    It depends on the position of your body- if your arms are at the front (you're going head first) then you could pull. Otherwise, I'd use push.

    I was wondering,

    How can you pull yourself down when you are coming down a slide? Someone else can probably pull you down a slide.

    You can push yourself down a slide.

    But not very sure whether I am right.
