ORLANDO, Fla. – SeaWorld has installed the last of 200 sections of Aquatica's newest attraction.

The last-minute preps are for the ride Ihu's Breakaway Falls, which opens 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.

Three of the slides drop randomly so that thrill-seekers can watch fellow sliders fall while waiting their turn. Or, they can try out the fourth open slide.

Aquatica calls Ihu's Breakaway Falls Orlando's tallest, steepest and the only multidrop tower slide of its kind.

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