    What is the word to use, when a child goes to the top of the playground slide and slide to the ground?

    "Lapsi nousee liukumäen huipulle portailla ja putoaa (liukuu? valuu?) maahan" (?)

    Putoaa would imply that the child has an accident. Lapsi kiipeää liukumäen päälle/huipulle portaita pitkin ja liukuu alas. Huipulle has associations of great height.
