Yes indeed, the colora of this and Kraken together, along with the location looks amazing. Can't wait to see the finished product and someday evebtually ride it.

Delicious & Refreshing

Driving down I-4 this morning, it was great to see Mako topped off. It has a little bit of extra height over Kraken's lift hill but the two of them right next to each other (and with Ihu's Breakaway Falls at Aquatica in view) draws your attention towards SeaWorld when driving, which I'm sure was very much a part of their intention with the ride's design choice.

Mako has been topped off! At 200 feet tall, Mako will be the tallest, fastest, and longest roller coaster in Orlando when it opens in 2016!

Looking good, SeaWorld! I'll definitely be checking this ride out sometime later this year.

^Same here--Mako's colors fit in well with the color scheme of the entire park.

Maybe it's just me... but I really like how the MCBR goes through the supports for the lift hill. It's going to create some awesome visuals.
