Attention all Thrill-Seekers! SeaWorld Orlando is making waves and about to change the game of Roller Coasters in Central Florida. They have installed the final piece of Mako’s nearly mile-long steel track – completing the footprint of what will be Orlando’s longest coaster (as well as fastest and tallest) This January, SeaWorld topped off the highest point of the coaster, with a crest that reaches 200 feet in the air. Yes, 200!
Following tradition, the 12,500-pound, final piece of track was topped with a waving American flag as it was lifted high in the air by a giant crane, and then bolted into place by workers. The moment finished off a track that is 4,760 feet of pure thrill.
When Mako opens this summer, it will top 200 feet high and reach speeds of 73 mph. Riders will feel weightless as they reach the top of each hill. Talk about an adrenaline rush!
With all the excitement going on over at SeaWorld, Florida Residents don’t forget to take advantage of Annual Passes for $14 a month!
