Unfolding Swept Part

Hi all.

First time posting here. Just wanted some help to see if it is possible to flatten this or get something very close to what is needed. Part is a tube slide, and trying not to have to have it connect with loads of straight sections. In my head it works that if I spiral the cut along the length as it twists I should be able to flatten the part out into manageable (Straightish) sections of metal that are then rolled in a spiral back to the original shape of the slide. If not any bright ideas how to make this easier?

 

Alternatively is the a way to loft something close to this that anyone can think of

 

I have attached a copy of where I am with the body as of now. Will keep trying and look forward to hearing from you all!
