    Slipping down a slide, i did enjoy the ride.
    in this sentence, is it really correct to say 'i did enjoy ...'?
    is it same to say ' i enjoyed the ride?
    if so,, when can we say i did do somthing ? and when can we say it directly 'i did something...?

    It is used to emphasize the action. It means something like
    "I really enjoyed the ride"

    Yes, you can say "I did do something" if you want to stress that you really (indeed) did something.
