Monster trucks, monster fun

If you’re taking the grandkids to the Gold Coast for a short break and a theme park or two– you might want to choose 21 October.

The most action-packed and full-throttle family fun motorsport in the world roars into the Gold Coast for the first time ever on that date.

Monster Jam, which organisers bill as the most unexpected, unscripted and unforgettable motorsports experience for families and fans in the world.

It roars into the Gold Coast (for the first time ever) for an adrenaline-charged weekend at Cbus Super Stadium on October 21.

The dirt-tearing spectacle is back in Australia after six years away – and we have missed them!

At Monster Jam, world champion athletes and their 12,000-pound monster trucks tear up the dirt in wide-open competitions of speed and skill.

A stadium-only event, the competition is the biggest, boldest and loudest of its kind.

In addition to seeing heated rivalries, high-flying stunts and fierce head-to-head battles, Gold Coast fans will witness the Australian debut of four Marvel Monster Jam trucks: The Amazing Spider-Man, Iron Man, Black Panther, and Thor face off against fan favourites the legendary Grave Digger®, El Toro Loco®, Max-D and Megalodon® in Freestyle, Skills and Racing competitions.

This year’s Monster Jam event features skilled athletes fighting for the event championship while putting on a spectacle, constantly innovating and always entertaining.

Monster Jam drivers are trained, world-class male and female athletes who have mastered not only the physical strength and mental stamina needed to compete, but the vital dexterity to control 12,000-pound machines capable of doing backflips, vertical two-wheel skills and racing at speeds up to 70 miles-per-hour to produce jaw-dropping, live motorsports action seen around the world.

Some impressive Monster Jam facts include: Each engine delivers about 1500 horsepower; it takes 1500-man hours to build and remove a track; 113 litres of paint are used to paint the track and obstacles.

If the competitions aren’t enough, there will be a Monster Jam ‘Pit Party’ from 9am – 11:30am, the only place that allows up close access to the Monster Jam teams.

Fans will get to see the massive trucks up close, get an inside look into how they’re built, meet their favourite drivers, take pictures, get autographs, and so much more.
