My family had the opportunity to attend Monster Jam on opening night. I was excited to take my two children, because the last time I had attended was with my husband before they were born. It was a really fun family night watching all the trucks compete.
Some tips if you are attending:
- Bring some ear plugs for yourself and/or over the ear protection for younger children. It gets really loud in the arena with the huge monster trucks driving around.
- You will want to wear some layers. The arena is actually pretty cold. Even though I took off my coat at first it got cold fast when they opened some of the entrances to the outside for the trucks and crew
- At some points during the show there was some smoke from the trucks exhaust that irritated our eyes a little bit.
My two children were pretty excited at first, but they did lose some interest towards the end. I would recommend the show for children ages 5+ but my younger one (2 years) did like it, she just can’t sit for the whole show and had to walk around for a little bit. All in all it is a fun family night and exciting to see the different trucks and watch the drivers’ skills at maneuvering them.
This was our family’s favorite truck of the night. Look at all those cool spikes!
