Bluegrass' Nitro is now with Belle City Amusements. There also was a portable one at Martin's Fantasy Island Park in Grand Island, NY, but it was sold and went overseas, if I remember correctly. Almost want to say one of the west coast shows bought one as well.

There is one on the west coast. I beleive its Butlers, but nobody has been able to confim who's it is.
A few months back there was a cover shot of Butler in Carnival mag and in the back you can see the Nitro. Orange and blue in color I believe.

I May have a racked pic or 2 ill look tomorrow. As for them i believe the only one traveling (or the only one ive seen) is the former MBGS one now owned by BCA. The difference between it and KMG is it holds less people and dosnt swing as high. Fun Ride though

Do you know where Butler got their's from?

Also the KMG version seats more and it also seats less...
The 2 trailer model (FireBall) seats 24 and the one trailer model (Freakout) seats 16. The Nitro is a one trailer piece and seats 20. Not bad for a one trailer piece, but as some else pointed out it only swings to 90 degrees or so each side (thought it can swing higher). I saw Blue Grasses in Nashville the last year they had it and this is what I observed as well.
I also believe someone on here once mentioned that when swinging it higher it tended to walk?

That's frightening.

I saw BCA's this summer also. It is a good looking piece of equipment, but it definitely did not look to have the swinging degrees of a KMG Feuerball.
