(WXYZ) — It's good news for fans of the giant slide on Belle Isle!

Belle Isle Park announced on Facebook that workers have scrubbed down the surface and plan to spray a little water on the slide between rides to help control the speed.

"It seems to be working well so please come out and give it a try," the post read.
