Monster Jam 2017 in Indianapolis

I took Colt, Kayden’s brother, to Monster Jam® and we had a blast!  Our adventure to the monster truck extravaganza was not a planned event, but it sure was fun.  Have you ever been to Monster Jam®? Oh my goodness, you have to go at least once in your lifetime.  It’s definitely an experience to remember!

We had awesome seats (10th row) and the crowd was crazy! It was a complete sell out of Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.  All the way up to the top rafters were full of Monster Jam® fans.   Thank God we had the good seats!

We saw monster truck races, timed and head-to-head.  In the freestyle competition, we saw donuts, wheelies and even flips! Yes, I said flips! They ramp these trucks and flip them over. The crowds go wild!  We even got to see the Scooby-Doo truck attempt a DOUBLE flip. (See the video below that we made.)  It was AWESOME!!!  Yes, I’m a grandma and I loved it.

Lucas Oil Crusader won the competition with an overall point total of 121, followed by Max-D at 107.  The crowd favorite, Grave Digger, came in at 104.  Also competing were Sccoby-Doo!, El Toro Loco, Saigon Shaker, War Wizard, Gas Monkey Garage, Hooked, Brutus, Slinger, Stone Crusher, Avenger and Fluffy.  My favorite was El Toro Loco as he looked like a bull and even had horns.  Colt really like Max-D and Scooby Doo.

Wrap up:

  • Will we go again? Maybe, but not every year.
  • Value for the Money: $80 per ticket plus Ticketmaster fees – definitely overpriced, but it wouldn’t have been as fun in the $20 seats.  We also had to buy a $25 tee shirt.  (We resisted the $20 snow cones and cotton candy!)
