SeaWorld Orlando has installed the final piece of Mako’s nearly mile-long steel track – completing the footprint of what will be Orlando’s longest, tallest and fastest coaster.

The 12,500-pound, final piece of track was topped with a waving American flag as it was lifted high in the air by a giant crane, and then bolted into place by workers.

When Mako a true hypercoaster opens this summer, it will top 200 feet high and reach speeds of 73 mph and will be 4,760 feet of pure thrill, riders will feel weightless as they reach the top of each hill.

SeaWorld topped off the highest point of the coaster in January with a crest that reaches 200 feet in the air.
