Monster Jam at the Blue Cross Arena Review



On Friday night, my husband and our two daughters headed to Monster Jam at the Blue Cross Arena. It's amazing how they can transfer form the arena into a motor sport arena. The show featured six different drivers and trucks this year.  This year there was the always famous and always popular Gravedigger, Backwards Bob(which is the only Monster Truck that is driven completely backwards), Heavy Hitter, River Rat, Backdraft, and Instigator.

The show started out with all 6 drives getting turns to jump over a line of cars and they get scored on how their jump was. Grave Digger took the winning round! The next round they compete against one another to jump over the cars and see who gets to the end of the cars first. Grave Digger again, won! And if that was exciting enough after he jumped over the cars he almost flipped his truck over, he was only on two wheels, which really got the crowd going with only being minutes into the show!

Then they had quad races come out and part take in a fun course around the arena. The two teams were Team America wearing blue shirts and white pants and Team Canada who wore blue shirts and white pants. Team America took the first round, and everyone cheered. The second round went to Team Canada, and the drive of the quad started talking a lot of trash on the US team and the crowd REALLY started to roar!! He fired everyone up, that's for sure! The final round went to Team America and the whole arena cheered and roared!

The next part of the show they had XPogo come out, Xpogo is an extreme sport team who performs tricks and and rides pogo sticks. They came out to the song, Turn Down For What, by Lil John, which made the crowd get up and dance a little! They did lots of flips, jumps, one handed turns and flips and double flips.
Then they had a special surprise the MC told the crowd, everyone waited in suspense as the large, slow moving machine came out into the arena. Slowly, the crowd watch this Megasaurus Dinosaur start to rise. First his claws came out and slowly his head followed shooting flames out of his mouth. He totally destroyed a car, by picking it up with his claws and chewing it to pieces.


They also had the Jet Pack Car come out and do a few rounds around the lap. That car was VERY loud and also the arena smelled the jet fuel for a little while after the car left. They also had BMX riders come out and do some tricks on their bikes and some trail bikes. Honestly, they little entertainment shows in between, surely do help them set up for the next item for the Monster Trucks, but really they are too many of them. My two girls were losing interest fast between the Monster Trucks and the side shows.

Next in the competition for the Monster Trucks, was the ever so popular doughnut competition. Again, Grave Digger won! The doughnut competition is to see how many times the truck can turn completely 360 degrees around. Some of the trucks had trouble with this task, but most of them were able to complete a few circles. Grave Digger completed 8-9 circles, it was crazy!


The last competition, I think is every-ones favorite. The freestyle competition. In the freestyle round, the drivers get points for the tricks, how hard they hit the obstacles, how many doughnuts that they may do, any stunts they may do, how many saves they have from rolling them selves over, and as much as the rollover is always a crowd favorite, if the driver rolls over in the freestyle round they get points deducted form their score. They also get points for doing wheelies.  They get deductions if they roll over, back up or stop their truck at all. It must be all action all the time!!


Over all, my family enjoyed the show! It is VERY loud though, so I highly recommend bring ear plugs for the whole family. My two girls who are ages 4 & 2 wore noise blocking headphones. The show is pretty long, it went almost 2.5 hours. So if you are bringing little ones, be prepared they may get tired!

You still have time to check out Monster Jam at the Blue Cross Arena, tonight Saturday, January, 17th the show starts at 7:30 pm. Tomorrow, the 18th, the show is at 2:00 pm. Ticket prices range from $47 to $22. All children ages 2 and up do need their own ticket. They also have party in the pit before the show that you can see the trucks and and meet the drivers. The time for that is today 1/17/2015 from 4:00-6:00 pm and tomorrow 1/18/15 from 11:00 am-12:30 pm. They party in the pit passes are $10 each. You can buy them at the arena or ticketmaster.com.

Thanks for Feld Entertainment for providing the tickets!
