Today’s invention is a waterslide made with articulating sections and at the bottom end of which is an inflatable boat.
Water is directed into the top end and diverted to either side of the tube periodically. This deflects the slide and diverts the boat, accommodating the slide’s bottom end, around the pool. The boat, being rubber, presents no danger to people swimming in the larger pool.
Users jump in and experience some surprise when they eventually emerge safely into the water-filled inflatable boat which has since changed its location.
