Tips for attending Monster Jam

Are you heading out to see the coolest trucks on Earth next week? Here are a few tips I’ve picked up along the way to truly enjoy this experience.

tips for attending Monster Jam --

Pack a blanket. This is number one on my list because it gets very, very cold outside. The Angels Stadium is open and when the sun sets, the coldness comes along. Don’t worry – you won’t be the only ones with a blanket.

Bring a jacket, gloves, beanie. The works! If you decide to go against bringing along a blanket, bring along all your winter clothing instead. You’re going to need it.

Earplugs. It doesn’t matter where in the stadium you are, it is going to be loud. The noise won’t just be coming from the trucks either. The crowd cheers non-stop so it is likely that you’ll want to protect your eardrums from the screaming and yelling coming from your neighbor. It’s also a must if you’re bringing kids with you.

Bring cash. Sure, you say you’re not going to buy anything but the fact is, you will. The nachos and beer are pretty popular and the merchandise is pretty cool. I would suggest you purchase something that can be autographed, just in case you want to meet the drivers after the show. Also, cash is essential if you don’t want to get out of your seat during the show as vendors will make their way down the stands for your convenience.

Leave babies at home. I’m sorry parents, but babies won’t get anything out of this experience. It’ll probably throw them into crying fits because it can get really loud, crazy and fun – and the baby just won’t understand what is happening. Wait a year to bring the bebe because then the baby will be able to cheer right along with the rest of them.

Tailgate. Pack your dinner and bring it with you to enjoy before the event in the parking lot. It’s a great way to start the night and meet other fellow Monster Jam fans. The kids love this!

I really hope that if you’re in Southern California that you can make it out to see the monster trucks this weekend, if not next year. They are loads of fun, and what’s great is that you can go out to Target the next day, buy a bunch of Hot Wheels Monster Trucks and the kids can keep the fun going at home.

Earlier this month, we had the opportunity to meet Menace and its driver. You can also see Menace in action this Saturday, February 7th and catch the monster jam show at Angel Stadium.

    Great tips! I haven't ever been to a Monster Jam, but my dad would take my brother when we were younger. Earplugs were a must because it is definitely loud!

    Does anyone know if you can leave the pit party at angel stadium before coming back to the main event? We are going with little ones and am worried it will be too long to do both without a break.

        You can leave the pit pass, but if you leave the stadium you have to pay parking again.
