 We headed into Cardiff City Centre for around 9am. The Pit
Party was due to start at 10am so we wanted to make sure we arrived in plenty
of time.

We headed to our gate and we were only queuing for around 20
minutes before gates opened. I was very happy to see that the Pit Party wasn’t
overly busy and we didn’t really have to queue for more than 5 minutes to meet
the drivers of each truck.

The kids absolutely loved being able to get up close to the
Monster Trucks and meeting the drivers who were all so friendly and happy to
autograph the kids’ books and have photos taken with them.

After the meet and
greets we decided to head to the merchandise stall for a souvenir for the kids.
Yes the products are overpriced for what they are but they are also Monster Jam
branded. The small die cast Monster trucks were £15 and the large were £30. Both
our children decided to buy the plush Monster Trucks for £22 each, they are
really lovely and of great quality. The kids loved seeing “their” trucks racing
and happily waved their toys in the air whenever they saw them on the track.
They were delighted as both got their trucks won a race as well!

I was a bit concerned at how loud the trucks would be as I had
read online that it would be extremely loud and most people had recommended
buying ear defenders for the children. They do sell them at the event but again
they aren’t cheap. We bought ours from B&Q for £3 each, we did also buy
earplugs for ourselves but found that we didn’t really need them but I would
highly recommend getting some if you have children attending this event.

After the Pit Party we had a bit of a wait as the main show didn’t
start until 3pm, luckily there is plenty to do in Cardiff city centre, we had a
wander around the market, stopped for some food and the kids enjoyed playing in
the grounds of Cardiff Castle.

Around 2pm we took our seats ready for the main event to
begin. It started with a truly amazing light show and then all the Monster
Trucks revving their engines as they drove into the Stadium. The show itself is
a series of races, I didn’t actually realise this beforehand. But each Monster
Truck goes up against another as they battle it out for fastest race, best two
wheel trick etc. During the intermission the motorbikes came out and put on a
spectacular show with breath taking stunts!

Overall we absolutely loved Monster Jam its great fun for
all the family and I would highly recommend going!
