Monster Jam came to Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento Last night for the first of the three shows they are having this weekend and it proved to be a huge success. For those of you whom have never had the pleasure of seeing a Monster Truck in person they are truly extraordinary. Each Monster truck is unique at approximately 12 feet tall and about 12 feet wide, these custom built engineering marvels can really fly. At 10,000 lbs you would think their agility would be minimal, but the 66 in tall tires can manuever these beasts up to 100 miles per hour and can fly up to 130 feet with heights of up to 35ft. And last night Monster Jam Monster trucks really put on a great show.
The Monster Jam show last night consisted of three distinct sections: the pit party, the races and the freestyle. That being said the show also had a couple of great special events. For us the favorite event of the night was the Freestyle. The Freestyle event allowed us to watch and cheer for each of our favorite Monster trucks as they did their 1-min feature of jumps and tricks to show off what they were capable of. Last night, our family favorite Batmobile crashed during this event, although sadly we didn't get to see him finish it was still a thrill to see. And a relief for all of us to see him safe, my son Luke was extra enamored with the Batmobile, and when the driver emerged safely he jumped up and down and cheered.
Since our favorite was out of the contention when our close second Grave Digger won the roar of excitement from our seats went off the charts. It was nice to have all of the excitement around us, We really had a great time. One thing I really liked was that the drivers brought up their plaques and gave them to members of the audience. It was awesome to see the younger kids instantly starstruck by the men who drive the monster trucks.
When it comes to family time, finding things that making my whole family happy sometimes is a feat. With Lily being 4 and Luke at 2.5 they actually have quite different ideas of what is a good time. However, Monster Jam was exciting for both of them from the instant the engines started to purr. It didn't just get the kids excited, I don't remember the last time I saw such a big smile on my husbands face, he looked so young and happy. Monster Jam really was a family friendly event and I couldn't be more thrilled to having seen it. If your still debating don't wait grab those tickets now! Experiences like this help to reward our family for all the hard work we do everyday and build those strong bonds.
