Would You Get Down And Dirty At Monster Jam?

Hey Cuties,

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.

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.

Somehow I failed to take a picture of Grave Digger who is by far the fan favorite. You can see him in action in this video though. You can look up the truck names, and drivers on the Monster Jam website.

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.

    First, can y’all start a family YouTube channel??? We need it! I love reading about your family’s adventures. I’ll be sure to go the next time they come to Nashville.

    • MimiCuteLips

      I would love to do that Sheena. I have to see if I can get everyone on board. I’m going to give it an unofficial go at it. My house is such a crazy place, it makes for good footage for sure.

  2. Stacie

    This looks so fun! I have always wanted to take my kids but now they are older. Maybe the gbabies would like to go.

  3. Leslie H

    Looks like you guys had a awesome time. Being a mom of a 7 yr old girl this is definitely not on her radar but who knows ! Now I know this exists !!

    • MimiCuteLips

      I get you, but she will still enjoy it. My daughter was really into it. Grab some lunch or dinner and go out for a non-traditional girl’s day. She might surprise you. 😉

  4. Kendro

    This looks like a great event for the family. I hope they come to Chicago because I would definitely enjoy this.

  5. Nicole of NLLMag

    This seemed like so much fun. My mini me would love this. I’ll be heading over to checkout when they will be in NY.

  6. T. Espinoza

    I would have never thought to bring ear protection so I would have had to come outta pocket at the arena. Thanks for that tip. I’m definitely putting Monster Jam on my radar for next year.

  7. Lauren Floyd

    My family back home in Chicago goes to this every year. I can’t wait to join them when my little one is older. He already loves toy cars and trucks.

  8. Leslie H

    Looks like you guys had a dirty good time. That pic with the earphones would have definitely been me and my daughter ! Those huge Tonka Toy looking trucks must make ALOT of noise !!

  9. Tomiko Harvey

    I have never been to a Moster Jam but I use to ask my husband to take us but he was so uninterested in going that I stopped asking. Was it really loud? I bet the kids had a blast.

  10. Tanay Michele

    Yessss to the lip stickers! Lol. I wanna take the boys to this but idk how they’d do with the noise. I might wait until they’re a little older.

    • MimiCuteLips

      Ha! I will brand anything I get my hands on. lol Get the ear gear and they will be just fine. The first time I took LittleCuteLips she was like 2 and she loved it. There was stroller parking and it was full so the place was filled with little people.

  11. Elle

    I’ve never been to a show, but I’d love to attend one day. I didn’t even realize that ear protection would be needed, this is good to know so I can plan accordingly.

  12. ChiChi Nwizu

    I’m all excited because I used to want to go to these when I was a kid. I didn’t even know they were still around. It looks like tons of fun and your beautiful family looked like they had a great time. I will definitely be that kidless adult in the audience next time the show comes to my city.

  13. Jaye

    You are the second person who’s post I read sharing their experience here, It looks like a lot of fun and I would definitely check it out.

  14. Joyce Brewer

    I had major questions about the noise level there. Thanks for the heads up and suggestion about bringing your own headphones. I’m going to see if we can go to the show in Atlanta later this month.

  15. Jonna

    I remember when I was younger going to these events, so much fun. Especially the interactive piece. Now that I have a son, I can’t wait to start taking him to these type of events when he’s older.

  16. Carissa

    We went to Monster Jam a couple of years ago and it was a very cool experience! We all loved it!

    I would love to experience this it looks like so much fun. Love that the show is interactive!

    The four wheeler race was our favorite too! That was the point that I caught myself cheering. I had a good time – I surprised myself. The kids and my husband had a blast too.

  19. Nadalie Bardo

    Monster Jam looks like so much fun! I haven’t been since I was a kid – I think I need some new memories. Hoping they’re coming here sometime soon.
