After a video went viral, a big slide in Michigan, US, has been closed.

On a video of Belle Isle Park, kids wearing gunny bags can be seen being completely thrown into the air and then hitting the metal body of the giant slide while their family watched.

The slide in the largest city in the US state of Michigan, was closed the same day it opened.

The slide only costs a dollar to go down, but its dangerous slope got people's attention right away on social media. They wrote a lot of comments on the post that said it would be closed temporarily for "adjustments."

Later, the park staff explained that they had made changes to the slide and taken steps to scrub the surface and spray water on it between rides to help control the speed. They asked people to give it another shot.

"It seems to be working well, so come out and give it a try. For the next two weeks, we plan to run it every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m "in a Facebook post from the government.

People in Detroit were very excited about the latest announcement. A user said, "I'm pleased it's back!" 

 "I loved the enormous slide as a youngster," said another.
