Intense, Limited Run BATMAN™ Coaster Experience Coming to Six Flags Great Adventure BATMAN™: The Ride Backwards and El Diablo Headline 2015 Spring/Summer Season
JACKSON, NJ — March 24, 2015 — Six Flags Great Adventure, the world’s largest theme park, unveils a second thrilling roller coaster experience for 2015 as it flips one of its most innovative and adrenaline-charged coasters backwards for a limited time. The park also debuts its 13th roller coaster – El Diablo – during its 2015 season, which kicks off April 3.
BATMAN™: The Ride becomes even more intense as it undergoes a gravity-defying role reversal from July 4th weekend to Labor Day weekend. Guests can dare to take on an all-new experience on the world-famous suspended, looping coaster when its chair lift-style train is flipped 180 degrees on the track.

“The ride’s intensity is ratcheted way up,” said John Fitzgerald, Six Flags Great Adventure president. “Thrill seekers will not want to miss this limited-time opportunity to put their inner ‘super hero’ to the test.”

In general, it's an okay time to go, depending on the weather. Operations were pretty average, food service was awful, etc. I'd say it's worth a visit to check it out without being packed, having not been for so long. Your call.
Where did you hear the rumor of Nitro being closed? sources?

I have not been to the park since toro first opened but planning on going opening weekend. Should I expect all rides to be open? Seems like it's still winter and with less then two weeks to go until opening is the park going to be ready?
Last year me and bunch of friends went opening day, everything was open except for Ka and Zumanjaro for obvious reasons. Lines were not too bad except mid-day they got a little hairy, and operations were smooth for the most part. It was generally cold and winter-y right up until opening day last year and out of nowhere we had this beautiful 70 degree day, so it was probably more crowded than it normally would have been. I'm sure it being the first riding day of the season has something to do with it, but looking back it was one of my favorite days @ the park all year. I wrote about it on my blog.
