Flying trucks @MonsterJam

We had an awesome time at the 2013 Maple Leaf Monster Jam Tour when they came to the Rogers Centre.

My mini Monster Jam fans and I had a wonderful time getting down and dirty at the Monster Jam Pizza Party in the Pit, where we got to meet the drivers, ask questions, get autographs and take pictures.

Decorating the Crush Car and shovelling the dirt to make the sand mound for the show were a lot of fun for my children.

We really enjoyed getting up close to take a look at the 10,000 pound Monster Truck.  My son being a fan of trucks asked Cam McQueen how come there were no doors and how these big trucks were built.  I was happy how nice the drivers were and they answered his questions and explained by showing, so a four year old could say that's cool :)  It would have been nice to see how the inside of the truck looks.

We went to watch the show on the opening day.  I really liked how they started the show with the national anthem and then had all the trucks revving up around the track.

The 1st half of the show was a racing competition.

During a small break they had competition with three wheel dirt bikes.

Before the freestyle part of the show started they had two robots and fireworks.

My children and we really enjoyed watching the second half of the show, when the trucks did tricks and was flying over the dirt mounds.

When the trucks were changing or had to be removed, the audience were distracted by t-shirts thrown for lucky people in the crowd to catch.

It was almost like the trucks were little toys because of the way they were flying around and tumbling.

This jaw-dropping showcase of freestyle and racing competition features the largest, most advanced automotive machines in the world.

  5. My daughter wins tickets almost every year by reading books at London Public Library. My husband always goes with her and they enjoy the show a lot. This year I might actually get to see the show with them. We take ear protection so even though my daughter has SPD and the loud noises bother her, it is a lot of fun and tolerable with the earphones covering her ears. She just loves trucks and cars.
