Monster Jam® in Salt Lake City Review

**I will received tickets to Monster Jam for posting this. My thoughts are 100% my own and others may have different opinions.**


Monster Jam® is back in town and we were fortunate to have the opportunity to attend. My kids had been counting down the days and they were so antsy for it to start!



I was so wrapped up in seeing the excitement on my kid’s faces that I totally missed what the first competition was called, but it was a good one! My oldest loves Grave Digger so he was so excited when Grave Digger won the first competition. My kids were thrilled to see their favorite Monster Trucks as well as see a few new ones. We couldn’t decide on one that we loved, so we ended up rooting for 4 of them. My oldest loves Grave Digger but he also really liked Zombie, my husband and I both like Max D, and my 3 year old is a big Scooby-Doo fan!  

The next event was the Speedster Racing. It was fun to see the little cars and I loved that the little cars were named after the Monster Trucks so that way you could still root for your favorite Monster Truck…they were just little cars. 


The next event was our favorite and that’s the Wheelie competition. It was a lot of fun to watch! 


There were a few roll overs, but my boys love them because they are obsessed with construction vehicles. 




Then there was ATV racing which my boys enjoyed watching. 


Next came the Donut competition and it was fun to watch, but it was also really loud. 


Then came the Speedster Obstacle Course and then the final event which was Freestyle. 




Monster Jam® was a fun family event and we really enjoyed it. My husband and I talked about it and we thought that some of the events felt a little too rehearsed compared to other competitions in the past, but overall it was a great show. My kids thought it was the best ever!


We had such a great time at Monster Jam! #monsterjam #monsterjamslc #2016 #familytime #blogger

    It looks like you guys had a great time! I just heard on the radio that there’s a Monster truck event coming to the Virginia Peninsula area soon. I just caught the tail end of the ad, but I think it’s soon, maybe in February. So anyone around that area of the country could probably check into that. It looks like a really fun event for the family!

  2. We’ve attended Monster Jam several times in my city. It’s always held outdoors on a dirt race track. My husband drove a truck during the spectator races so he and I always got in free and in the pits where the Monster Jam trucks were. I have several up-close photos with drivers and their trucks.
    My husband and I are going to Monster Jam in St. Louis on February 20th. The difference this time from all the others is that it will be in a much bigger venue and it will be held inside. We’re excited to see how much it differs from what we’ve seen in the past.
    Glad you and the family had a good time when you attended.
