Mako to Debut June 10 at SeaWorld Orlando

The wait will soon be over.  Mako at SeaWorld Orlando is set to debut to an anxious crowd on June 10.  It will be Orlando’s tallest, fastest, and longest roller coaster.  Recently released behind-the-scenes videos and news reports have generated quite the hype within the last month.

Mako will anchor a new section of SeaWorld called Shark Wreck Reef.  This new experience focuses on the education and preservation of sharks.  Featured within this attraction is Shark Encounter, Sharks Underwater Grill, and shops where you can find souvenirs.  Venture into a theme of an underwater shipwreck and reef before encountering Mako.

Mako will challenge riders to tight turns, the steepest drops, and thrilling speeds of up to 73 miles per hour!  Reach heights of 200 feet into the sky along a track that runs nearly a mile long.  Riders will feel a sense of weightlessness as they experience intense airtime.  There are no typical harnesses, and riders will only be held down by a lap bar.  Wow!  My heart just races thinking about this roller coaster.

Stay tuned to our Blog.  We may even take a special trip away from work to experience the Awesome Attraction of Mako when it opens.  Better yet, come to SeaWorld Orlando to ride this hypercoaster yourself.

SeaWorld Orlando will soon be home to Orlando’s tallest, fastest, and longest roller coaster.  Mako is set to debut in Summer, 2016.  Dedicated to the ocean’s fastest shark specious, it will be the anchor attraction to an area at SeaWorld all about sharks.  Shark Encounter, a restaurant named Sharks Underwater Grill, and other educational experiences and shops will surround the coaster.

Just this week, the highest point of the roller coaster was installed.  Thrill seekers will be carried 200 feet into the sky before a sudden plunge.  Speeds will reach up to 73 mph!  Experience the feeling of weightlessness as you race through turns and hills.  We will certainly be fighting for a spot in the front of the line!

Plan Your SeaWorld Adventure

No family vacation in Kissimmee would be complete without a trip to SeaWorld of Orlando. The popular aquatic adventure park is one Theme Park where you can do everything in a single day. There is plenty to keep you busy here, including grand marine shows, wildlife exhibits, and even thrill rides.

SeaWorld has strategically scheduled their main shows so that it is possible to see each one throughout your visit. Make sure you plan your visit before you get to the park so you can make the most of your day. You’ll get to see breath-taking performances by dolphins, sea lions, cats and dogs, tropical birds, and of course…Shamu, with the One Ocean show. Fun and educational marine life exhibits are positioned around the park so you can easily stop by an exhibit on the way to the next feature show.

The exhibits let you get up close and personal to various marine life, such as sharks, dolphins, sting rays, sea lions, and sea turtles. Take a journey to the depths of the ocean to study sharks in the Shark Encounter. Get up close and personal to stingrays, in the Manta Aquarium and Stingray Lagoon – where you’ll get to safely touch the rays. A newer exhibit to SeaWorld is TurtleTrek, a fabulous 3D experience! Learn about these unique creatures in a 3-part exhibit that puts you face-to-face with sea turtles.

Thrill seekers will love the high-speed coasters at SeaWorld. Both the Kraken and Manta take you on a heart-pounding adventure through twists and turns. The Journey to Atlantis is a flume ride similar to Splash Mountain at Disney World. Explore the mysterious sights and sounds of Atlantis before being flung down a watery slope. A splash of water at the end of the ride refreshes you on a hot Florida day.

Special seasonal shows throughout the year and attractive pricing make SeaWorld a great place to keep coming back to multiple times throughout the year. Ask Magical Memories for help in planning your memorable trip to Orlando and SeaWorld. Our staff enjoys the local attractions as much as our guests!
