Well I have not had the chance to ride it, so I wasn't aware of the double loading. Thanx for telling me:)

I've been there on days when they have used both stations to load (with only two trains) and they still didnt advance the second train out of the entire station untill the first train hit the brakes.
See the problem is this, if Hypersonic rolls back (which I've *personally* experienced hehehe;)) then they have to backup the train to the "weighing area", which is located directly outside of the first loading area. Therefore, this area should remain clear until the first train clears the hill.
Now what I think they should do is use the first station as a "loading" station and the second station as an "unload" station, much like on Millennium Force. Then they could run three cars with a somewhat improved throughput. But I guess I'm just not smart enough to understand how they could ever run four cars in such a manner as to increase capacity over three cars.
