Monster Jam will be in Orlando at the Citrus Bowl this week with free truck viewings in and around Central Florida on Thursday, January 21 (more details below). See and take pictures with the enormous trucks and meet the drivers before the beasts roar in to the Orlando Citrus Bowl Stadium on Saturday, January 23 for the Metro PCS, Budweiser, Circle K, & Your Southern Ford Dealers present MONSTER JAM® brought to you by BKT Tires!
We had an absolute blast last weekend at Monster Jam at Raymond James Stadium as guests of Feld Entertainment. If anyone had ever said I’d be a “Monster Jam mom” a few years ago, I wouldn’t have believed them. YES, my 8-year-old and his dad have a blast, but each year I find myself as loud as everyone else in the stands. It really is a load of fun.
If you’ve not been before, here’s what to expect:
1. It’s LOUD. If you’re bringing children, or you’re sensitive to sound bring ear plugs or protective ear-wear (like these Monster Jam Tire Ear Muffs that are adorbs!). I wear them and I can still hear some of the roar, LOL.
2. It’s fun before the event, too. Party in the Pits is a pre-event event in and of itself! Meet the drivers, watch cool moto tricks, get autographs, visit vendors and more. You can get a FREE pit pass at participating Southern Ford Dealers while supplies last. Pit passes are also available for $10 at the Orlando Citrus Bowl box office day of show, or in advance online at ticektmaster.com or charge by phone at 800-745-3000. Same Day event ticket along with pit pass required for entry.
3. The trucks are HUGE! With 66-inch-tall tires and weighing a minimum of 10,000 pounds, Monster Jam stars trucks called “MONSTERS” for a reason! Be sure to take photos of you and your little ones completely dwarfed by the sheer size of these beasts.
4. The excitement is palpable. From the doughnut competition, to the time trials to the freestyle competition, you can feel the energy in the air. With 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower in those trucks and speeds of up to 100 miles per hour, no wonder there’s a charge in the air!
