Allstate Arena, Feb 7-9, 2014
Approximately 12 feet tall and about 12 feet wide, monster trucks are custom-designed machines that sit atop 66-inch-tall tires and weigh a minimum of 10,000 pounds. Built for short, high-powered bursts of speed, monster trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Monster trucks can fly up to 125 to 130 feet (a distance greater than 14 cars side by side) and up to 35 feet in the air. Monster Jam, sanctioned by the United States Hot Rod Association, is the most popular monster truck tour, performing to over 4 million fans annually at the most prestigious arenas and stadiums throughout the world. Monster Jam shows consist of three main fan-favorite elements - the pit party, racing and freestyle. BUY IT: Save 30% on all performances using code MOM.

All tickets $2 more day of show. This weekend my family headed to Monster Jam and as usual, we had a blast! It is seriously the one show my boys look forward to all year. The show runs about two hours and is almost non-stop action (with a 15 minute intermission.) The show is broken down into different rounds, such as Racing, FreeStyle and Wheelies. Then each truck is rated and there are winners. It is super fun and exciting to watch, especially being on pins and needles worrying if the trucks will flip over. Since my review is probably best described with pictures, I took a bunch of course!
