About the show
The high octane MONSTER JAM is a stunning family show consisting of the coolest monster trucks and Freestyle Motocross with some of the world's best drivers, sickest tricks and craziest stunts.
MONSTER JAM is one of the biggest and most popular entertainment events in the US running around 250 shows and selling 2.3 million tickets annually. The Derby show will see the appearance of the iconic Grave Digger, the return of Maximum Destruction and Madusa, plus the crowd favorites Monster Mutt and El Toro.
A monster truck is approximately 11 feet tall and 12 feet wide. They are unique custom-designed machines and weigh a minimum of 9,000 pounds. The tires alone are 66-inches tall! Monster trucks are built for short, high-powered bursts of speed; these beasts generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Monster trucks can jump a distance 110 to 115 feet (a distance greater than 14 cars side by side) and up to 25 feet in the air.
The monster trucks compete in two different competitions – side-by-side racing and freestyle. Side-by-side is the traditional format – the first truck, with the least penalties, across the line is the winner. The freestyle competition allows drivers a limited amount of time on the open floor to show off their skills and outrageous tricks, jumping and crushing as many obstacles as possible.
The show runs for approximately 2 hours.
