Just out of curiosity, what are some of the most difficult attractions to assemble? (In terms of assembly time and frustration [;)] ). I understand some have modified tractor trailer beds, but was wondering what rides do people hate assembling? Which ones are "easy?"

Well I dont personally know about this ride, but there is an inverted traveling roller coaster in Europe, I think its called the EuroStar, that looks like it would be a PAIN in the butt to assemble. Could be easier than Im thinking, but probably not. lol
Sit down, buckle up, and get ready to SCREAM, its the HIMALAYAAAAAAAA...

I think it all depends on the number of pieces and how well it goes togehter, and what tricks are involved. A barbisan dark ride is a hard ride to put up if you dont know the tricks. Actually even if you knowthe tricks they are hard. Most people dismiss them since they are back end pieces and think that makes them easy, but all the Barbisan rides are pretty tough.

No need to identify any one ride. Common sense will let one look at a piece and then know the difficulty factor, unless you are very young and an enthusiast.

The Hit would be a piece of cake compared to the Euro coasters.

How about the Flitzer, they dont even use a boom truck for it, at least on the Avalnche you do.

It all comes down the Help....I seen a few guys have problems with Inflates....

experiance is another key factor....Guys who move big pieces everyweek it's no big deal to them...where greenhelp might have a tuff time with it....

Better yet, the show could hire a Super Crew that all they do is move the big rides....so they don't have to worry about it....lol

I remember the Tobaggon not being a picnic.

The Moonraker on Bluegrass shows. It was no big coaster, but no picnic either. 3 loads and leveling the heavy center and then adding the seats with a small crane. Alot of platform to block and level. We used a transit to level the platforms. Then the huge backwall that you had to climb to assemble. The ride took a good experienced crew to move it.
