Monster Jam This Saturday in Orlando

Monster Jam roars into Camping World Stadium in Orlando this Saturday, January 19, 2019. The 2019 season of Monster Jam®, the unexpected, unscripted, and unforgettable family-friendly motor sport, will bring a new level of high-flying, four-wheel excitement to the entire family with racing, two-wheel skills and freestyle competitions.

When I first started going to Monster Jam events as an invited Feld Ambassador*, I was initially curious. I’m not exactly the rough-and-tumble type. That said, I was certain my son and husband would like it, so I was happy to go and we had a great time!

Fast forward to today. Watching the excitement of the Monster Jam competition and hanging out for every minute of the Party in the Pits is a highlight of my year. It’s really a load of fun, and seeing the looks on kids (and adults!) faces is priceless.

First stop: Party in the Pits. No other sport has such a one-on-one “festival” before every competition. Fancy a photo with a fun character (like Curly the Cone from Dairy Queen pictured above!)? Check. Want your favorite driver’s autograph and a picture? Check. Want to watch motorcycles and their daredevil drivers put on a high-flying show? Check. Enjoy looking at cool products (like a row of the latest fully-loaded 2019 Fords!)? Check! Plus there there’s an opportunity for kids to buy a Lowes Build-a-Truck kit and hammer it up right there!

On Saturday, expect more than 12 trucks and drivers vying to be the Orlando champion, including:

Grave Digger driven by Adam Anderson; El Toro Loco driven by Scott Buetow; Great Clips Mohawk Warrior driven by Bryce Kenny; Brodozer driven by Colt Stephens; Max D and Monster Mutt Dalmatian driven by husband-wife competitive duo Neil Elliott and Candice Jolly; Earthshaker driven by Steven Thompson; Time Flys and Wildflower driven by father-daughter competitors Kelvin and Rosalee Ramer; Xtermigator driven by JR McNeal; Zombie Ice driven by Paul Strong; Saigon Shaker driven by Ryan Disharoon and more.

(Trucks/drivers subject to change without notice.)

WHEN: Saturday, January 19, 2019

Pit Party Early Access starting at 1:30p. The Pit Party runs from 2:30– 5:30p

WHERE: Camping World Stadium, 1610 W. Church Street, Orlando, FL 32805

Monster Jam drivers are trained, world-class male and female athletes who have mastered not only the physical strength and mental stamina needed to compete, but the vital dexterity to control 12,000-pound machines capable of doing backflips, vertical two-wheel skills and racing at speeds up to 70 miles per hour to produce jaw-dropping, live motor sports action seen around the world.

Want some fun family action? Bring your kiddos, your friends, and anyone else who enjoys heart-pounding excitement.

Monster Jam Rolls Into Orlando 

Monster Jam rolls into Orlando at Camping World Stadium on Saturday, January 20, 2018. Gates open at 5 p.m., opening ceremonies are at 6:30 p.m., and racing starts at 7 p.m. Fans can catch some of the show’s BIGGEST stars around Orlando THIS Thursday.

I was invited to attend the Tampa show* as a Feld Ambassador in anticipation of the Orlando show. Though I didn’t personally attend (due to circumstances beyond my control), my husband, 10-year-old son and a friend of ours were there and sent me photos and video play-by-plays. It’s exciting even when enjoying it vicariously, lol.

They absolutely loved the pre-event Party in the Pits where they got autographs and photos and had loads of fun.

They’re going to try and see them again this week.

Seven of the giant monster trucks from Monster Jam®, will be on display in Orlando this Thursday, January 18. For fans, it’s a chance to see and take pictures with the enormous trucks before these beasts roar into Camping World Stadium on Saturday, January 20. Best part, it’s all free to the public.

Approximately 12 feet tall and about 12 feet wide, Monster Jam trucks are custom-designed machines that sit atop 66-inch-tall tires and weigh a minimum of 10,000 pounds. Built for short, high-powered bursts of speed, Monster Jam trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Monster Jam trucks can fly up to 125 to 130 feet (a distance greater than 14 cars side by side) and up to 35 feet in the air.

Note: They FLIP sometimes, too! My family sent me video of one of the night’s biggest end-over-ends. WOW. It never fails to make the heart race!

The Party in the Pits is one of our favorite parts of the entire experience. You never know who you’ll get to meet in person. I enjoyed listening to Madusa talk about the women of Monster Jam. She was such a class act expressing her gratitude for Dennis Anderson, Grave Digger, and all of the Feld Entertainment team who made it possible for all of the women who came before her and who will follow in her footsteps, er, tire tracks in the years to come.

*Due to Dennis Anderson being hospitalized, it is unknown whether or not his truck will be at its scheduled Orlando viewing destination. I know I for one send him every healing thought and wish.

In case you’re wondering who we’re rooting for this season, we’re especially hoping Chad soldier-fortune-with-danielFortune of Soldier Fortune and Soldier Fortune Black Ops do well.  We appreciate how their trucks pay tribute to the men and women who serve in our armed forces (though neither will be in Orlando). Two of our favorites that will be at the Camping World Stadium: Team Hot Wheels driven by Scott Bueto (What 9-year-old doesn’t cheer for Hot Wheels?!) and Madusa!

If you’ve never given this giant-tired, loud-noise-generating, cheer-inducing event a try, make this the year you buy tickets. It’s tons (and I mean that literally) of family fun!

MonsterJam Roars into Orlando THIS WEEK

MaxDJump

Talk about exciting! Max-D jumped over three Monster Trucks!

