Mike Invades The World
Nitro is a steel roller coaster located at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson Township, New Jersey. Manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard, the Hyper Coaster model opened to the public on April 7, 2001. Since its debut, Nitro has consistently ranked high among steel coasters in the annual Golden Ticket Awards from Amusement Today, peaking in third place during its tenure.

After leaving the station, the train makes a left U-turn and ascends a 230-foot-tall (70 m) lift hill. After cresting the top, the train drops 215 feet (66 m) at a 68-degree angle, reaching a maximum speed of 80 mph (130 km/h). The train then ascends a 189-foot-tall (58 m) hill and dives down to the left, coasting over another large airtime hill. Afterwards, Nitro enters a unique B&M element known as a hammerhead turn, a tight U-turn, which veers to the right. Traveling over another camelback hill, Nitro enters its S-curve and into the 540-degree helix. After the mid course brake run, Nitro travels over three camelback hills, followed by a final brake run before returning to the station.
