If you’re looking to enter 2023 with a bang, then the first event of your year should be the Monster Jam! This monster truck show is a Utah favorite and this year’s show promises to be spectacular. The renowned Megalodon, Grave Digger, El Toro Loco, and others will battle to be the champion of speed and skill, all for your entertainment.
The Jam will be held at Vivint Arena on January 6th, 7th, and 8th. The competitions start at 1pm and 7pm, depending on the day, but you’ll want to arrive much earlier, and not just to snag a parking spot! On Saturday and Sunday the Arena will also be hosting a Pit Party from 10:30am to noon. These parties give you an opportunity to see the trucks up close, get pictures, meet the drivers, get autographs, and more! It’s a close and personal look behind the scenes you won’t want to miss.
If you can’t make it to the Pit Party, you should still try to arrive at least an hour before the event starts so you can watch the Monster Jam Trackside. Trackside starts about an hour before the competition starts and goes over the competitors, behind the scenes crew prep, competition rules and expectations, driver interviews, the judges, opening ceremonies, and more. You won’t want to miss out on all of these cool tidbits and glimpses behind the scenes, so remember to be early!
After the competition is over, don’t go home yet! You can purchase exclusive tickets to a driver meet and greet for after the Jam. Hear all about the driver’s takeaways and thoughts on the competition and get a checkered flag that’s perfect for collecting autographs on.
No matter what day you go on, or how many of the events you attend, it’s sure to be an unforgettable show, so don’t delay and get your tickets now!
