Ihu's Breakaway Falls has been open for a week at Aquatica now, and its premiere was ushered in last week with an exciting ceremony. Click the video accompanying this article to see it.
The ceremony took place at a media and industry party held the night before the grand opening. You'll see dancing, drumming, SeaWorld Orlando officials, and an inaugural ride by Ambassador of Splash Chuck Cureau. If you'd like to see an interview with him up at the top of the tower, jump to this article.
Ihu's Breakaway Falls is a water slide with a twist. Not only does it tower above the park in quite an intimidating fashion, but it also adds an element of surprise before you plunge. On three of the four slides, you enter a clear tube and shiver with anticipation as you wait to be dropped. You'll see the others waiting along with you (ride with friends or family for added fun), and you won't know the order of the dropping until it happens.
Each of the four slides offers a different ride, so you'll want to try all of them...if you dare. Even the fourth slide, which lets you choose when you drop, is just as wicked as its siblings.
