Family Guide For Monster Jam – What To Expect

 

Who says that big trucks and dirt are only for boys? I am a huge fan of Monster Jam and every year I cover it I am even more impressed than the previous year. If you have never been before here are a few tips and things to expect that should make your visit smooth and comfortable!

Tips For Attending Monster Jam

what_to_expect

-The first and most important tip is bring ear protection! It is extremely loud at monster Jams and little ones can be sensitive to the noise. Some good ear protection like noise canceling headphones or ear plugs is highly recommended.

-Bundle up! It is not only cold outside, it is cold in the arena. A hat and gloves might not be a bad idea.

-Try to get your tickets before you arrive for the event. The longest lines at the arena are the box office lines AND security.

-Bring Cash! You will need it for parking.

-Make a sign for your favorite Monster Truck and bring it with you. You might just get featured on the Jumbo Tron.

-Check the venue before you go to see if you can bring food. I found out after the fact that at Angel Stadium you can bring snacks and water. We were allowed to bring outside food (food brought from home or fast food, etc.), juice boxes and small water bottles.  It certainly saves a lot of money that way.

-Watch your local news outlets as sometimes a truck or two will appear in public before the event. This is a great way to let smaller children experience the trucks who might not have the patience to sit through a performance.

-If you can, purchase The Pit Party Passes. They allow you to see the trucks up close and get autographs before the show.

-Keep an eye out in the parking lot. A lot of people tail gate before the show and we saw kids riding scooters up and down the parking lot while cars were looking for spots.

-Be prepared to sit for up to 30 mins in the parking lot upon leaving due to traffic. If you hate waiting, I suggest you leave a little early to beat the crowd.

What Will We See?

What won’t you see! Expect trucks to be flipping over, hoods will be flying off, sometimes you might see flames from a truck catching on fire but most of all you will see big trucks racing each other, doing tricks like wheelies and pumping up the crowd! Here is a sample video from our visit:

It’s an unforgettable part of the Monster Jam experience where lifelong fans are born.  Also fans can enjoy an exclusive extra hour in the Pit Party with the limited quantity Pit Party Early Access Pass that provides fans early entry to beat the crowds and have more time to experience all the Monster Jam fun!   Plus, fans in every city can become part of the action by voting for the winner in the two-wheel and freestyle competitions via real-time, in-arena fan voting on their smartphones.

  1. Can you bring food to the monster jam at University of Phoenix? And is it possible to see the trucks up close, though my small grandson has tickets for the nose bleed section?
