Firefighters performed an annual drill this past weekend to prepare for a rescue of passengers on SeaWorld's 320 foot tall Skytower.
In the ride's 40 year history, guests have never needed to be evacuated, but the ride has suffered long mechanical failures which have nearly required such actions in the past.
Firefighters used cables to slide from the cabin to safety below.

That is one rescue I'd never want to be a part of. I'm too afraid of heights.
