My family and I headed to Baltimore on a chilly Friday night. The show was scheduled to start at 7:30 PM. I was amazed that our almost hour drive to the arena was a breeze; we were able to get there in no time, all while Liam slept peacefully in his car seat. I was excited to get there and begin our adventure.
This brings me to another suggestion about seating. In my opinion, there is no such thing as a bad seat at a Monster Jam show. This particular arena is smaller in size, so you will see a great deal of action from any angle. It just depends on what type of experience you want (and how many great photos or videos you want to capture). We were just as excited to sit high as we were to sit low. You can decide what works for your group based on pricing, too. Tickets for the Monster Jam show can be purchased here.
The arena is normally a bit cool. I don't know if this is a requirement for the trucks to perform at their best or not. I do know that the chill temperatures help ease the smell of fumes that are emitted into the air. Dress in layers, so that if it does warm up (from all the dancing and jumping up that takes place) you can remove them accordingly. Also, dress comfortably. You'll be sitting for most of the show and will also be jumping up and moving around in your seat to follow the excitement.
I suggest eating before the show. Not only does it save a few dollars, it also helps everyone concentrate on the monster trucks and not a growling stomach. We did get the boys an order of nachos to share. Always expect to pay a little more for concessions at events, including the workers who walk around with sno-cones, cotton candy and other items to entice your little ones. Be ready for negotiations with your toddlers who will most likely have a fit if they can't get an item. We left before I had a chance to get Liam a die-cast car. They were priced at $10 a piece and are a great piece of memorabilia to take home.
Monster Jam is for the entire family. It's an event that everyone will enjoy. Just keep in mind that the arena can be loud, so make sure the people attending with you can handle that aspect. I would suggest that everyone attend at least one show in their lifetime. We have been several times over the past years and each time we notice something different.
Royal Farms Arena will host it's last show on Sunday, February 28th at 2 PM. Check to see if tickets are available to purchase. Also, be on the lookout for Monster Jam to return to your area.
