Aquatica will be debuting a new waterslide on May 9 – Ihu Breakaway Falls, which is really four slides in one structure. They are “drop” slides, meaning the kind with a straight-down launch after a trapdoor opens under your feet.
The structure is 104 feet tall, so these slides will have lots of room to run (the slides themselves are more than 80 feet tall). Three of them are fully-enclosed tubes, however, so it is likely to be a fast, furious, and possibly disorienting journey. The fourth slide is open-air.
They are named after the park’s gecko mascot, Ihu.
