Mako is a steel roller coaster located at SeaWorld Orlando in Orlando, Florida. Manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard, the hypercoaster model opened to the public on June 10, 2016.

It reaches a height of 200 feet (61 m), a maximum speed of 73 mph (117 km/h), and features a track length of 4,760 feet (1,450 m).

The roller coaster was marketed as the tallest, fastest, and longest roller coaster in Orlando and has been well-received, ranking every year since its opening in the top 50 of the annual Golden Ticket Awards publication from Amusement Today. It attained its highest ranking of 15 in 2019. The ride is one of six roller coasters at SeaWorld Orlando and the first since Manta opened in 2009.

  • This was the best coaster at SeaWorld. I was surprised how good it was. Smooth as butter, good airtime, and a very enjoyable ride.

  • Great coaster. Lots of zero gravity fun!!! great 1st drop too! Can't wait to ride again!! Only wish they filled all the seats for each ride. Too many empty seats = long lines!!

  • NO. 1 RIDE IN THE PARK!!!! You get lots of airtime on the hills, no matter what row you're in. And the first drop is very intense in the back row! Would recommend for thrill seekers of all ages (as long as you meet the minimum height requirement of course ^o^).
  • Excellent ride! Very fast, I would not recommend if you pass out easily. But definitely a rush for the daring.
  • Very thrilling and fast and not to mention smooth. Feels like you are floating. Seats are comfortable and leave your whole upper body exposed. Best ride here
  • Wow, this roller coaster surprised me. This doesn't have any loops or parts where it goes upside down but it makes up for it in the g forces you feel while riding it. The most thrilling part is the initial drop after you climb to its highest point, it drops you straight down at a 90° angle and it feels like you're going down and in at a steeper angle (if that makes any sense). This coaster was my nephew's first roller coaster experience so he's a big fan and it gave him enough courage to eventually try some of the larger coasters here at the park like Manta and the Kraken, which he loves tremendously now too.
  • Mako probably makos the list of top roller coasters I’ve ridden. (I know, that was a pretty bad joke attempt) Roller coasters are known to be adrenaline rush inducers, but Mako is one of the very few coasters I’ve been on that actually makes me genuinely terrified with joy. It is a thing, trust me. The tummy ticklers on this ride are insane. The coaster goes fast, but not as fast feeling as some I’ve been on. I’m not quite sure what it is about this one. It is a very windy ride as well, much more than even the average coaster. Every time I’ve ridden I have tears streaming down my face by the end because of the wind (not crying, I promise). As fun as this ride is, I cannot give it 5 stars because of how frustrating it is to wait to ride. For some reason, there is no one directing traffic for the lines. So when you finally get up to the platform for each row, everyone kind of goes where they please and there’s zero order to it. Which makes things go so much slower because no one’s corralling people. Disney and Universal have this down and it’s so much more efficient. I think the wait time on this ride could be reduced dramatically if they’d only have someone in charge of the line queue- it’s an easy fix.
