Get ready to take the plunge – and cross your fingers a massive wedgie isn't involved.

Valleyfair in Shakopee is almost done constructing its latest attractions in Soak City Waterpark – six new speed slides, including two 90-foot vertical drops.

On Breakers Plunge, riders will plummet "virtually straight down" 90 feet.

If you prefer a less steep descent, Breakers Pipeline features four tube slides 65-feet high. Riders start in an enclosed tube until the floor falls out "from underneath riders sending them through drops, twist and turns," Valleyfair states.

Not so interested in getting dropped down a tube of water? Also new in 2015 is the Barefoot Beach. Valleyfair describes it as "an interactive splash pad featuring multiple water play elements such as smaller slides, aim-and-spray water shooters and jets of streaming water."

The new Soak City attractions were on Valleyfair's to-do list over the winter months, along with maintenance work on the Ferris wheel, Wild Thing and Corkscrew, according to Valleyfair.

Opening weekend at the park is May 16 - 17, while construction is expected to wrap up on the new water slides by late May, officials told WCCO.
