I’m guessing the humongous grin on my sons face clearly demonstrates his excitement and enthusiasm for Monster Jam. Last year my husband and I surprised our then, seven year old son, with tickets to this monster truck gathering in Minneapolis. As a parent we always looking for ways to have a special moment with our children. Some experiences are simple- merely watching television together snugly in front of the fire. While other times attending a special event is certainly a way to create a memory.
This year my now, eight year old son, will be the veteran as my five year old son will have his first visit to Monster Jam. As we like to say in our family, “this is going to blow your mind!”. Monster Jam is a great family event. Unfortunately, I will have to remain behind with our three year old who can’t stay up quite this late yet, but the rest of the family is looking forward to this special event. We already have several friends who are bringing their entire family, mothers included! According to the show, 40% of the audience is kids between the ages of 2-12 and it’s not just limited to little boys, half the audience is female.
Not familiar with Monster Jam? Here is a bit more information.
Monster Jam® events showcase freestyle and racing competition among custom-designed machines that
average 12 feet tall by 12 feet wide, 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 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.
