ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - SeaWorld Orlando plans to build a 200-foot tall roller coaster than can get up to 73 miles per hour. 

SeaWorld officials said Wednesday that the new coaster Mako will be the tallest and fastest coaster in Orlando when it opens next year. 

The coaster will have 4,760 feet of steel track, and it will be located in a section of the park themed for sharks.

The addition of Mako will give the marine-themed park five thrill rides.
