. It's amazing the knowledge I come across on TC.

There's definitely no "strong" pineapple taste other than what might be included in their juices. Sounds to me like you need to break down what exactly is in their Gorilla Grog and you'll be pretty well off, since everything else is mentioned in the menu.
