There's not very much to these Turbo Force-type rides.

ya, there's almost nothing to the turbo force rides, cause KMG thought of a way to make it setup and tear down in 30 minutes.

basically just takes 3 sets of hydrulics. 1 set for each arm and 1 to raise and lower
ride design is my specialty

The KMG Speed looks like it would be child's play to take down... It looks like they just have to park it horizantaly, and then retract the hydrolics on the 2 arms, and they retract the main boom.

Most all of the factory brochures I've ever seen claim the ride (pick any ride) can be set up by two men in two hours ;-)

I think the Evolution you are thinking of (the big one in Europe) takes longer than one day to set-up, although a Fabbri Evolution can probably be set-up in a single day by an experienced and well-managed crew. The brochure for that ride might claim two men, three hours.
