The ride's second and third hills are very short, and trains quickly fly over them.  This is the fourth hill, and it is much taller.  Trains slow way down as they crest this peak.  As a precaution, both tracks are equipped with anti-rollback ratcheting devices, and you can see the parallel teeth of the device behind the red train.  There is even a chain on the left side of the track to hoist the train up over this crest if needed.
