Monster Jam Thumb

Monster Jam

Sun 02 Nov 2014 1 & 2 November 2014

Monster Jam monster trucks are custom-designed machines that sit atop 66-inch-tall tyres and weigh a minimum of 5 tonne. Built for short, high-powered bursts of speed, monster trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 160 kilometers per hour. Monster trucks can fly up to 38 meters and up to 10 meters in the air.  The 3.5 meter tall, 5 tonne machines will bring you to your feet, racing and ripping up a custom-designed track full of obstacles to soar over or smash through!

Touring New Zealand for the first time ever, Monster Jam offers a full day of fun.  Before the afternoon shows on Saturday and Sunday, don't miss the world famous Party in the Pits, where you and your family can meet the drivers, get autographs, and take pictures with the trucks!
