CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Parks and Recreation leaders in Cape Girardeau say the new slides helped make this year one of the best for Cape Splash.

Penny Williams said more than 50,000 people enjoyed the park after the slides were opened in June.

That's 10,000 more people that enjoyed the park during the same time period in their opening season of 2010, which was the most popular year for the park.

The department compared like time frames from July 9, the date they opened the slides, until Labor Day.
