Come early for the Party in the Pit ore-show experience, which gives fans access to view their favorite trucks up close, meet the star drivers for autographs, and take photos.
The Monster Jam is a "high-flying, car-crushing explosive event of demolition, speed, power, and unbelievable stunts with the world’s best monster trucks and drivers whose skills provide an awesome spectacle of “rock-and-roar” that will bring fans to their feet cheering for more."
The trucks are about 12 feet tall and 12 feet wide, 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 trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Monster truck jumps can span as long as 125 to 130 feet (a distance greater than 14 cars side by side) and up to 35 feet high.
