EVENTS_ events written on bulletin boardEvents Taking Place this Summer

The Mascot Games at Amway Center will take place on June 17 and 18. What could be more fun than watching 30 mascots from a range of teams across the country taking part in a host of games? It is expected that nearly 2,000 fans will head to the games to enjoy the adrenaline-inducing, exciting competitions as mascots take part in gladiator-style games to be crowned the true mascot champion of the world. Mascots from NCAA, MLB, NHL, NBA and NFL are expected to take part.

The games are for a great cause, too. All proceeds will benefit New Hope for Kids, an organization that offers support to families and children who are grieving the loss of a loved one. The charity also grants wishes to children suffering from life-threatening illnesses in the Central Florida area.

Another not-to-be-missed event is the WWE Summer Slam Heatwave Tour. On June 26 fans will have the chance to see some of the top WWE champions take to the ring, including Women’s Champion, Charlotte; Heavyweight Champion, Roman Reigns and Intercontinental Champions Sasha Banks, The Miz and plenty others.

You Won’t Want to Miss the Mako™ Opening Day in June

Orlando’s tallest, fastest and longest roller coaster is set to open on June 10th. Don’t miss your chance to board the shark-inspired thrill ride on Mako™ opening day!

SeaWorld’s Newest Roller Coaster Is Set to Thrill MAKO ride SeaWorld Orlando

SeaWorld’s newest roller coaster is over 4,500 feet long. The first lift will top out at 200 feet above the theme park and the ride will get to speeds of 73 mph. This is sure to outdo the other roller coasters at SeaWorld Orlando in terms of speed, height and length.

Once the train leaves the station, it will make a right turn to the 200-foot lift hill, right next to the Kraken ride’s dive loop. When the train reaches the top, it will drop at incredible speeds before making a 125-foot tall turn where it will then soar up a 115-foot hill. After all that weightlessness, the ride enters its most unique element – the Hammerhead turn. This is a tight U-turn that goes right and then carries the train over a camelback hill before making an airtime turn into a smaller hill. The train makes a few more turns before heading back into the station.
