This train is spiralling upward toward the mid-course block brake.  If the preceding train has not cleared the course, a train can be stopped in this section of track.  There is even a walkway under the track and a spiral staircase in the unlikely event that the train can not complete the circuit and needs to be evacuated.

Out of the park's 17 coasters, only six have mid-course block brakes: GateKeeper, Maverick, Raptor, Rougarou, Steel Vengeance, and Valravn. The Cedar Creek Mine Ride and Iron Dragon have two lift hills which allows two trains to be on the course at one time.  The other coasters either have just one train, or have multiple trains but allow just a single train at one time to run the course.
