If you love height and thrills, you'll probably head right for Ihu's Breakaway Falls when you visit Aquatica, the SeaWorld Orlando water park. It's the park's newest attraction, and three of its four 80 foot slides encase you in a glass capsule and force you to stand in anticipation without knowing exactly when you're going to drop. It's the perfect mix of thrill elements for those who like to walk (or swim) on the wild side. To read more about it, go here.

However, you might have young kids in your party or other family members who prefer to take things a bit easier. Aquatica has plenty to keep them busy, too, while the braver souls head off for the excitement of Ihu's Breakaway Falls and the other water slides.
