Several SFMM locals have reported over at CoasterFusion about receiving an e-mail survey to get their opinion on the name “YOLOcoaster” for a future park attraction. One very very interesting question in the survey seems to give away a possible major spoiler for the ride experience. “Lets’s say that at some point in themiddle of the YOLOcoaster themed ride there is some kind of tunnel. During this ride you’d shoot into the tunnel at 500 miles per hour, stop short, wait a few moments and then fly out of the tunnel backwards the way you came in. What kind of experience would you want to have in the tunnel? Keep in mind that the ride is only going to be in the tunnel for several seconds before they shoot back out backwards. What should they experience?”
Wow… while the 500mph bit is complete over-hype… the basic concept here sounds very interesting experience may be planned for the former monorail tunnel inside the mountain itself.
Personally, I'm a little bit sad that it might not be a complete circuit; I would take a full-circuit coaster over a shuttle any day (disclaimer: I have not ridden a Schwarzkopf shuttle loop since 1999
