Horizontal Extremely Fast Water Slide

Riders get blasted through the course by water jets.
  [vote for,

Movement imparted by the water jets can create speeds far in excess of that of a conventional gravity slide by spraying the rider with progressively faster water flows.

If the course were long enough, speeds of several hundred miles per hours would be possible.

Or you could just have a conventional speed producing flat water slide around an existing pool.
