When Nitro opened it was the biggest roller coaster in Six Flags Great Adventure history and the tallest on the east coast. Nitro is another wonderful hypercoaster engineered by designers Bolliger and Mabillard of Switzerland. This megacoaster features a massive 230-foot first drop that is followed by seven camelbacks each producing plenty of joyful airtime (negative G-forces). The height of the seven camelbacks start at 189-feet and become progressively smaller as Nitro flies along the out and back layout at speeds of up to 80 miles-per-hour.
