SeaWorld's much anticipated hypercoaster made its first trek along the tracks this week in preparation for its public debut June 10.

The car didn't fly off during the ride, so we guess it was successful.



The run had the coaster racing through nine air-time hills, capping at 73 mph and reaching heights of 200 feet, according to a press release from the theme park. 

Although guests can't currently ride Mako, they can catch a presentation called "Mako Rising," which details the ride's design.
