The design team at Hasbro forgot about the thickness of the game board when they specified the box size and wrote in the instructions that the 3D rides only need to be assembled once as they will fit in the box. I ended up hot gluing foam core risers to the sides of the box bottom so that I can leave the 3D rides assembled. I then hot glued a pull ribbon to the box bottom so I can get the board past the risers and out of the box.

I also used hot glue very sparingly to insure that the 3D rides stay attached to their bases. Except for the Gravity Drop ride, this one will not fit in the box so you assemble it for each play.

I noticed this the other day and came to the same conclusion that they didn't account for the board thickness. The rules actually say that the two coasters fit and that only the Woah Belly tower needs to be removed.

This game is full of lazy designer/production issues... I played the video game for years (In fact I STILL play it occasionally) The game has so much more than this board game represents.

I've begun re-designing the rules as it's got so much unrealized potential.

I bet the first couple of concept outlines were for a much better game and the rules got dumbed down at each monthly development meeting.

I'd like to try your variant.

You're right, it doesn't fit in the box - if you're putting the board in first. But it does fit if you put the board in last. I don't know why, but it does - fits perfectly. Give it a try. All you need to disassemble is the Woah Belly.
