Having never been to anything even remotely “Monster Truck” we investigated what we could expect by trawling through YouTube videos. What a spectacle this promised to be.. We were pretty excited to be heading to AAMI Park to see the transformation of the soccer pitch and really see what all the hype was about!!!
The stadium was filled with “super fans”… They all looked and sounded like they knew exactly what was going on, who was who, and what was what! The atmosphere was electric, our hearts were bursting…
‘The 3.5 meter tall, 5 ton machines will bring you to your feet, racing and ripping up a custom-designed track full of obstacles to soar over or smash through! Monster Jam provides quality entertainment tailored perfectly for your family’s budget, and these colourful, larger-than-life beasts are sure to capture the hearts of both young and old’
The trucks stormed out onto the dirt track, to pumping music, and fireworks. People were on their feet, waving flags, and screaming!! Time trials began and created mayhem in the seats, the kids were going nuts! “Who’s gonna win mum?” was shrieked many times over the incredible sound of the revving engines. The noise was unbelievable… You could feel it right inside your chest!
The trucks were as enormous as the sound coming out of them, and to see them gliding through the air and flipping upside down was like nothing we have ever experienced. Honestly, who knew the Wilson’s would become Monster Truck super fans?
The whole show is electrifying; the trucks, the motorbike stunts, the commentary, the crashes, the flips, the fireworks; they all made Saturday a night to remember!
The tour is heading to Sydney next, so all you Sydney siders look out. Arrive early for some photos with the trucks, and to get some autographs! Grab your ear defenders, a wallet full of cash, research your trucks and charge up your phone so you can score your favourite trucks online right there in your seat! (info at the stadium)
