ZZ Ninja Kid: Monster Jam Truck Show Barcelona
ZZ Ninja Kid has been watching Monster Jam on YouTube and when we happened upon a bus the other day with a huge advert for the Barcelona show there was no way I was going to get out of it !
We booked the whole shabang, decent seats & entrance to the “Pit Party” so ZZ could get up close to all the cars, meet the drivers & get their autographs.
He LOVED it !
The Americans really know how to put on an extravagant show with all the WOW factor.
We each picked 2 drivers who we thought would win the Monster Jam Barcelona Cup.
I chose El Diabolo (very cool chassis with a devil face on the roof, including giant inflatable tongue) & NEA (a beautiful silver shiny chassis).
ZZ favourites were Monster Energy & Scooby Doo (both drivers were very kind to him when he went to meet them, the Scooby Doo driver is a very glamorous chick !).
Well my criteria chosing Monster Jam trucks based on how pretty they are was obviously a mistake, El Diabolo & NEA both demonstrated hardcore wow factor but both crashed in spectacular fashion and had to be removed by the crane, NEA without a couple of wheels & El Diabolo having lost half his chassis and smoke billowing out of every orifice.
Scooby Doo & Monster Energy both did really well and actually managed to drive round for the victory lap !
A great family friendly day out for adults & kids, I would definitely recommend the Pre Pit Party, although it adds on an extra 4 hours, it made the drivers and cars seem so much more “real” to ZZ.
