Last night at the Sleep Train Arena, Bill, Daniel and I came for opening night of Monster Jam.
...insert awkward family photo here…
Actually, my circus clowns weren’t being awkward at all. It is just LOUD!
MAKE SURE YOU BRING SOME EAR PROTECTION!!!
Sorry, I guess I was shouting. But yes, it was loud because these Monster Trucks are indeed loud.
And seriously awesome. I won’t lie, the first time the driver of Double Trouble went vertical, I was yelling “WHOAAA!!!” while I was taking pictures.
Did I say it was loud? I did. Still it was thrilling. The drivers of each and every Monster Truck featured did not disappoint with their skill but also with their obvious love and regard for the audience.
That’s Jon Zimmer, member of Team Grave Digger.
Come to any of the shows today or tomorrow prepared to give them lots of love and I promise you that they won’t disappoint in giving the love right back to you coming up into the audience ready to share their awards.
There was one brief, scary moment that makes you realize that while this is super fun, it can be dangerous too. Thankfully, John Seasock, driver of Batman was okay and he assured the audience that Batman will be ready to compete today and tomorrow.
Lucky you, today’s show and tomorrow’s Monster Jam include the Party in the Pits pre-show experience which gives fans unparalleled access to view their favorite trucks up-close, meet the star drivers for autographs and take photos!
There’s pretty much no snow up in the Sierras so what else are you going to do this holiday weekend? Looking for some family fun that won’t break the bank? This is it. Monster Jam! Just bring ear protection and be prepared to whoop and holler for your favorite monster truck and driver because during the second half of the show that will determine the winner. This is most definitely a LOUD, family-fun event that will not disappoint.
I would also like to add that I was quite impressed with the Sleep Train Arena staff. While waiting for my press credentials, so that I could have access to take these (and more) amazing shots, I observed a number of them go out of their way to assist guests and listen to their concerns as they tried their best to meet the needs of the guests attending the show. Well done, Sleep Train Arena!
