This staircase goes up to the block brakes section.  If a train is stopped here, it still has enough potential energy to finish the course and return to the station.  The ride was designed with multiple block brakes, so it can theoretically operate with three trains at one time, but this hasn't been done for many years.  I don't think that more than one train has run at once for quite a while.
