Earlier today, SeaWorld Orlando hosted a special event that included a behind-the-scenes look around the newly-renamed Shark Wreck Reef area of the park.
In addition to highlighting the thematic additions that the existing land continues to receive, media members were taken behind the construction walls to take a peek at the outdoor queue, the loading station, and the area where Mako now stands. Let's explore the area surrounding SeaWorld's new hyper coaster.


First of all, we will take a general look around the Shark Wreck Reef:
