As Dennis said in the video, Pit Party passes are included in this year’s ticket price! Fans can enjoy the Monster Jam Pit Party pre-show experience – giving unparalleled access to view their favorite trucks up-close and meet the star drivers for autographs & photos, and for the occasional front-row seat to an interview like this one where “ICE” El Toro Loco driver Scott Buetow dishes on what it takes to win.

Get your tickets, grab your family, and get ready for some fun.

As a Feld Ambassador, my family will receive tickets to the Monster Jam World Finals in consideration for posting about the event. Opinions and excitement are entirely my own.

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!
