The Academy Awards May be on Sunday March, 4th, but the big event of the weekend is once again taking over All State Arena March 2-5th!
Monster Jam is back in Chicago, and if you’ve been before then you know it’s time to get pumped up for a wild, loud, exciting show that always entertaining and is never predictable…. Kind of like the end of last years Academy Awards!
If this is your first year and you’re thinking about Monster Jam, let me fill you in on what to expect.
Monster Jam®, is an adrenaline-charged motorsports experience that roars into the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., March 2-5, for six action-packed shows.
We’re talking Monster Trucks flying through the air that look like they are going to land in your ap, because there is no bad seat at All State for this show!!!
Approximately 12 feet tall and about 12 feet wide, Monster Jam trucks are custom-designed machines that sit atop 66-inch-tall tires and weigh a minimum of 10,000 pounds. Built for short, high-powered bursts of speed, Monster Jam trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Monster Jam trucks can fly up to125 to 130 feet in distance and up to 35 feet in the air.
But wait there’s more!!! Because when the Monster Trucks aren’t tearing All State to pieces, : Monster Jam Speedsters, Monster Jam ATVs take over as they race and fly through the air.
NOTE- Dear FELD Entertainment, I know a DAD who would love one of the Grave Digger Speedsters for a Father’s Day gift. I would be the coolest dad at 3rd grade pick up. Just sayin’.
Anyway, these world-class athletes vying to be the Chicago-area champion are: Colton Eichelberger from Paxton, Ill., son of 11-time Monster Jam World Finals champion, Tom Meents, driving Max-D; 19-year-old Tyler Menninga driving Grave Digger, arguably the most famous Monster Jam truck of all time; one of two female driver-athletes in the field, Kayla Blood, driving El Toro Loco; Myranda Cozad driving crowd-favorite Scooby-Doo; Bari Musawwir, Monster Jam’s first-ever Young Guns Shootout winner, driving Zombie; former Apache helicopter crew chief Tony Ochs, driving Soldier Fortune Black Ops; Trent Montgomery driving Megalodon, and Jack Brown driving the popular Monster Mutt Rottweiler.
Dad’s, kids, moms, Grandparents, weird neighbor kids, they will all have a great time, yelling cheering and watching in amazement at Monster Jam! Ticket prices start at $25 and as I said, there really isn’t a bad seat in the house.
Note #2- Bring noise canceling headsets it’s super, duper loud.
Note #3- Eat before you go. $20 for popcorn with a Grave Digger hat you can eat out of, no bueno.
