Zip through the sky at 80 miles per hour on this steel coaster. The first drop is 215 feet and the main event is a 540-degree helix spiral. Though it offers three minutes of thrills, Nitro is best known for its Hammerhead U-turn, a feature not found on any other coaster. (Don't worry about whiplash.)
