Ihu’s Breakaway Falls officially opens tomorrow (5/9/14) at Aquatica here in Orlando! This slide the one of a kind, and the only slide to have three breakaway boxes that hurls the riders 128 feet to the bottom! This slide is the tallest, steepest slide with multiple drops in the US! Here are some facts about the slide!
- Ihu’s Breakaway Falls™ features the tallest, steepest, and only multi-drop tower slide of its kind in Orlando.
- Those who dare to brave Ihu’s Breakaway Falls™ will experience an almost vertical drop for nearly 40 feet, the steepest slide of its kind in Orlando.
- Ihu’s Breakaway Falls™ is the longest water thrill slide of its kind featuring three “breakaway boxes” – orange, green, and blue — and one open slide – purple – offering four completely different slide paths.
Drop more than three stories and slide for 420 feet, the longest of the four slides, on the orange slide.
The green slide path has the shortest drop, but it’s still a 28-foot fall – that’s the same as four seven-foot tall basketball players!
Fall from the blue slide if you’re looking for the steepest slide with a breakaway box.
While the purple slide isn’t a true drop slide, it is by no means a “chicken slide”. In fact, this open-aired slide is the steepest of all four slides.
Once the floor disappears, riders will drop 20-24 feet per second.
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.
