Adventure Drive

Right before the cars encounter this chain lift, they pass through a set of brakes.  It is one of eight sets of brakes that cars traverse during the ride!  That doesn't even count the brakes at the end of the ride or in the station.  A lot of other coasters have one set of trim brakes or one to three sets of block brakes, but I am flabbergasted that such a small ride like Adventure Drive has eight braking locations scattered throughout the course.
