Nitro is a steel hyper roller coaster located at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey, USA. Opened on April 7, 2001, it was the third Bolliger & Mabillard Hyper Coaster installation. Nitro is 230 feet tall, has a 215 foot tall drop and a top speed of "nearly 80 mph".
History and General Information[edit | edit source]
At the time of its opening, it was the fastest roller coaster in New Jersey and the tallest roller coaster on the East Coast. It has the second steepest drop from a lift hill in the park, behind El Toro (Kingda Ka is not counted as it is a launched roller coaster). Nitro's lift hill once featured signs on the stairways comparing its height to landmarks such as Niagra Falls, however these have since been removed.
