Flying trucks @MonsterJam

monster jam trucks
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.

Disney's live show Phineas and Ferb was entertaining


We had a fabulous time watching Disney's live performance, Phineas and Ferb when they came to Roger's Centre, Toronto last weekend.  This show was very entertaining and engaging for children and adults.  We liked the music, energy, the songs, costumes and the liveliness of the show. 
About 10 minutes before the show started some of the performers got our attention by asking questions related to Phineas and Ferb.  My daughter knew the answer from the TV series, which made her more excited.  
My son was looking forward to see Perry from the start, so he was excited when Perry the Platypus entered the show in the midst of the audience with lights flashing and bodyguards around him.  
My son's favourite part was the Bollywood dance; he found it quite funny and was laughing about it even after the show.  

The backdrop (or cyclorama) was very original and I liked how they incorporated it to the show.
When the characters came into the stage.
When Perry was talking.

Perry fighting with the bad guys and ninjas.
The monster truck, that resembles the Monster Jam trucks.  I will be posting about that soon.
My daughter likes the part when the "busted" song was played.  My husband and I really enjoyed all the parts, especially when Candace was controlled by the machine and she acted like Vicki from the 80s TV show Small Wonder.  
The show kept the audience engaged throughout, as some goodies were thrown for the audience to catch, balls bounced and in the end there were glittery paper thrown in the VIP section.  Some children from the VIP section were also asked to come on stage to dance.  I thought it was well choreographed that it put me in the mood to start planning for summer :)
