Why can't a child sit on my lap when using the water slide?

The water slide manufacturer requires that all guests use the slide one person at a time, feet first on the back. This prevents the potential injury to the neck or back. When a guest uses the slide with a child on their lap, it increases the risk of the guest to have a neck or back injury in addition to the child potentially slipping off the person and becoming severely injured. The flow of the water slide also increases the potential of injury when more than one guest uses the slide at a time and can result in multiple guests becoming injured.
