Anyone have advice on building these or a link that I can view to see how to build one. I'm wanting to build these for an upcoming rail jam, any advice is appreciated.

Are you building them on concrete or in dirt?

concrete and some gravel, they will be between the gaps of the pools

The easiest and safest way on concrete is to build two ramps connecting the two pools. usually build them 8' on both sides of the rails. Then up the center you would run your 4x4 posts which will be the supports for the rail. Frame out the shape of the rail you want off the 4x4 posts then cut the top of the 4x4's off. Throw trex on top and you are done.

As for the wall ride I would connect it to your ramps. you want around a 30 degree angle to the wall ride. Otherwise it is to steep. Use some Bathroom shower sheeting. Comes in a 4x8 sheet at home depot. Glue it on with some good glue. Your set.

i would build both of the pools back to back with no gap between them (safty first!). Start the second pool as soon as you can after the start of the rail. you can build your rails, etc. like this:
