I was provided with tickets to this event to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions here are strictly mine.
As you may know, Monster Jam is coming to the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. The opening night performance was on Friday, October 2, 2015 at 7:30 pm. There were additional shows on Saturday, October 3, 2015 at 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm. The final Sunday, October 4, 2014 at 2:00 pm.
Monster Jam stars the biggest performers on four wheels: Monster Jam trucks! The twelve-feet-tall, ten-thousand-pound machines will bring you to your feet, racing and ripping up a custom-designed track full of obstacles to soar over – OR smash through. The 2015 touring season brings more Monster Jam tailored perfectly for your family’s budget, and these colorful, larger-than-life beasts are sure to capture the hearts.
My family attended the event last night and the performances were incredible. This was the second time our family attended Monster Jam and my kids and I enjoyed the show more this year than last year. They spent the evening jumping up and down with excitement. All those big crazy trucks in action was truly thrilling. This year we understood things better. We understood that there were 4 different events:
I did not know until this year that the drivers are called athletes. They were incredible in the amount of control, technique and style that was put into each area of competition.Incredibly, fans go to be the judges. I had never been to any athletic event where the fans judged the competitors. It was so cool! If you are in the area, stop by the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia and check out the show. In the meantime here are some photos to show you some of the incredible sights you will see at Monster Jam.
One of the most incredible things was just how high these huge vehicles were able to get! Sitting in the audience I was very nervous when the trucks went from horizontal to vertical. Check out these photos to see if my fear was justified.
Three of the trucks flipped over during the competition. Don’t worry, no one was hurt. Each of the athletes got out of the cars with no trouble, no injury and continued to compete.
