They’re big, they’re loud, and now they’re in the Superdome. 16 monster trucks wrecking everything in the way.

Driver Carl Vanhorn says, “Quads, motorcycles, stock cars; you combine all of that, drag racing cars, that’s a monster truck!”

“when you’re living a dream doing exactly what you’ve wanted to do since you were ten years old, there is no scared,” says driver Tom Meents.

It’s hard to believe, but these drivers must be fearless to put on an adrenaline packed show. Monster Jam is back in New Orleans for one night thrills, and hair raising tricks.

“We’re going to be attempting a back flip with Maximum Destruction. It’s an awesome move. Anytime you can take 10,000lbs, Monster Jam Vehicle, and back flip it, that’s exciting,” says Meents, “The dome is so sweet, rebuilt, big floor, a lot of room here. A lot larger floor than any other venue we do.”

All the action happens on Saturday. Doors open at 5pm, but if you really want to get up close and personal there’s a Pit Party that starts at 2pm.
