Monster Jam Was A Truck Load Of Fun
We were very excited for our first visit as a family to experience Monster Jam. At the end of the night all 3 of us left the event super pumped and excited for what we had just witnessed. It was a fun, exciting, amazing, nerve wrecking, nail bitting, sit at the edge of your seat type of day.
But first let me rewind to the start of our day, the Pit Party.
Monster Jam Pit Party
As soon as we started walking toward the pit party we knew it was going to be loads of fun. The music, the monster truck hanging from a crane, all the larger than life trucks, inflatable slides, power wheel races, truck rides, food trucks, how could we not have a great time.
We immediately went to take a picture with Grave Digger, that was a good choice because the line got longer though out the event. We also got to take pictures with Crusader, Monster Mutt (which was Alexias favorite), Overkill Evolution, Monster Energy, and of course we took a picture with El Toro Loco which was hanging from a crane. El Toro Loco was my personal favorite.
We got to meet, take pictures, and get autographs from some of the race car drivers. We met Brad Allen the driver of Monster Mutt , driver Mike Vaters of Overkill Evolution, driver Todd LeDuc of Monster Energy, Steve Sims of Stone Crusher and of course my personal favorite the FEMALE driver Becky McDonough of El Toro Loco.
Alexia and her friends enjoyed the inflatable slides and some delicious snacks from the food trucks as well.
I highly recommend adding this experience to your Monster Jam visit. It is perfect for the whole family and there's plenty of time to do everything that is available. The pit party opened from 2:30 to 5:30pm but the drivers left at 5:00 to start getting ready for the main event. Pit Party tickets are available for an additional $15.00.

The Monster Jam main event was over the top exciting. The stadium was full and everyone was excited for the monster trucks to come out and play. They started with a race between all the trucks competing to see who was the fastest. One by one they were eliminated until it came down to the 2 finalist, Black Pearl and Over Bored. It was a fun race but Over Bored came on top as the winner of this category. During this first competition we saw these massive trucks fly over dirt mounds at high speeds, some flipped over, and some even crashed. It was intense and so amazing to watch.
Then we had the Skills Challenge. This is where all the trucks competed and showed off their best stunts. Who was the winner you ask? The winner was Avenger with an amazing 2 wheel Wheelie across the mount of dirt. See for yourself!
Then came the Freestyle competitions. You guys, this was our favorite part! Many of the drivers made us gasp in amazement while others made us scared out of our wits like this one with Grave Digger...
Luckily no one was hurt...well none of the drivers at least. By this time some of the trucks were undriveable, had parts flying off, and tires blown out. This is where all the drivers gave it their all. This was a hard competition, there were several that amazed us but El Toro Loco came on top with some high jumps no truck that size should be able to do and landing an awesome yet frightening front flip. Check it out in this next video!
The Audience scored all the competitors on the skills and freestyle competitions with the use of our phones. We were the judges! This kind of interaction added so much more excitement to the event. Alexia was so excited and quick to play judge and score every competitor after they completed their turn.
At the end, the point system decided who the over all winner was. Based on the highest points the overall winner was Avenger!

Things to keep in mind:
It's an outdoor event so dress accordingly. It was a very cold night for us, next time I'm definitely bringing gloves and a small fleece blanket.
Bring cash for the pit party as some vendors only take cash.
