Aquatica gives tour of new water slide, Ihu's Breakaway Falls

Ride scheduled to open May 9 in Orlando


ORLANDO, Fla. – SeaWorld Aquatica gave a tour of its newest ride, Ihu's Breakaway Falls, on Friday.

Aquatica's new slide will be the tallest, steepest multi-drop tower water slide in the South when it opens on May 9.

Ihu's Breakaway Falls will be nearly 104 feet tall and riders will drop from 80 feet up in the air with about four options to go down.

"With four new unique slide paths, Ihu's Breakaway Falls brings a whole new level of thrill to Aquatica Orlando," said Bryan Nadeau, Aquatica Orlando vice president.

The ride is named after Ihu, Aquatica Orlando's colorful gecko.
