An all-time favorite returns to Time Warner Cable Arena this weekend for the 2016 Monster Jam. With exciting entertainment, these colorful, larger-than-life beasts are sure to capture the hearts of both young and old. This event will feature eight different trucks including Captain’s Curse, Doomsday, El Toro Loco, Grave Digger, Hot Wheels, Mad Scientist, MM Dalmatian and Zombie Hunter - all competing in racing and free-styling shows.
Expect lots of “oohs” and “ahhs” as the 12-feet-tall and 12-feet-wide Monster Jam trucks compete in racing and free-style shows, until one truck brings home the trophy. Monster Jam trucks are custom-designed machines that sit atop 66-inch-tall tires and weigh a minimum of 10,000 pounds. Built for short, high-powered bursts of speed, these trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Monster Jam trucks can fly up to 130 feet over 14 cars side-by-side and up to 35 feet in the air.
