SeaWorld Orlando Officially Begins Testing Mako's Trains

Mako made its very first run along its 4,760-foot steel track at SeaWorld Orlando this week. During the inaugural test ride, Mako plunged 200-feet down from its initial lift hill, surged through nine air-time hills and reached speeds of 73 mph.
Mako’s tight turns and speed are inspired by reality. Mako sharks are known for their top speed, making extreme jumps and the ability to quickly change course as they pursue their prey. Riders will become submerged into the world of the mako shark and feel the power of this predator starting from June 10, 2016.

Here you are a point-of-view video of Mako, showing the entirety of its track minus the loading area:

The following photos were taken during one of the first test runs of SeaWorld's new hyper coaster:

  1. That is insane! ! ! When SeaWorld announced that they were building another coaster, I thought "why? They need more animals and fish." But, now that I've seen this video, it will be a huge draw, and including it into a shark themed area is genius! -LOOK HOW HIGH THAT IS!

  2. You have to see it in person! So excited for this! Fastest, tallest in Orlando!

  3. Looks awesome! Thanks! 👍
