SeaWorld unveils Mako coaster train

- SeaWorld Orlando revealed another part of its new roller coaster Tuesday morning when it showed off the lead car for Mako. 

The fiberglass car is painted like the head of a shark. The train's sleek lines are meant to evoke an actual Mako shark, one of the fastest sharks in the ocean. 

According to SeaWorld, Mako will be the tallest, longest, fastest rollercoaster in Orlando when it opens this summer. It could help draw new visitors to the park that has struggled with attendance in recent years. 

Mako will rise 200 feet above a new realm at SeaWorld dedicated to sharks.
