Monster Jam Returns to Anaheim!

MONSTER JAM trucks are revving it up to go full throttle back into Angel Stadium of Anaheim for six weekend events between January 12 – February 24, 2019. That’s the most stadium events in one city in the world! It’s an action-packed show, and you’ll never know when they will make that backflip or recover after they spin out of control. They’ll be judged by not only speed, but how crazy their stunts were completed. Hint: Download the app to your phone so you can vote in real-time for your favorite truck in the two-wheel and freestyle competitions.

This year’s truck lineup features appearances by super-truck icons Grave Digger® and Max-D™, along with World Finals Champions El Toro Loco®, Son Uva Digger®, Overkill Evolution, Bounty Hunter & AvengerThe 2019 season is highlighted by seven trucks making their Anaheim debut appearances including the first-ever diesel powered truck BroDozer (inspired by the popular Discovery Channel TV show “Diesel Brothers”) and the all-new truck Bakugan Dragonoid along with EarthShaker, Kraken, Bad Company, Wolf’s Head and Saigon Shaker plus the newly rebranded Monster Jam Fire & Ice trucks.

Driver Safety

Monster Jam drivers are trained 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. Wow! The Monster Jam trucks are designed to protect the driver at all times. A specially-constructed roll cage is built to house the driver, who is often sitting directly in the middle. Specially constructed seats that mold to the driver’s shape allow the work to be done with minimal distraction. A five-point harness is mounted securely to the truck to help hold the driver in position. The truck includes a receiver for a Remote Ignition Interrupter (RII). A signal can be transmitted to the truck by way of a special radio, which will shut off the engine. Each truck has a secondary on-off switch located at the rear on the frame. Other safety features are designed, built and mandated to keep the truck safe and operational. Each driver is equipped with specified safety gear, starting with the custom fitted fire resistant driving suit. The suits offer a minimum of three layers of protection. The helmet meets Snell Foundation regulations for fire-resistance while serving as part of the head-and-neck restraint system, which includes a tested and approval harness system. The drivers’ hands are protected by flame-resistant gloves which have a tacky grip side for steering wheel control. The drivers’ feet are protected by special fire resistant shoes that also include a thin sole for optimal throttle and brake control.

Pit Parties!

Fans can come to the stadium early to enjoy the Monster Jam® Pit Party pre-show experience which gives fans access to view their favorite trucks up-close and meet the star drivers for autographs & photos.  Also available is the limited quantity Pit Party Early Access Pass that provides fans early entry into the Pit Party one hour before open to the general public (at Saturday events only). These Pit Parties require a separate admission ticket, along with a ticket for the Monster Jam show. Please check your event details for the times of the Pit Party, which may be held outdoors or on the actual competition floor. Due to large crowds, some autograph lines may close early. Plan to spend as much time as you can in a Pit Party. There are plenty of additional activities for all ages to help you get ready for your Monster Jam show.

Helpful Tips! 

Sometimes the Monster Trucks are spotted around town. Here is one that I found on their website. They are free to do and you can get photos with the truck and their driver. (Photo below was from three years ago when Max-D was at a Jiffy Lube in Orange. It’s my kid’s absolute favorite!) I also recommend bringing something to protect your ears like noise cancelling headphones or earplugs. I found some very inexpensive noise reduction earmuffs for the children at Harbor Freight in the safety section for $2.99. They have other options available too. We didn’t have any problems bringing in our DSLR’s but you’ll need a zoom lens to capture close-ups of cars in the air. Closer is not always better. We have had seats on both lower and upper levels. We have fun every time, but you can’t see the whole track when you are on the lower levels. Also, they do not have the same trucks at every event so if you have a favorite you’re expecting to see, be sure to check out the line-up beforehand.
