We are pleased to showcase aerial photos of Nitro by Brett Bekiarian and Jerry Katula. Nitro is of course the new B&M coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure.

I'm finally glad to have Great Adventure as my "home" park! I"m still not camping out underneath it though.

Does Nitro have any block braking like Apollo's Chariot? I know it's an aerial photo but I can't see one.

I don't see one either, perhaps the ride is long enough where multiple trains can be run without the use of one?
The pics are great, its amazing how Nitro's lift hill makes Batman The Ride look like its the size of a wild mouse!

The block is right after the helix before the bunny hop return.
Although those pics are from a little while ago, so the block hasn't been installed yet.

Can someone please tell me if Nitro will have a on ride photo

Nitro will have everything a hyper coaster needs. It will have block brakes and 11 high pack speed turns through the course of it. Also, now with the new speed way, Six Flags Great
Adventure will be so better than years and parks before.
