On Saturday night the family and I bundled up and braved the freezing cold for a night of fun. Monster Jam was in town at the Capital One Arena and we were excited about going. We have been one other time, but LittleCuteLips was about 2 years old and does not remember it.
“I am a Feld Family Ambassador, and in exchange for my time and efforts in attending shows and reporting my opinion within this blog, as well as keeping you advised of the latest discount offers, Feld Entertainment has provided me with complimentary tickets.”
It was so cold, that I didn’t both to get all cute. I could have done better, but not on today.
The show was set up in competitive rounds and they wanted you to get in on the action every step of the way. Each round was a competition and we got to vote for each monster truck based on their performance. Some were much better than others. The crowd was not afraid to score accordingly either. They give you the website, you put in the locality code, and vote after each stunt. The kids really enjoyed decided what to score each one.
My absolute favorite of the night was Monster Mutt Dalmatian driven by Kaylyn Migues. Spoiler Alert: She won the entire competition the night we attended.
I was rooting for all of the women, but the Monster Mutt Dalmatian was so dag on cute. Even better is how Kaylyn was whipping it like a boss. This was the two-wheel competition.
The Barbarian gave us a good show!
We believe in showing up prepared so we had our ear protection in tow with us. There were a ton of people selling earplugs outside and they had some at concession. Not sure how much they cost. I got these super cute pink pair from WalMart and put lip stickers on them. Branding is E V E R Y T H I N G !
Back to the show, in between the Monster Trucks were the 4 wheeler competition. That was Babe’s favorite part, he loved to see how high they could jump. Peep the uniform? Yup, this is the one for team Monster Mutt Dalmatian. Each truck also had a 4 wheeler rider.
Dragon here had an obviously dope look. The detailing was crazy, it’s funny that they frequently get torn up when they are customized so nicely.
Bad News Travels Fast had a dope paint job as well. But he managed to get bad scoring news most of the night.
Stinger was so entertaining that before the night was over his fairings were all torn off and he ran over them while stunting.
The best thing about Monster Jam shows is that EVERYONE has fun. It has a way of turning everyone into a kid. Don’t be shocked when you see kidless adults and even old people. Everyone has their face in the place.
