While I drive around the city with my kids in one of the smallest cars on the road, my daughters have taken a fancy to trucks.
Not just trucks like your regular SUV. Nope. They are wild about monster trucks like the kind we are going to see at the Vancouver Monster Jam®.
So what did I do to satisfy their interest in trucks? I got tickets to take them to see Monster Jam®, the most action-packed motorsports experience there is for families!
Watch for me at the Monster Jam®. I’ll be the guy in jeans, faded black t-shirt, and boots with two little girls wearing their best party dresses while trying to get inside the Monster Jam® trucks.
Ive told the kids to expect the Monster Jam® this weekend to be a bigger, faster and louder experience than anything they’ve ever seen or heard before. Possibly even louder than the our normal bedtime routine of screaming and crying.
Although they don’t know the names of the trucks, I’ve been describing the trucks that they’ll be seeing at this high-octane weekend event at the PNE’s Pacific Coliseum.
This year’s exciting truck lineup features Monster Jam super-truck icons and World Finals Champions Grave Digger®, MAX-DTM (driven by 11-time champ Tom Meents) and El Toro Loco®.
Perhaps most exciting to my kids is the Vancouver debut appearance of the Team Hot Wheels truck plus featuring the youngest ever female driver, 20 year old Rosalee Ramer driving Wild Flower. Who doesn’t love a monster sized Hot Wheels truck AND the idea of female drivers behind the wheel of these over-sized monsters? My kids are over the moon excited about that!
Monster Jam® is one of the only sports where male and female world-class drivers, some generational rivals, are equals competing for the same championship on the same track.
And you know how when you go to a theatre they begin the show by telling you to turn off your phone? Not at the Monster Jam®! Fans in every city will have the chance to vote for the truck winner in the donut, wheelie and freestyle competitions by real-time, in-arena fan voting on their smartphones.
In addition to the world-class racing and freestyle competition action, fans can come to the stadium early on Saturday to enjoy the Monster Jam® Pit Party pre-show experience – which gives fans unparalleled access to view their favorite trucks up-close and meet the star drivers for autographs & photos.
So if you are at the Monster Jam® on Friday night, look for me and say hello. And have fun!
