There is no party like a pit party

The Monster Jam Pit Party on Saturday and Sunday gives fans a chance to view the monster trucks up close when they purchase a Pit Party Pass with the event ticket. Your littles can meet the drivers and crews, get autographs, and snap Insta-worthy photos for special memories. And the fun doesn’t stop there—plenty of activities will be available, including the Sand Box play area, UNOH tire demonstration, coloring, temporary tattoo station, and lots of photo ops with the Series trophy. But you’ll also get the perk of getting to your seats early to experience Monster Jam Trackside with exciting extra events like competition previews, driver interviews, and giveaways. Being there early also ensures you can watch the opening ceremonies and power rush truck introductions, too.
