Monster Jam Returns to Raymond James Stadium Jan 12 & Feb 2

By Laura Byrne

Monster Jam is roaring back into Tampa Bay at Raymond James Stadium for two action-packed, unforgettable competitions that will leave every kid and kid at heart in absolute awe!

We’ve taken our kids (ages 5 and 3) to three Monster Jam or Triple Threat shows over the years and they LOVE every minute of it! Here’s the deal…that I didn’t realize as a first timer many years ago…Monster Jam is a real competition. Nothing is scripted, so anything could happen! Sometimes trucks lose wheels after a stunt. Sometimes they totally blow your mind with amazing tricks you never thought was possible on four wheels.

One of the coolest parts of the competition is the guest interaction. You have the power as a fan to vote for your favorites during the competition.

Note: You’ll definitely want to invest in some of those noise reducing headphones for your kids because it can get loud (obvi). You can purchase them at the show or bring your own.

Another really cool thing was watching our kid see his Hot Wheels Monster Truck in real life! You probably have a growing collection of the Hot Wheels trucks, so bring them with you! The kids will get a total kick out of it. If you forget…don’t worry because they’ll have plenty for sale at the event!

The Tampa show will feature some fan favorites including Grave Digger, Max-D, Monster Mutt Dalmation, and El Toro Loco will be competing! We’re super excited to see Wild Flower driven by college student Rosalee Ramer. Girl power!!!

Monster Jam Pit Party in Tampa at Raymond James Stadium.

If you’ve never been to a Monster Jam show before, we highly recommend attending the pre-show Pit Party! This is another good option for young fans who may not be able to stay up late for the 7pm show. You and the kids can get up close and personal with the trucks and even meet the drivers which is always a hit for the youngest fans! Tickets

When you finally bring together your Hot Wheels Monster Truck and the real thing! Woohoo!
