I received tickets to Monster Jam in exchange for my post.
This year we attended our third Monster Jam show in Albany, NY at the Times Union Center.
Before the 1pm show, we attended a Pit Party that started at 10:30. You purchase these tickets separately, and it is a neat event to attend. I recommend the pit party, where you get to see the trucks up close, sit on ATVs, and even meet the drivers! It is a great opportunity to get your merchandise signed as well.
One of the neat things about the pit party is to check out the trucks, which are impressive up in person.
Every year, there are different trucks, so we were curious to see which would be making an appearance in Albany, NY. We saw some we had seen before, like Grave Digger and Scooby Doo, as well as new ones like Barbarian and Dragon.
Monster Jam started off with a race, and then it was on to the donut competition.
Next was a two-wheel skill competition, followed a freestyle competition.
It is fun to see the drivers get creative and show off!
One of the cool things about Monster Jam is that the drivers and teams also drive ATVs. There is a race and an obstacle course that they complete to earn points.
At the end of Monster Jam, a winner is crowned based on the points earned from the different events.
We had a fun day at Monster Jam, from meeting drivers to seeing the trucks in action!
Tip: Bring ear plugs, which I would say is a must, especially if you have kids (they also sell hearing protection).
