Flips, tricks, and fast-paced competitive action. That’s what you can expect from Monster Jam, the most action-packed motorsports event on four wheels.
At Monster Jam, attendees can see driver athletes and their trucks dart through the dirt and compete in intense competitions that test their speed and skill. Looking for something fun to do in Ontario with the whole family? Monster Jam makes the perfect family road trip.
What Is Monster Jam?
Monster Jam is a motorsports event that tours around the world with their unique drivers and trucks. Each truck is 10.5 feet tall, 17 feet long, and weighs 12,000 pounds. Their bodies are custom built with fibreglass and each engine can generate up to 1,500 horsepower.
Attending the event is more than just going to one of Ontario’s race tracks. Racing is not the only thing that Monster Jam drivers do. Along with racing, you can expect to see skills challenges, where racers show off their stunts; donut competitions, with drivers competing to rotate their truck as many times as possible; and freestyle competitions, where competitors perform tricks and stunts for a designated amount of time.
This action-packed event will keep the whole family entertained!
