SeaWorld Orlando has sent its new Bolliger & Mabillard hypercoaster, Mako, for its first test run. Let's take a look at the POV video:
When it opens on June 10, Mako will be Orlando's tallest and fastest roller coaster, topping out at 200 feet and running at a top speed of 73 miles per hour. As you can see from the video, the ride should feature abundant airtime elements, as well.
Mako is themed to the shark species "known for their top speed, making extreme jumps and the ability to quickly change course as they pursue their prey," according to a SeaWorld press release. Mako will be the park's third major roller coaster, the B&M floorless Kraken and B&M flying coaster Manta, which won the Theme Park Insider Award for Best New Attraction in 2009.
