Hey Thrill Seekers,
The opening of a proper, real life roller coaster for me is the most exciting thing to happen at a theme park. I like some motion rides and I’m partial to a cool drop ride but nothing beats a brand new roller coaster.
This summer SeaWorld will be unveiling its brand new hyper coast MAKO… Eeeeek!!! Today SeaWorld gave us a little sneak peak into what we can expect from the ride cars well be strapped to when it launches.
As you can see you’ll be restrained in the ride car by a lap belt, which may cause some to launch into a complete panic… for me it raises the adrenaline level to 10!!! 🙂
Here’s some Mako facts;
Coaster Train Design Facts Include:
- Mako-Inspired Custom Car – In a collaboration between SeaWorld’s animal experts and ride engineers, the car is inspired by the physiology of an actual Mako shark, including five gills on each side, eye placement and sleek, hydro-dynamic look.
- Fast Wheels– Comprised of a special compound that reduces friction — providing a smooth, relentlessly fast ride from beginning to end.
- Upper Body Mobility – With only a lap guard on their lower body, riders’ upper bodies are free for added mobility and “airtime”
The coaster will boast a total of 21 cars – including 3 trains of 7 cars per train.
We’ll keep you updated when we learn more.
