Hi guys. Just made this thread to ask two random questions about a roller coaster that I absolutely adore; Mako at SeaWorld Orlando! The ride is my current number 1 coaster and I've loved it since that very first ride on 23rd August 2016! Anyway, my two questions are: Does anyone know how steep the first drop is? I've heard 80 degrees quoted somewhere, but I heard someone else say that the drop isn't as steep as Shambhala's, which is 77.4 degrees according to RCDB. For any Orlando locals or people who have ridden Mako a lot over the 2 years it's been operating; has there been any major change in the ride's speed that you have noticed, such as a change in wheels or the ride's trim and MCBR being softened? Only asking because reviews of the ride seem far more positive now than they were in the ride's opening year.
