Top 5 Reasons to Check Out Monster Jam This Weekend

1 It’s the first ever Monster Jam in the newly renovated Orlando Citrus Bowl Stadium.
Stadium officials and architects consulted Monster Jam in the development of Citrus Bowl Stadium’s all
new South End tunnel, which provides Monster Jam with easier access in and out of the stadium. In the
construction of the South End tunnel, Monster Jam provided logistic and size requirements for these access points to help improve the Monster Jam dirt track construction process. Over $3 million+ went into the Orlando Citrus Bowl field turf and an estimated 300 truckloads of dirt will be needed to cover the brand new field turf!

Tip: They’re LOUD. Bring ear plugs or headphones to protect little ears.

Will your kids cheer on ScoobyDoo, or Monster Mutt Rotweiller? Or is Max D more their speed?! Have fun finding out together.

5 The JAM
Qualifying heats, Obstacle Course, and the incredibly exciting Freestyle events will have you shouting out loud! You’ll find yourself biting your nails, cheering like crazy, and maybe even booing the judges a little when your favorite doesn’t get the points YOU think they deserved.

One of the many highlights of this year’s competition is participation by all three Team Grave Digger vehicles: Grave Digger, Grave Digger the Legend, and the Orlando event champion from 2013 AND 2014, Ryan Anderson driving Son Uva Digger. The superstar competitive field will also feature the return of Monster Jam’s only eleven-time World Champion, Tom Meents driving Maximum Destruction. Meents is famous for his all-out driving style and numerous monster truck back flips.
