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...
