New Mako Coaster Construction Progress at SeaWorld Orlando


At SeaWorld Orlando, construction is well underway way on MAKO – an all-new hypercoaster opening this summer – begins to take shape along the Orlando skyline.  The coaster was “topped off” recently as cranes put into place the tallest point of the structure – the tracks of its signature 200-foot tall hill.

When it opens, Mako will be Orlando’s tallest, fastest and longest roller coaster –this 200-foot tall hyper coaster will reach speeds of 73 mph along 4,760 feet of track, which is nearly a mile long.  The thrilling ride will be the centerpiece of a two-acre, shark-themed realm in the park.20160106_MakoTopOut_064
