A Ride this Fast is Positively Hyper.

Nitro is a new breed of thrill ride they call a Hypercoaster, which translates into utterly over the top, speed, height, and airtime. Can you feel the hype? The seating situation is minimal—no shoulder restraints, no sides on the cars – you’ll really feel like you’re just flying through space at insane speeds.
You’re going to have little time to gather up your courage, because that first hill is a staggering 233 feet high. As you crest the top, you’re so high up you can literally see Philadelphia! But you won’t get to enjoy the view for long because almost immediately you’ll be thrust down a 215 ft drop.
The look of the track itself is one of the most mind-blowing elements of this ride. It’s so slim and sleek; you’ll feel like you’re cutting through the air on a tiny thread of steel.
You’ll be flying at 80 mph as you zoom into the second hill, up yet another 181 feet high over the treetops, and down so fast you’ll lift right out of your seat in pure weightlessness. But don’t get too used to it, because you’re about to blast into the totally original hammerhead U-turn, a paralyzing swift reversal.
You’ll face an entire mile of that slim, modern, lightning fast track, as it delivers you to a pair of gut-munching horizontal loops, a crazy 540-degree helix spiral, and then a series of camelback hills to finish you off. And that’s definitely something to get hyped about.


A few weeks ago a hole was found next to the entrance of Nitro.

It is said that, every now and then, something scrambles out of this hole and visits us. Huge, slimy tails whip through the night. Sharp points of red-forked fangs flash in the shadows. And, heaven help you, once it clamps onto your leg or creeps inside your jacket.

The creature was recently seen by one of our park watchmen, who described it as, “an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature…a pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque scaly body with rudimentary wings” before he burst into tears and began talking in gibberish (he said something like “Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn” right before he dropped dead. We have no idea what it means).

Over the last couple of weeks Six Flags has spent a significant amount of money to try to seal the hole. But the ability of this creature to dig his (or her) way out is staggering.

Guests riding Nitro are encouraged to keep a weather eye on the track ahead. Anyone who sees something up ahead with a gigantic, unkempt mouth with dozens of sharp pointy teeth should……pray for it to end quickly…

Minimum height requirement: 54″ to ride

For your safety, no loose articles including cell phones are permitted on Nitro. All loose articles must be secured in a button or zipped pocket, locker or with a non-rider.
