In just a matter of days, the sound of revving engines will fill the air around Hampton, Virginia. That’s right, from January 19th to the 21st Monster Jam at Hampton Coliseum roars in for another year of exciting monster truck action! Best of all, the most action-packed live event on four wheels is just a short trip from your home at Waypoint Apartments.
With names like Devastator, El Toro Loco, Zombie, and Grave Digger, the trucks at Monster Jam are the heart and soul of this entertainment spectacle. Each custom-built fiberglass-body truck stands around 10.5-feet tall and 12-feet wide. Weighing in at twelve thousand pounds, it’s no wonder these trucks are called monsters.
Have you ever wondered how the drivers got their start? Well, many are graduates of the Monster Jam University in Illinois. Here, drivers learn everything from safety and public relations to basic operations. These daring men and women know how to put on an awesome show because they’re trained for it.
The Pit Party
Before the show, fans can enjoy the Pit Party. Here, you’ll meet the drivers and get autographs, as well as getting a closeup look at the trucks. It’s important to note that this event requires a separate ticket.
The Monster Jam Triple Threat Series features the best Monster Jam vehicles. The drivers will keep you on the edge of your seats as they battle for points in various competitions. Events include racing, freestyle, and the two-wheel skills challenge. After each truck has completed its run, you’ll have twenty seconds to enter your vote which will then go to a central scoring location. At the end of the event, the driver with the highest average score wins!
