The Orlando rollercoaster industry will officially become harder, better, faster, stronger this summer thanks to SeaWorld.

The company announced via press release that their long awaited Mako ride will be making its debut June 10, marking the first time a hypercoaster has made it onto the city's theme park scene.

Mako will be the "tallest, fastest, and longest" coaster in Orlando as well; riders will rise up to 200 feet and rush through twists and turns at up to 73 mph.

Anyone wishing to catch a glimpse of the coming attraction can officially do so on the daily through the "Mako Rising" preview offered at the park's Nautilus Theater. Here, guests can sneak a peak of the "ride design, construction and experience."
