Here is the view from the first hill.  It is 100 feet tall, but has a 105-foot drop thanks to a little ravine.

See the trim brakes at the top of the hill?  These were added about fifteen years ago to slow down the entire ride.  In fact, the track going down the first hill and up to the second hill was replaced in 1999 when Arrow reprofiled this portion of the ride.  A small 'speed bump' hill at the bottom of the first drop was removed during this modification.
