An aquatic safety slide and wading pool which provides increased comfort and cushioning through placement of the slide surface atop inflatable gas filled tubes. A ramp element is connected to the slide surface at the far end of the slide to slow down and brake the motion of the user and to prevent the user from sliding off the end of the slide onto rough ground. Also, longitudinally directed jets of water are injected at the beginning of the slide to provide a positive water flow from the beginning of the slide to the end of the slide to assist the user in the slide. The cushioning of the sides and bottom and the maximum shallow depth also provides safety for infants and tots when the apparatus is used as a wading pool.
