SeaWorld Orlando Announces Mako's Grand Opening Date

We've been watching the construction of the Orlando area's tallest, longest and fastest roller coaster, Mako, all winter long and now SeaWorld Orlando is ready to announce when we can all ride.  Mako's grand opening will be June 10th, so mark your calendars!

Mako is a Bolliger and Mabillard designed hyper coaster, standing 200 feet above the park.  Featuring over 4,700 feet of track, riders will reach a top speed of 73 miles per hour on the ride.

To help build even more anticipation for the coaster before the June 10th grand opening, SeaWorld Orlando will premier "Mako Rising," a daily presentation at the Nautilus Theater.  The presentation "gives guests a preview of the ride design, construction and experience, and also shares interesting educational facts about sharks in the wild that need our help."

The presentation sounds like a treat for coaster fans, and the park will also be offering free snacks during the interactive presentation, with prizes and in-park offers to boot.  Who doesn't love frees stuff?  Now we just need Mako to start testing... can't be far off!
