Kids Getting Destroyed on a Giant Slide
Have you seen the footage of kids getting DESTROYED on a giant slide in Detroit last week? It’s only funny because no one got seriously hurt. But they could have . . .
There’s a metal slide on Belle Isle that costs $1 to ride. It’s been there since 1967, but it closed in 2020 and just reopened with a fresh coat of wax.
There are four big bumps you go over on the way down. Kids AND parents were going so fast, they’d ramp off each one and land really hard. So it had to be shut down a few hours after it re-opened.
Officials scrubbed the surface of the slide to slow it down, and now it’s open again. A video on how to properly ride it has also gotten millions of views.
