SeaWorld set to welcome Orlando’s tallest, fastest and longest rollercoaster

28th May 2015 Tourism News

Surfacing next summer is Mako, a 200-foot-tall hypercoaster that will reach speeds of up to 73 mph along 4,760 feet of steel track — nearly a mile long — leaving riders feeling both breathless and weightless. The ride, which will open at SeaWorld, will be the tallest, fastest and longest coaster in Orlando. Mako’s tight turns and speed are inspired by one of the ocean’s fastest sharks - Mako sharks, also called “blue pointers”, are known for their top speed, making extreme jumps and the ability to quickly change course as they pursue their prey.
