Nitro's unique trains depart from the station and begin the long climb up the 200-foot lift hill. In order to make this part of the ride exciting, the developers have mounted signs indicating the height of the train in relation to famous monuments. As you ascend, you are told that you have attained the height of the Spinx, then the Tower of Pisa, and finally London Bridge. Then the hill peaks and over you go. The drop is nearly straight down, 80 degrees for 215 feet, bringing the car to a speed of 80mph before it careens up a second hill through a tight turn and into a hammer head that turns the car completely sideways. This is followed by a series of bunny hills and a double helix, which puts you under several Gs, making it hard to lift your arms. After the helix there are three parabolas, each giving you an instant of weightlessness, before you return with a jolt to the station. The whole thing takes 2 minutes and 20 seconds and is an absolutely phenomenal experience.

The drive is about 2 hours from Atlantic City. We did not get there until noon. The first thing we checked out was the Safari since it closes at 4pm. This was cool. You get to drive your own car through. Many of the animals come really close to your car, if you feed them. You are not allowed to feed the animals, but you know how that goes. They have lots of animals from kangaroos to black bears. You get to see the animals close and at your own pace.
Then we finally got to the main park and the rides. Unfortunately, weekends are the worst times to visit this amusement park. We often visit the popular parks in Florida and Virginia and never have we encountered the looooong waits like the ones we experienced here. They should have a "free" fast pass like other parks, but you have to pay at this park. We were there until 9pm and we only rode 3 rides!! It was unbelievable. We couldn't believe that we actually stayed in line for a ride for 2 hours each! It was nice that at some they had DJs that played music while we waited, and that popular tune with the old man dancing kept a smile on our faces!
The rides we did get a chance to experience were awesome, including the Nitro, Spiderman, and Batman and Robin. We definitely got the adrenaline rush!
I highly recommend visiting this park on the weekdays and paing extra for the fast pass.
