Kudoes to this B&M Hypercoaster. One of my favorites. Another smooth ride with a great ist hill. Good Bunny hops and a long scenic ride. One of the best out there. Enjoyed just as much this time around. - Joe Schwartz

The best ride at Six Flags Great Adventure, hands down. I was expecting an awesome ride when I tackled what was my 3rd B&M Hyper Coaster during spring break of 2013, but what I got was a perfect ride with enjoyable floater air, smooth and fluid pacing. Don't skip this one if you're at Great Adventure, or you might as well not even visit the park. Best roller coaster around in my honest opinion. - Mike Brilhart

This is my 4th favorite as it has one of my favorite element, long floater air. It was much longer than Goliath at SFOG which I think makes it better. With the airtime, length, and overall perfect experience I give this ride a 10/10. - Edward Morgan

This is my favorite coaster in the world! I love how smooth and comfortable the ride is too. Another great thing I love about this coaster is the amazing capacity! I almost never wait more then 15 minutes to get one ride on Nitro. The only thing I feel like Nitro really needs is a paint job. Overall the ride is a 10/10 for me. - Joey DeRosa

Nitro, when i rode, was really a great expiriance. The only thing i will say is the first drop didnt deliver as much as I hoped. Thats proly just me though as it was rated one of the best steel coasters this year. Its just amazing start to finish and brings you on a real journey to the back of the woods. - Joey Till

There's something to be said for a ride that is thrilling, and yet makes me feel as though I'm floating on a cloud. If there was ever a Zen roller coaster, Nitro is it. I'm pretty sure if we put Congress on this ride, they'd solve our budget crisis by the time they got off. - Jon Gibbons

A great ride, made even more awesome at night. I think I have a slight preference to Apollo's Chariot though. - David Kirby
