What does everyone think of Nitro, i love, but i what to know what you people think.

07-20-2001, 04:18 PM
I love it. I think it could use some better theming, but not counting that, its the best coaster at Sfgadv!

07-20-2001, 05:52 PM
great! my first hyper-coaster! the best thing about it is the seats because it feels like you could fly out at any moment, especially is you keep it a little loose. Very glad they took those silver wire-magnet things off the restraints.

07-20-2001, 06:47 PM
Yipee! Someone wants to talk about Nitro!
I think it is by far the best new coaster I have ridden this year.

I've ridden Talon and V2 also, and those are two good rides. However Nitro is amazing!!

The airtime is the best out there, IMO.

Its the second best, first drop on any coaster. MF is the only one better.

Great helix.

Love the way it sits between those trees, great view.

My only problem with it you ask?

Its 10 hours from my home!!!! Can't wait to ride it next year!!!

If it is the exact same as Goliath it rocks! Goliath is awesome! So are Nitro and Titan!

07-20-2001, 07:02 PM
It's really nothing at all like goliath in any way, but whatever. Nitro is one of the best coaster out there! Its got amazing airtime, and gives one heck of a ride, gotta be in the top ten!

I've ridden Goliath and it blows Goliath out of the water!

So no, its nothing like Goliath.

Nitro is unbeleivable! My first Hyper!

Magnum will always rule!

Nitro: No words can explain

07-20-2001, 10:28 PM
NITRO IS AWESOME!!!. better than AC and SFROS and steel force. it could use more themeing but i love the things on the right when you are going up the lift hill that say how high u are!!!

07-20-2001, 11:50 PM
Great ride. The airtime was some of the best of any coaster I've ridden. It was perfect, there was nothing wrong with it.

Nitro is the most awesome coaster on Earth! It's currently my best coaster. After much contemplation between Millenium Force and Nitro, the new Six Flags Great Adventure thriller won my top spot. I know that a lot of people would disagree with me on this, but I am entitled to my opinions. Nitro gives the best coaster experience ever! I just love its design (especially the trains) and layout. Who cares about theming? Nitro wasn't constructed to have ellaborate theming, so its main purpose was the thrill its riders. The only thing Nitro needs a little work on is its station. Everything else if more than perfect, but the station could look a lot better even if the roller coaster is not themed. Anyway, Nitro is the best coaster for the 2001 season!

Honan Beetch, you couldn't be more right, thanks for a great post, i fell excalty the same way, Nitro rules!!!!! and if it's not the #1 coaster next year and they give it to some cedar point coaster just because it's from cedar point, i'll be pissed, its time for the world to know about Nitro, and just how good Six Flags Great Adventure is.

If you saw the Nitro advertisement, you would tend to think that...either Goliath or Raging Bull, because they take up the bulk of the advertisement. However, they're not very similar...

Anyway, Nitro is currently my #2 coaster, and it's kind of distantly behind my number 1, MF. I have ridden it in the front and back, and it is incredible in both places. Definitely the best at SFGAdv. IMHO, and it's one of the best in the world too.

07-21-2001, 03:41 PM
2nd best of the best (MF is #1 2 me) but it still rules

07-21-2001, 03:46 PM
If nitro is better than MF it will be #1 (lol) It's a great ride, but theming is bad, but Six flags usually doesn't do good theming

07-22-2001, 12:08 PM
ya i agree.. it has bad theming.... but its stil the best coaster in the park

07-22-2001, 12:36 PM
SFGAdv is an amusement park not a theme park, therefore Nitro isnt supposed to have theming. Nitro is the best coaster i've ever ridden. It's got great air and you feel like you could fall out on the second drop. I've ridden it 24 times and I need to ride it more! I havent ridden MF yet so i cant compare but i dont think you can get better than Nitro.

may the FORCE be with you

same. the airtime is cool, and the drop is right behind the Force's. Cool helix and layout too.

07-23-2001, 09:33 AM
I guess I was the only one disappointed by Nitro.

07-23-2001, 09:42 AM
its great! gives airtime and first drop is amazing.

Until now, Nitro is still my #1 coaster! It's the best coaster this year! Who knows? It might be surpassed by another coaster, but for now, I'm enjoying the amazing rides it gives. Who cares about the theming? It's the ride experience that makes all the difference, not its theme. Nitro has one of the best first drops of any coaster I've ridden! It's SOOO smooth and incredibly fast. Nitro's explosive power is best felt when riding at night. Speeding through the woods is awesome! I love the tight helix and the airtime-filled bunny-hops at the end of the ride. This truly is a world-class coaster! It's amazing!

I havent ridden it yet so Ill give you the scoop on the "un-ridden version" It looks to me like B&M did a great job, I loved Apollos Charriot, and Im most likely to ride this beast. 235 ft. aint much but It still looks cool cause of the design. But 235 is a lot i guess, so, I think I'll like this coaster, I hope it has more airtime then Apollos Charriot, If it does, get me a ticket to NJ im goin NOW!!!!!!!!

07-23-2001, 04:25 PM
I agree, Nitro is awesome!!! It is my 2nd favorite coaster, the only one better is the FORCE..but I am happy to have nitro an hour from my house, I just go to gradv to ride it over and over

08-19-2001, 09:40 PM
What do you think of NITRO? Even if you didnt ride it. I think it's awesome.
400TH POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

08-19-2001, 09:44 PM
it's kinda hard to form an opinion when I've never been on it...

08-19-2001, 09:45 PM
nitro is insane but still not as good a medusa IMO

08-19-2001, 10:05 PM
It's awesome...my number 2 coaster! :)

Never been on it, but it looks awesome.

08-20-2001, 01:41 AM
It's an awesome ride. Definatley one of my favorites.

08-20-2001, 01:45 AM
I think Nitro is awesome...this is based on looks only.

08-20-2001, 02:55 AM
Nitro is the best Beemer I have ever ridden, but there again, it has one thing I hate about most all Beemers....midcourse brake section. If it didn't have this, it would probably be my favorite hyper. S:ROS is my favorite hyper because no mid course brakes.

08-20-2001, 07:50 AM
Nitro was awesome, I enjoyed it so much. My favorite hyper.

08-20-2001, 09:40 AM
Worst B&M hyper ever (thats still pretty good considering they are all awesome!!!)

08-20-2001, 10:23 AM
Its the best and ive been on it :)

08-20-2001, 10:44 AM
Nitro is still awesome with the mid course breaks.

08-20-2001, 12:26 PM
The best on the east coast. #2 on my list, right behind Millenium Force!

08-20-2001, 04:19 PM
Ive been on it at least maybe 50 times and every single time it gets better and better its one of my fav. coasters and the lines are never big! thank god it got put in my home park!

08-20-2001, 04:21 PM
my favorite parts of Nitro is the insane drop and in the last row on the mid course brakes. its stops the ride a lil and then you fly down a lot of bunny hops. its crazy:)

08-20-2001, 04:22 PM
It looks awsome. I wanna Ride it.

08-20-2001, 05:26 PM
Nitro looks like one of the best coasters on Earth. It is my goal in life to ride that thing (after Millenium Force, that is :))
