Mako Construction Update #18 ~ SeaWorld Orlando
Another week and another exciting update on SeaWorld Orlando’s newest coaster, Mako!
First up, on our fly through shipwreck near what will be the entrance we see details being added to the base rock-work and so far is looking great!
From the aerial perspective we see more concrete laid in the entrance plaza area:
We also see that the queue continues to make progress with some fencing possibly being built around the queue paths:
While we were riding crew members were transferring a train with water dummies off the track:
Over at the walls near Sharks Underwater Grill we see a concrete pad has been put in place and looks to be some vertical posts being placed. We will still keep an eye on this area as it develops:
Meanwhile, it looks like the former Fins gift shop will no longer be called Fins as the signs have removed. Another possibility is that the store will be getting a new sign:
Here’s a look back when the store was open:
At the main lagoon area it looks like netting has been added to the posts on the outside of the dive:
On Saturday, we gained some awesome information that if you’re a pass member there are 3 way to be among the 1st to ride Mako via the Town Hall with CEO Joel Manby:
Also at the Town Hall we got our first look at the first Mako commercial:
Excitement is building all over for Mako as correspondent Ray noticed a sign in the international terminal welcoming travelers to Orlando:
SeaWorld has started to spread the conservation message tied to Mako a little more in the past few week and a key component to that is Finn:
