When Mako opens this June, it will be the perfect complement to SeaWorld's current pair of coasters: Kraken and Manta! Coaster enthusiasts have enjoyed this daring duo for a few years, but if you've not discovered them for yourself take look below! We're offering a preview of Mako along with a POV experience of both Kraken and Manta! You'll see more of the reasons to plan your thrill-seeker trip to Central Florida!

Mako

SeaWorld's new Mako hypercoaster opens June 10! Once guests board the ride, they'll climb 200 feet up the initial lift hill to begin their journey on the nearly one-mile of steel track. They'll soon be plunging down and surging through tight turns and nine air-time hills, reaching a top speed of 73 mph!

Kraken

This floorless roller coaster is named for a massive, mythological sea creature that would rise from the depths of the sea. When this Kraken is unleashed, you'll find yourself rising 150 feet above the park for spectacular views and incredible thrills!

Manta

This innovative coaster allows you to glide, spin and fly like a giant ray! As the only flying roller coaster of its kind in the world, guests race head-first, face-down, soaring through the park, skimming over water, making loops and turns along the way.

This thrilling trio is only a small part of the fun found at SeaWorld Orlando. Start planning your visit to SeaWorld now, and buy your tickets in advance!
