So – when it comes to being a 3-year-old boy, there’s not much that could top monster trucks and super heroes – except a combination of both. So when I heard that the Iron Man and Spider Man monster trucks were making an appearance at Monster Jam in Anaheim, California, this weekend, I had to get tickets for my own little monsters.
I had originally planned to attend Marvel Monstergeddon when we saw the preview for Marvel’s line of monster trucks at Comic Con San Diego 2011. When the event was mysteriously canceled, I had no choice but to find another outlet for the monster truck/super hero loving kid in my life.
This is the first Monster Jam I’ve ever attended. We decided to get Pit Passes to make the most of the excitement. At $10 a pop, it was almost worth it. Not only were the trucks and drivers available for photographs and up-close amazement, there was also a team of pro BMX racers doing stunts on the sidelines. Not much else a 3-year-old could ask for.
The show was way louder than expected – so I’m glad they sold tire-shaped head phones for the kids.
The event appeared to be sold out – and for good reason. I have to hand it to Feld for creating such awesome entertainment for the boys in my life. We attended a Nuclear Cowboyz show last year, and had a similarly rocking experience.
How I know my son had a good time? He cried when it was over.
Official mama assessment? A little pricey, but worth it. Especially when I’m pretty damn sure it was an experience he will never forget.
