January… a time for resolutions, a fresh start, snowy days, and, for those of us in the DC area, the chance to see Monster Jam again! Each year Monster Jam rolls into the area with another exciting competition that features your favorite monster trucks (and more!) doing amazing stunts. This year’s event takes place January 25-26, 2020 (three shows), at Capital One Arena in Washington, DC. This activity is fun for all ages, and we’re sending one group to enjoy the show for free! See below for details and a chance to win.
What it’s all about
Monster Jam Triple Threat Series is an action-packed, points-based event that showcases athletes as they go head-to-head in six different competitions, driving three different vehicles: Monster Jam Trucks, Speedsters, and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). The speedsters and ATVs provide fun breaks and fast racing, but the main attraction is the monster trucks. These big, strong, and loud trucks are surprisingly nimble, able to spin, do “headstands,” and perform other tricks.
What to expect
Monster Jam is an action-packed, adrenaline-charged show that gives fans what the want to see: racing, freestyle moves, “donuts,” and lots of action. Fans of trucks such as El Toro Loco, Monster Mutt, Max-D, and Grave Digger root for their teams in various competitions (other trucks scheduled for this event are Alien Invasion, Zombie, Megalodon, and Soldier Fortune).
While the event is suitable for children and adults — and it’s easy for fans of all ages to get swept up by the excitement — it can get VERY loud in the arena. To protect your hearing and make the night more enjoyable, earplugs are a must, and noise-cancelling headphones are an even better idea (especially for young children). The event is about two hours long with a brief intermission.
How to make it more fun
To make the most of your experience, consider adding on the Monster Jam Triple Threat Series Pit Party. This event, which takes place before the daytime events, provides unprecedented access to the Monster Jam trucks and drivers. This unique experience in the world of motorsports (extra fees apply) gives guests access to see the trucks up close, take pictures, meet the drivers and get their autographs. Ticket holders can walk around the arena visiting the trucks of their choice to see the details and talk to the drivers.
