Two brakes and six electrically-driven tires slow the train as it approaches this drop.  A motorized chain, similar to the chain used on the lift hill, engages the train and brings it to a momentary halt before letting it drop down the first hill.  The motor that drives the chain and stops the train is housed in the blue equipment under the track.
