SeaWorld Orlando has a very busy summer ahead thanks to the new additions coming to the park in the coming weeks. The most important of these amazing new offerings will be their new hyper coaster, Mako. Orlando's longest, tallest, and fastest roller coaster is currently soft-opening to Guests (the ride may close a few hours before the rest of the park closes). Additionally, the new "Summer of Mako" event will introduce entertainment acts that Guests will surely enjoy.


Let's take a look around the park to see what's new since our last visit:

The SeaWorld sign next to Manta has been refurbished. We are glad they kept it:

Manta is still one of the most photogenic coasters in the area:

On the other hand, we are sad to report that Antarctica doesn't look as great as when it first opened:

While we are glad that Guests can now skip the pointless Empire of the Penguin ride, the new railings that have been installed to lengthen the queue look very out of place. We hope they will fix this issue:
