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!

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!
