Wild Mouse Brakes

I'm recreating a spinning wild mouse in Planet Coaster and i don't know if the brakes in between the hairpin turns are block brakes or trims. How many blocks are there besides the station, lift, and final brake run?

If they are meant to be to get people off in case of evacuation, then they are block brakes, and need catwalks. Otherwise, they are just trim brakes to reduce/control speed.

Not all of the brake sections on a standard wild mouse are block sections. I believe it is one in 3 that are, the others are simply there to control the speed of the train into the hairpins as the whole mouse turn section is on a downward slope. So it’s a combination of them both. This is based on seeing the operating screen at Chessington which shows the block sections on Rattlesnake. Sadly I can’t find a photo online of this display.
