Monster Jam 2015 Is Coming To Orlando!
My husband took our son to his first Monster Jam about 5 years, and ever since then he was hooked. Since the Monster Jam rolls in to Tampa around my son’s birthday, the following year we asked him if we wanted a birthday party or if he would rather invite two close friends to the Monster Jam and we would make a fun day of it and his friend’s could spend the night.
He picked the Monster Jam.
I will admit, I tried REALLY hard to make it a boys’ night and suggested that my daughter and I stay home, but my son wanted us to come. So we went. I wasn’t overly excited about it, but I wasn’t going to disappoint my son.
I LOVED IT.
I was actually hoarse for 2 days after from all my screaming 🙂 It was a blast. It is really hard to not get caught up in all the fun and excitement.
This year is the 4th year in a row that my son has picked the Monster Jam over a “party.” And this was my 4th year going 🙂 I don’t think anyone could convince me to not go at this point. My daughter and I sit next to each other and cheer for our favorite trucks. Hers is definitely Madusa.
Who can resist a pink Monster Truck who’s driver is local?!
This was the 1st year we went to the Pit Party and it definitely won’t be out last. The Party in the Pits is for Preview Fans – you get to go behind the scenes, meet the drivers for autographs and photo ops, and see the monster trucks up close. The Party in the Pits is right outside the stadium and is from 1:30-5 pm.
It was awesome being able to get so close to the trucks, get pictures with the drivers…and signatures even! We didn’t think ahead to bring paper or anything, so Steven had the drivers sign his shirt. He will tell you now that his shirt is worth over One Million Dollars 🙂 You can purchase a pit pass for only $10 more when buying tickets at Ticketmaster or the Amway Center Box Office. Or, pick up a Free pit pass at participating Orlando area Southern Ford Dealers beginning January 5th (while supplies last). Pit Passes, along with a valid event ticket, get fans into the Pit Area.
