If you’re a big roller coaster fan, the name Mako might already be familiar to you. Back in June 2016, SeaWorld Orlando unveiled an incredible new coaster called Mako, that was inspired by the world’s fastest shark. The thrilling coaster was an instant hit with guests and became the tallest, fastest and longest coaster in Orlando. Thanks to its incredible popularity, SeaWorld will be introducing a brand new version of Mako to their San Diego park! Here’s what you need to know…
The exciting new coaster will also be called Mako and is set to open at SeaWorld San Diego in 2020. Similar to the Orlando attraction, this new ride will become the tallest, fastest and longest dive coaster in California. That’s not all though, it will also be the only floorless dive coaster in the state!
Prepare to ascend 153-feet into the air with your feet dangling, before being mercilessly suspended at a 45-degree angle at the crown of the ride. Before you know it, you’ll plummet down a 143-foot, facedown vertical drop reaching staggering speeds of more than 60mph!
You’ll also have to face several inversions, a barrel roll, Immelmann loop, hammerhead turn and flat spin as you speed along almost 2,500 feet of track. Think you’ve got what it takes to brave this epic coaster?
The new attraction is of course inspired by the Mako shark and will focus on shark awareness and conservation. SeaWorld San Diego will be partnering with a shark conservation organisation to help educate guests through this amazing new attraction.
Mako will be located next to the park’s Journey to Atlantis ride, so make sure you check that out while you’re there.
