Ihu’s Breakaway Falls Takes Waterslide Thrills to New Heights

This summer, Ihu’s Breakaway Falls™ – the tallest, steepest and only multi-drop tower slide of its kind in Orlando – is something you must experience at Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark™. Riders climb 126 steps to the top of the eight-story tower (nearly 80 feet), stepping into one of three colorful breakaway boxes. As the door closes, riders cross their arms and give a thumbs up in preparation for their drop – they’ll never know when the floor beneath them will disappear!

Facing each other, riders watch as their fellow riders fall. Adding to the anticipation is the sound of a heartbeat, which can be heard in the background while bracing for the drop. Once the floor disappears, riders drop 20-24 feet per second, launching them into a spiraling speed slide culminating in a final splashdown.

Riders who are not quite brave enough for the breakaway boxes can try the open slide. But don’t be fooled, this is not an ordinary slide; it’s the steepest of the four slides and many riders are calling it the most intense. Ihu’s Breakaway Falls™ is the only high-speed water thrill slide in the world with three breakaway boxes that face each other, so riders can share the full experience.
