Last weekend we went to Monster Jam in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was so much fun. We received media tickets to the show. All opinions expressed here, are my own. The action-packed loud crazy fun is something we look forward to every year. This year, the line up is a little different, but I quickly became a fan of EarthShaker and was beyond excited when he ended up winning the whole competition!! The donut competition, wheelie competition, freestyle competition and everything in between had us up on our feet cheering and excited.
It was fun for us because we all had our own favorites. My daughter Brooklyn was cheering for the Monster Mutt Dalmation truck so it made for even more fun when our favorites won or did well. Grave Digger has been a family favorite for years, and Krysten Anderson dominated the freestyle competition. Overall, the night was a huge success and something that we will be talking about until we can go again next year (or if I can get tickets to the finale in Vegas 😉 ).
Another fun thing we enjoyed was voting! Instead of having a judges panel this year, they let the audience vote through a website to score the trucks for various things. We all loved the interaction and trying to decide on what to vote. Be sure to participate when you go to Monster Jam!
