DISAPPOINTED

I grew up going to Monster Jam and over the years it’s gone down hill. We recently took our two children to see Monster Jam at Camping World stadium January 2019. First, they didn’t have most of the main trucks that the whole reason we come to see Monster Jam is to see all the main trucks. They have several trucks that no one has ever heard of and they were not nearly as constructed as Max-D or Grave Digger etc. it seemed like all the drivers were being cautious, they weren’t making nearly the jumps that we are used to seeing. It was also extremely annoying to watch majority of the trucks break apart after one run othe track. It was all about advertising which was also annoying. They had no half time shoe or performance which was boring. I’m not sure we will ever be back. They need to step there game up and make it more exciting for the fans.

SAD PERFORMANCE - DISAPPOINTED

Unfortunately, not much happened tonight. Trucks broke down, easily flipped out of commission, & even the music quit for some time. Not worth the money, this year. 🙁

KIND OF BORING REALLY

Very tiny arena, not much room to do anything. Just one dirt ramp in the middle that was it. My 4 year old was bored to tears and we left half way through. It has really gone down hill. Not worth the money at all.

RIGGED AND TOO SMALL OF A SPACE

First off, it was obvious Grave Digger (GD) was going to win overall. The moment you walk in all you see is GD merch. You can't even buy a bag of cotton candy without also paying for a GD mask. This venue is much too small of a space to have these trucks. There's no option to get any speed and their abilities are very limited. Bring back Bigfoot. let the voting actually be accurate. And sell things for all the trucks. Not just the one that paid you the most to host this event. BTW, we paid $20 for cotton candy (because there was no option to buy without the mask) and $15 for a snow cone (because there was no option to buy without a merch cup). This event is a money pit and not worth the ticket price. Up your game Monster Jam and stop price gouging. Then next time we may consider coming back.

WHAT A LET DOWN

Took my 9 year old son to Monster Jam at Capitol One Area in DC on 1/25. I was shocked how small the arena was and even more disappointed to see multiple cars breakdown after attempting minor jumps and tricks at low speeds. Save your money next time this show comes to an arena that is used for basketball or hockey. My rec: Look for shows in larger venues.

DISSAPOINTING

Stop doing Monster Jam at these tiny indoor arenas. The tricks are lackluster - most of the 'entertainment' is the loud music, dirt bikes, and videos on the jumbotron. If you tune that out and actually watch what the trucks are doing, it's pitiful. There's no space for them to maneuver. Glad my kids were too small to realize the trucks weren't doing anything impressive. These shows give Monster Jam a bad name. Just an advertising gimmick.

MONSTER JAM @ FRANK ERWIN

Way too small for Monster Jam. Pit Pass is a complete ripoff. Trucks and the motorcycles at “half time” could not do much. Because the place is way too small. Cedar park center would be much better. My 6 year old enjoyed it. But I think I spent $200 for 3 tickets and pit pass plus probably $100 in food, water and drinks. I will never go to such a small venue.
