People were excited in the Detroit area because the parks department was bringing back a favorite attraction from people's childhood: the big Belle Isle Park slide. But this enormous metal slide was waxed and was sending kids down so fast, that they caught air, and hurt themselves when they hit the ground.
Most accounts say the new slide was closed within an hour.
Who would have thought a crisco-covered metal slide would be dangerous? Umm. Everyone.
How did this get the thumbs up? Apparently, they hope to re-open the slide with less slippery wax. (Morgan and Morgan should buy a billboard right next to this thing.

Remember that Sponge Bob episode?
