Yolo is one of the worst rides to have 1 train on, the capacity is barely satisfactory with 2 trains.

The main structure may be up, but there's still a ways to go. Most of the groundwork around the ride is nowhere complete, and most importantly, the actual vehicle disk isn't even in place on the arm yet. If I had to guess on an opening time frame, I'd estimate the end of the month.

I actually beg to differ. YOLOcoaster one train vs two train operation isn't SUPER different (kinda like Xcelerator). By the time one train parks in the station and unloads, the other one has already hit the brake run. It running two trains isn't the biggest capacity difference, whereas rides like Goliath, X2, or Twisted Colossus with two trains is a MUCH bigger difference since the rides are much longer, so there is a bigger gap between trains loading/unloading.

They should unload on the breaks on Yolo, the train is sitting there before they are even close to loading the one in the station

I completely agree. Xcelerator would also benefit from this, but I doubt either park would make it happen.

It's crazy to stand there and watch the 2nd car sit on the brakes for ages while they mess around with the unload/load at the station.
