Monster Jam is coming to the Orlando Citrus Bowl on January 23, but you can meet some of the drivers and their trucks for free around Central Florida on Thursday, January 21.
Approximately 12 feet tall and about 12 feet wide, Monster Jam trucks are custom-designed machines that sit atop 66-inch-tall tires and weigh a minimum of 10,000 pounds. Monster Jam trucks can fly up to 125 to 130 feet (a distance greater than 14 cars side by side) and up to 35 feet in the air, so it takes courage and skill to handle these motorized beasts.
Monster Jam hit Tampa this weekend and we were invited to check it out. This time, however, my husband was able to come along for the first time. He has never been to an event. And our daughter always says that she doesn’t want to go, but she does and she always has a good time.
We were a bit concerned about rain, but thankfully it waited until after the show to rain. This was the first time I have had to deal with the disabled access processes at Raymond James. Everyone was helpful and accommodating when there is no way around the building inside the gates for a person in a wheelchair.
There’s nothing like the roar of monster trucks at the Citrus Bowl to announce a new year has begun in Orlando, and 2016 will be no different when Monster Jam returns Saturday, January 23.

Monster Jam will be in Orlando at the Citrus Bowl this weekend, but this past weekend, we had the opportunity to see Monster Jam in Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium, and it was quite the spectacle.
We got there early for the pit pass party, where you could meet the drivers, but there were so many people waiting in line that the kids decided they just wanted to play before the show started.
Gates opened at 5pm, and we were lucky to have received club seats to review the show. This meant we had a lounge area to relax in before the event started, as well as access to The Club Grill, where we grabbed a bite to eat. It was expensive, but at least the burger came with a toppings bar with items like chili, bacon, and liquid cheese.

At the Metro PCS, I, along with our family writer Carol and her two kids, stopped by the Metro PCS on Sand Lake Rd by the Florida Mall, where we met up with driver Rod Schmidt and his truck, Monster Mutt Rottweiler.
