Father and Son Time at Monster Jam

We attended as a guest of the venue


It is important for my wife and me to set time aside out of our hectic family schedule every month for each of us to have quality time alone with our children. It helps to strengthen our relationships with our children while giving them a chance to open up to us about things they might not when all together as a family. One of my favorite father-son bonding activities to do every year is taking my boys to see Monster Jam at Angel’s Stadium. We’ve been going to see the show every year since the boys were just toddlers, and it keeps getting better every year.



The boys and I arrived early this year to attend the pre-show “pit party.” It was one of our first times attending the pit party, and it was loaded with ultimate Monster Truck fun. The boys got a chance to get up close and personal with their favorite monster trucks while getting to meet many of the drivers. All of the drivers at the pit party took time to talk to every child who came to see them, and they were very personable and friendly.


The highlight of the “pit party” was getting to ride in our very own monster truck! For just $10 per person, we were able to ride in a real monster truck. They took us spinning around the parking lot doing tricks and donuts with my boys and me in the bed of the truck. I have never seen my boys squeal with laughter as loud as they did when riding on the monster truck. It was truly an unforgettable experience for them to enjoy.


After the pit party, it was time for the fun to start inside the stadium. After getting a quick dinner inside the stadium, we took our seats for the ultimate monster truck show. The crowd cheered with excitement as their favorite monster trucks competed for the 2015 title. There was speeding, roaring, and tons of car crushing action in the dirt covered stadium.


We didn’t want the night to end, but we will have the memories in our hearts forever. Did you miss monster jam with your boys? Don’t worry because they are coming back to Orange County for one last show this year! Get your tickets today, and I highly recommend purchasing the “pit party” tickets too.
