As a mom of boys I’m always looking for things to do that aren’t completely girly and also because the boys are so spread out in age I try to find things that would please them both. Well I’m super excited to say I’ve found one event coming to Chicago that’s a decent price, not too girly, and can keep both of my kids entertained…can you say #Winning? The Monster Jam is coming this weekend and it’s bigger and better than ever! From Friday, September 27th until Sunday September 29th you can head over to AllState Arena to see some of the biggest and baddest Monster trucks bouncing off the wall tricks.
What to expect?
The hottest show on wheels returns with its trademark combo of races and stunts, pitting the best drivers in the biggest monster trucks against one another for a shot at the Monster Jam World Finals, a monster of a good time for the whole family.
The driver-athletes in each Triple Threat Series must compete in three vehicles — monster trucks, monster ATVs, and monster speedsters — over seven different competitions, some racing and some freestyle. The ATVs are the Monster Jam version of the four-wheeler you may have raced through the woods, and the Speedsters are UTVs, like a monster truck shrunk down to the size of a Jeep or dune buggy and outfitted with balloon tires.
Basically expect some big trucks doing amazing tricks! It’s going to be VERY loud so please that that in mind. You can bring ear muffs or ear plugs to help muffle the noise. Overall it’s great family fun that creates lots of memories.
Where, when, & how much?
September 27th-29th (Friday until Sunday) afternoon and evening shows at the Allstate Arena 6920 North Mannheim Road. Tickets are regularly $25 and up.
But you said coupon inside…
Okay so I told you tickets are regularly $25 and up, but you are pretty special to me so I can’t let you pay regular price. Big thanks to The Chicagoland Mom Squad because they always have amazing hook ups for families that want to have a great time but not break the bank. I have a coupon that you can take to the Box Office and a promo code (MSQUAD) you can use online (be aware this code is limited so try to use it quickly.) Tickets can be purchased online via Ticketmaster and at the box office.
Family night out edition is Friday September 27th!
Me and the crew will be out and about at the Monster Jam Family Night Out edition with The Chicagoland Mom Squad. If you plan on hanging out Friday let me know so we can get a selfie together. If you want to follow along on the action on social media this weekend look for the hashtags: #MSQUADchi and #MonsterJamChi
