Ihu's Breakaway Falls

SeaWorld Orlando has confirmed the name of the new, 105-feet-tall attraction coming to its Aquatica water park in 2014: Ihu's Breakaway Falls.

The towering structure will actually host multiple slides, and will be the steepest (and only) multi-slide ride of its type in Orlando. The attraction is named after Ihu, Aquatica Orlando's gecko, who it is claimed searches for the "biggest thrills, steepest hills and coolest spills in the water park".

Aquatica has released a new teaser video for its latest addition, which is embedded below:

Aquatica debuted in March 2008, and aims to combine the SeaWorld chain's traditional marine life exhibits with the usual array of water slides, lazy rivers and wave pools. The majority of the attractions at the park, which features a South Pacific theme, could have been lifted from just about any water park. The Dolphin Plunge water slide and Loggerhead Lane lazy rivers, though, are both designed to offer views of Aquatica's Commerson's dolphins.

The tallest water slide in Orlando will remain the Summit Plummet body slide at Disney's Blizzard Beach, which stands at 120 feet tall.
