Last Saturday, January 12th, we went to Monster Jam at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. This was the first stop on this tour, and they have themed it a bit this year. Fire and Ice. El Torro Loco Ice vs. Zombie Fire. Overall, this is a fun show. There are some new drivers participating and that is great to see.
The day begins with the Party in the Pits. It’s always fun to meet the drivers, but very crowded. We didn’t make it there in time for this due to illness, but it has been fun in years past.
The Monster Jam competition is divided into 3 sections; race, 2 wheel challenge, and freestyle. The drivers compete to get points. the most points wins the night. That means, there are winners of each section, and an event champion.
My favorite section to watch is the freestyle as it’s up to the drivers as to what they do in the 120 seconds given them. Backflips in a monster truck are the coolest things to see. Defying gravity at its finest.
Epic fails are also amazing to see…as long as the drivers are okay, of course.
Monster Jam is great fun for the entire family, but is loud, so I made the boys wear ear plugs. I definitely recommend it for families that love motorsports…or big trucks doing amazing things!
