The Pit Party

The real excitement kicks off at the Monster Jam Pit Party, held before the Saturday and Sunday events (extra pass required for entrance). Fans can see the massive trucks up close, meet their favourite drivers and crews, get autographs, and take pictures. Activities include the Sand Box play area, UNOH tire demonstration, colouring and temporary tattoo station, and plenty of photo ops.

This fun-filled experience is a great event to bring family and friends together. It’s also the only place to access the Monster Jam teams up close and get an inside look at how these trucks are built to stand up to the competition.

Fans are encouraged to get to their seats early to experience Monster Jam Trackside an hour before start time (after the Pit Party ends). Pre-show festivities include competition previews, driver interviews, giveaways, opening ceremonies, and power rush truck introductions.

Monster Jam drivers are trained, world-class male and female athletes who have mastered not only the physical strength and mental stamina needed to compete but also the vital dexterity to control machines capable of doing backflips, vertical two-wheel skills, and racing at speeds up to 70 miles an hour to produce jaw-dropping, live motorsports action for the whole family.

Watch championship competitors like Brandon Vinson in his legendary Grave Digger and Ashley Sanford in Megalodon show off their racing skills on the track.
