As we all wait anxiously for June 10th to arrive, Mako made its debut run along its 4,760-foot steal track at SeaWorld Orlando.
Mako plunged 200-feet down from its initial lift hill, surged through nine air-time hills and reached topped speeds of 73 mph. Can you imagine how much of a smile this is going to put on your face (just let that sink in……….73mph).
