Want the front seat every time? This rollercoaster has single cars only! Designed for safefy, etc (no more than two at a time, multiple tracks side by side). "Race" against other cars next to you. Could be more practical with a two/four seater, but the idea here is no train, just one car. Could open up a new dimension of rollercoaster experience. Six or seven tracks running parallel in a massive "ribbon" coaster. People could bet on which car makes it back first.

       once there is race involved controls are in order. Maybe there could be a break and accelerator ... brave souls win ...

       //Maybe there could be a break ...// Oooh! While there may be a few liability issues to iron out, it will be fun taking bets on which cars are able to jump the gap in the track.

       Racing roller coasters have been tried, although it looks like only between two cars. See link - I like the "jump the gap" roller coaster - shame no one ever actually rode it...
