SeaWorld Gets Ready for Mako, Central Florida’s First Hypercoaster
Rivaling all other roller coasters in Orlando, Mako will feature a 200-foot drop and reach speeds of up to 70 MPH
As Orlando theme parks continue to overhaul and renew the excitement of its rides and attractions, SeaWorld has upped the ante with an all-new attraction that will crown it as king of the roller coaster—or better yet, Central Florida’s first hypercoaster. The high-speed experience that SeaWorld plans to give its visitors is truly unmatched by any of Orlando’s theme parks and promises to deliver an adrenaline rush like no other. Currently, SeaWorld has two other roller coasters—Manta and Kraken—but Mako will dwarf them with its 200-foot drop and immense structure.
Hyper coasters have been around for just over two decades and have become staples of amusement parks such as Six Flags. The world of roller coasters has a strong following worldwide, to the extent that there are associations with organized members who travel around the world seeking the thrill of the drops and tight turns of these entertainment venues. SeaWorld hopes to attract crowds of loyal roller coaster fans, who spare no expense when it comes to enjoying them.
The last time SeaWorld Orlando added a roller coaster was in 2009, when it inaugurated Manta, and it has been a sheer success. The addition of Mako in 2016 will grow the SeaWorld coaster family to a total of three, making it the most roller coasters in one single Orlando theme park. And as you can expect, Vista Cay Resort by Millenium is the place where you can come rest after a long day riding Mako.
So be sure to book your Orlando vacation with us early as we expect 2016 to be a year to remember!