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!

family at monster jamWe 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:

Cheer for Monster Mutt1. 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!

Monster Jam Rolls Into Orlando This Weekend

Monster Jam for blogHeart-pounding excitement awaits you at Monster Jam® at the Orlando Citrus Bowl Stadium for a show at 7 p.m. this Saturday, January 24, 2015. Drivers compete in a timed qualifying round, the obstacle course, and the ever-wild freestyle event.

I’m not going to lie. I’m a “girly” girl. I like to get gussied up to go to the Orlando Philharmonic and could spend hours watching the dolphins swim gently by at SeaWorld. With the exception of attending a Magic game, or when my son is too far ahead of me on his bike, you’ll be hard-pressed to ever find me screaming at the top of my lungs…until you get me at a Monster Jam event, that is! Then “the voice” kicks in, and I don’t mean my singing pipes!

The first round is where drivers vie for the quickest qualifying time. Monster Jam events happen concurrently around the country, so there are drivers aiming for the shortest times and those all-important points. It’s kind of like compulsory figures in ice skating, that athletes have to do well to be in good standing. (Showing my “usual” interest and my *cough* age.) In the Tampa Monster Jam event we attended, Monster Energy “skated” through the course in 25.173 seconds with El Toro Loco “gliding” in at 25.492.

In between the events, young ATV drivers show their stuff as they race around the track. Color me impressed with the skill and determination of the young racers!

Monster Jam Obstacle Course was next where Monster Mutt won with Hooked right on his heels. In Freestyle, however, I did my most shouting. Some of it was willing the behemoth vehicles NOT to flip over (and if they did, to flip BACK to their wheels-on-the-ground position). At other times, it was “at” the judges (who did not—IMHO— give Madusa and  Monster Mutt their due after being the only two drivers to attempt the huge ramp backflips).

Suffice it to say, if you “think” Monster Jam isn’t your thing, give it a try. If you have kids who love racing excitement (and Hot Wheels!)… take them. And if you have a husband or partner who wants some loud racing, truck flipping, dirt flying excitement…. Well, you get the picture!

Trucks appearing in the all-new Orlando Citrus Bowl Stadium are:

  • Grave Digger® driven by Chad Tingler
  • Scooby-Doo™ driven by Brianna Mahon
  • Max-D℠ driven by Tom Meents

Monster Jam Orlando Trivia:


A crew of eight works 18-20 hours a day for three straight days to construct a monster truck course!

For the Orlando show, work begins tomorrow morning at 11 a.m.

The entire surface of turf at the Orlando Citrus Bowl will be covered with a wall-to-wall protective polyurethane product. Each sheet of product is 20’ long, 5’ wide and ¼”
thick, and weighs 130 pounds. The work team uses a carpet-pulling device to make a tight seal above the turf.

Dump trucks make more than 200 trips to deliver the dirt

Stadium officials and architects consulted Monster Jam in the development of the $3 million+ Orlando Citrus Bowl’s all-new South End tunnel, which provides Monster Jam with easier access in and out of the stadium.

Each year 700,000 cubic yards of dirt are used to put on Monster Jam events.

The Orlando Citrus Bowl track is approximately 230’ wide by 360’ long.

Once the event ends, the dirt move-out process starts immediately.  All dirt and field protection product is generally completely removed within 20 hours after the Monster Jam event concludes.

Tampa Monster Jam show in exchange for this honest review.

Monster Jam Coming to Orlando Next!

This past weekend our family went on an exciting adventure: Our first Monster Jam® event. We received complimentary tickets courtesy of Feld Motor Sports in exchange for an honest review.  It was my husband’s birthday, and both he and my son were “beyond” thrilled that THIS would be how we’d celebrate. Having never even seen even a Monster Jam video prior, I was a little less excited. I should have been!

Before the main event, we got to meet and greet lots of drivers and see the trucks up close at the “Party in the Pits” (a separate event with tickets distributed at area sponsors or on race day, if available, for a fee).

I knew the trucks would be huge, but seeing my child (who’s tall for his age) come up “short” next to just the tires was quite amazing. The festival-like atmosphere was great fun and tons of families waited in lines to either get autographs, experience truck rides or bounce in a bounce house (the kids, not the grownups!).

parade of monster trucksWe caught the parade of trucks as they rumbled past us into the stadium. My son grinned from ear to ear as he reported how his chest “felt” them go by.

After the Monster Jam Party in the Pits we went into the stadium. The excitement was palpable, and fans eagerly awaited the racing and freestyle.

The 16 Monster Truck racers paired off two at a time, with the winner going to the next round. Newby here did not quite follow who was doing what, but it was fun to watch and in the end Dennis Anderson drove Grave Digger to win his third straight racing championship on the Road to Monster Jam World Finals XV in Las Vegas, March 20-22, 2014. (Now THAT’s a competition I’d love to see!)

The BEST part was the freestyle. I kid you not, I was holding my hand over my mouth at half the stunts, a worried look in my eyes. (Hey, I put the “mommy” in SeaWorld Mommy and I thought for sure someone was going to get hurt!) Amazingly, though, all drivers triumphantly exited their bashed in, banged up, and crushed down trucks. Can you believe THIS guy driving the Phantom truck remained unscathed.

My boys are already talking about making Monster Jam a yearly pilgrimage. Although usually a “girly girl,” I, too, have caught the monster truck bug and can’t wait to see another show. From the Party in the Pits fun and all through to the last crushed vehicle, we had a roaring good time!
