A 60' long waterslide off the roof of my house with a ramp at the end

sorry if i haven't answered your message on how it was made. for anyone who's interested in making they're own, here's how i made mine.

HOW IT'S MADE
the slide is made of 8 strips of ply wood 2' wide by 8' long. Underneath the slide 3 rows of 1" conduit run the length of the slide - this gives the slide elasticity and prevents the wood from cracking. about 80 L-brackets hold the guard rails on which are just strips of paneling. 2 steel cables hold the slide to the house - they're connected to the windowsill and where the back of the slide meets the lower roof. a blue tarp is stapled to the surface and a garden hose tied to the top to supply a constant stream of water. about every 4 ft there is some sort of a support structure - 2 by 4s, the van, the roof, big rocks, etc. the ramp needs extra support, we piled a ton of rocks underneath it. it's also very important that the slide is level all the way down and won't lean to the side if weight is put on it.
