Today, SeaWorld Orlando unveiled the custom-built Mako lead car that will take riders on a thrilling experience this summer - the tallest, fastest and longest roller coaster in Orlando.
Mako's design and engineering was inspired by the real Mako shark - one of the ocean's fastest shark species. When it opens, Mako will top 200 feet high and reach speeds of 73 mph on a track that's nearly a mile long. The new ride will be a hypercoaster, which means it's all about speed, tight turns and that weightless feeling riders get at the top of each hill.
Coaster Train Design Facts Include:
The coaster will boast a total of 21 cars - including 3 trains of 7 cars per train.
