WHAT: Monster Jam®, the unexpected, unscripted and unforgettable, most family-friendly motor sport in the world today will tear through Washington, DC for three adrenaline pumping events at the Capital One Arena on January 26-27.
Featuring eight of the most intense athletes of Monster Jam, Washington fans will witness a fierce battle for the championship with each competitor contending in customized high-powered vehicles: Monster Jam Speedsters, Monster Jam ATVs and of course, the iconic Monster Jam trucks in six events sure to leave fans on the edge of their seats.
The 2019 Monster Jam season will see athletes on each tour battle it out every weekend from January to May to be crowned the tour champion and receive an automatic bid to Monster Jam World Finals XX that will be held in Orlando for the first-time-ever.

Now across all Monster Jam events, fans in every city will have the chance to vote for the winner in the two-wheel and freestyle competitions by real-time, in-venue fan voting on their smartphones.
Fans are invited to the pre-event Pit Party before January 26 and 27 1:00 p.m. events where they can get up-close-and personal with the Monster Jam trucks and drivers, take photos and get autographs.

This past weekend my family and I went to the Monster Jam Triple Threat Series show at the Capital One Arena in D.C. It was our first time going to a Monster Truck show, so I was a little hesitant at first but happy to report I was pleasantly surprised! It was so fun and full of energy! My husband especially enjoyed it. I guess it was about time we did something like this since we’ve dragged him around to Disney on Ice, circuses, and musicals for years now!
One thing I learned once we arrived is that you can’t bring a dslr camera inside the arena. So…unfortunately my husband got stuck with walking my camera back to the car. Good thing we drove and didn’t take Metro. And therefore, this post only contains iphone photos. But our seats were fantastic, so I was able to get some decent shots since we were so close and smack dab in the center.
After we got the girls their $15 cotton candy and $10 french fries we took our seats and the show began with all the trucks driving around. It was extremely loud when the drivers hit the gas! Make sure to bring ear protection. I ordered noise cancelling headsets for everyone in my family ahead of time on Amazon. They do sell them there if you forget to bring your own. We even brought our 4 month old, Teddy and he was fine with the ear protection. I was a bit worried about bringing him but he was absolutely mesmerized with the show. He even took a 15 minute nap during intermission!
Then the athletes each took a turn competing in four different competitions including speed, wheelies, donuts, and freestyle. I couldn’t believe some of the tricks they were doing. My girls were excited to see that two of the drivers were females!
The drivers competed not only in their Monster Trucks, but they also raced with ATVs and speedsters. It was fun watching the races and the crowd really got into them!
We will definitely go back to this show again! It was so entertaining and a great family activity. I think Teddy will especially love this in a couple years! If you missed the show in DC, you can catch it in Baltimore at the Royal Farms Arena February 16-18.
Disclosure: I am a Feld Family Ambassador, and in exchange for my time and efforts in attending shows and reporting my opinion within this blog, as well as keeping you advised of the latest discount offers, Feld Entertainment has provided me with complimentary tickets to Feld shows and opportunities to attend private Feld pre-Show events. Even though I receive these benefits, I always give an opinion that is 100% mine.

I am looking forward to seeing the show with my family this weekend! Although, I am honestly a bit hesitant as I have never been before so I’m not quite sure what to expect. I have heard that it is a very unique experience. Plus now that I have a baby boy, I feel like I should get acquainted with the monster trucks. In a couple years when I take him to see the show, he will think I’m the coolest mom ever!
