The internet, and Detroiters, work quick! The Belle Isle slide has been making national news as it has already shut down twice since it re-opened on Friday 8.29 due to the high speed that patrons have
been experiencing as they are nearly thrown from the slide.
A redditor named u/ajaknna created an actual keychain to commemorate the calamity, featuring an illustration of the famous slide with depictions of people being tossed from the ramps as they descend the slide. Check it out below. How do I buy one?!
If you missed it, Detroit rapper Gmac Cash wrote a song about the near-deadly slide. Listen to it HERE.
