Build a 20-foot high structure with stairs

I'm wondering why such a tall water slide and not a normal sized one like you can buy at a home center.

Build a 20-foot high structure with stairs

I have built a 8' x 5' structure on 10" sono tubes 4' into the ground. I used 4 - 4x4's as the main sturcture then built platforms like a deck with 2x10's. The soil is sand.

The first deck is 56" off the ground and the next is 104".

The railing on the bottom is 36" with 4" spacing on rails and the top is 42" with 4" spacing on rails.

The structure is 12'-11" tall. Is this enough?

This is from the original posting.
