Monster Jam is roaring back into Tampa Bay at Raymond James Stadium for two days of action-packed, unforgettable competitions that will leave every kid and kid at heart in absolute awe on February 10 and 11, 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! This is also a good option for young fans who may not be able to stay up late for the entire 7pm show.
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.
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.
Monster Jam: The Tampa Show
The Tampa show will feature some fan favorites including Grave Digger, Black Pearl, Megalodon, El Toro Loco, Mohawk Warrior, and more! Returning this year is the father-son duo, Matt and Nick Pagliarulo, drivers of Jester and Kraken.
This year, fans can also cheer on a NEW Monster Jam truck that’s been added to the lineup – the DIGatron! Driven by Tristan England, the DIGatron was inspired (and designed in conjunction with) JCB’s iconic construction equipment.
While fans will get to say hello to a new truck, they’ll also be saying goodbye. Tom Meents, the most decorated Monster Jam driver in history and driver of Max-D, will be taking his final lap around the course at this year’s competition.
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.
