Magnets are scattered throughout the ride to reduce the car's speed.  In this shot, the car is literally falling straight down toward the camera, and these sets of magnets are used to control the speed of the drop.  In case more slowing power is needed, the track has mounting brackets so even more magnetic brakes can be placed on the ride.
