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.

Plan Your Stay in Orlando

Book your stay at the Doubletree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld, the official hotel for SeaWorld Orlando. We are right across from SeaWorld’s Waterpark and Aquatica and mere minutes from some of the biggest theme parks in the world.
