Megladon at Amalie Arena

Monster Jam Returns to Tampa’s Amalie Arena!

Monster Jam is roaring back into Tampa Bay at Amalie Arena for two days of action-packed, unforgettable competitions that will leave every kid and kid at heart in absolute awe on August 17 and 18, 2024. If you haven’t been, it’s a must-experience!

What can you expect at Monster Jam?

Monster Jam is a real competition. Nothing is scripted, so anything can happen! The 12,000-pound Monster Jam trucks push all limits in Freestyle, Skills, and Racing competitions while doing backflips, vertical two-wheel skills, and racing at speeds up to 70 miles per hour. It features world-class athletes locked in intense competitions of speed and skill. Fans will get to witness heated rivalries, high-flying stunts, and fierce head-to-head battles for the Event Championship.

It’s pretty exciting to watch whether you’re a Monster Jam fan or not. Fans of all ages will have a blast cheering on the brightly colored, uniquely themed trucks!

The Pre-Show: Monster Jam Pit Party

We highly recommend attending the pre-show Monster Jam Pit Party! The Pit Party is a chance for you and the kids can get up close and personal with the trucks and even meet the drivers which is always a hit for the youngest fans! There are plenty of awesome photo opportunities as well, so keep that phone ready.

Fans can see the massive trucks up close, meet their favorite drivers and crews, get autographs, and take pictures.  Activities include the Sand Box play area, UNOH tire demonstration, coloring and temporary tattoo station, and new photo ops, including the chance to take a photo with the championship trophy!

You can purchase Pit Party tickets which start at $20 + fees with your Monster Jam show ticket or after you’ve already bought your tickets. Buy Pit Party Tickets here.

When you finally bring together your Hot Wheels Monster Truck and the real thing! Woohoo!

Monster Jam: The Tampa Show

The all-star lineup for this year’s show will feature multiple fan favorites including reigning Monster Jam World Finals Skills champion and Stadium Series Blue champion Tyler Menninga behind the wheel of the black and green wrecking machine, the legendary Grave Digger. MJ Solorio grabs the bull by the horns in El Toro Loco, keeper-of-the-beast Tony Ochs roars into the race for the championship in ThunderROARus, and Jamie Sullivan will put the pedal to the medal driving Monster Mutt Dalmatian.

Also eturning this year is the father-son duo, Matt and Nick Pagliarulo, drivers of Jester and Kraken, and the DIGatron! Driven by Tristan England, which made its debut last year.

Monster Jam and Hot Wheels

Another really cool thing is for kids to see their Hot Wheels Monster Trucks in real life! You probably have a growing collection of the Hot Wheels trucks, so bring them with you! The kids will get a total kick out of it. If you forget…don’t worry because they’ll have plenty for sale at the event along with other fun themed merch!

Do you need hearing protection at Monster Jam?

You’ll definitely want to invest in some of those noise reducing headphones for your kids because it can get loud (obviously). You can purchase them at the show or bring your own. The little foam inserts work great too and are much more cost effective.
