Monster Jam Adelaide Expect the Unexpected
One of the biggest family shows, Monster Jam® is heading back to Adelaide with its big trucks and high-powered vehicles including some familiar favourites, plus up to five brand new trucks and drivers. With even more super-charged moto-tainment this will be a unique sensory experience like no other.
Australia will be the first country in the world to experience the bigger than big ‘Monster Jam – Expect the Unexpected’ show with fans able to witness jaw-dropping displays of punishing stunts across seven shows in five major cities.
Monsters Descend on Adelaide Oval – Monster Jam® Comes to Town
With sold-out shows last year, Monster Jam is back and bigger than ever with the first ever Adelaide Oval show.
The show will feature four unique Monster Jam driver competitions – Monster Jam Wheelies, Racing, Donuts and the coveted Freestyle competitions, with the Freestyle Motocross and Quad Wars also set to return.
Get ready for ‘Party in the Pits’ ahead of the show, where fans can get up close to their favourite Monster Jam trucks, before meeting the superstar drivers.
The 2016 lineup includes a number of fan favourites, with ‘Grave Digger’, ‘Monster Mutt Dalmatian’ and ‘Max-D’ back to tear up the track, alongside new additions ‘Alien Invasion’, ‘Pirates Curse’ and the yellow ‘El Toro Loco’.
Monster Jam Trucks
Standing nearly four metres tall and four metres wide, Monster Jam trucks are custom-designed machines that weigh around 5,500kgs. Built for short, high powered bursts of speed, the powerful Monster Jam® beasts perform breathtaking stunts and can accelerate from 0-100kph in under 3 seconds. They literally fly – covering up to 50m in a single leap (a distance greater than 14 cars side by side) and up to 12m skywards.

Friday 14 October 2016 | Monster Jam Arrives in Adelaide!
We checked out the Monster trucks ahead of the show today and they are pretty cool up close.
Adelaide Oval – but not as you know it. It’s getting ready for the roar of Monster Jam below.
If you’re heading to the Party in the Pits you’ll get to see the trucks up close, meet the drivers and take a ride in the Grave Digger.
See our little snippet of the ride on the Grave Digger. Our tip? Hold on tight!!
It’s not just about the boys! One of the sport’s best-known female drivers, Candice Jolly has built a huge fan following in a short time on the Monster Jam® tour. Jolly’s been raised in a family that loves motorsports and most of her family participates in many different types of racing. Her sister, Courtney Jolly has also driven in Monster Jam competitions. Jolly has not only built a large fan base in North America, she has also become one of the sport’s most popular drivers on the World Tour, having competed several times outside of the United States. Known for her big smile and bubbly personality, Jolly is a big hit, both on the track and during the Party in the Pits.
When asked “How did you get started competing on the Monster Jam circuit?”
We were at a show where my sister sang the United States National Anthem. We started talking to Mike Wales and Brian Welch [Monster Jam operations managers] and showed them our driving portfolios. Mike and Brian brought us up to the Grave Digger® shop at two different times to give us auditions. Shortly after, they gave us jobs on the tour. I’ve been racing since I was eight years old. I started in go-karts. I’ve run Formula Vees, Sport 2000’s, Formula Continental, Limited Late Models, dragsters, swamp buggies, demolition cars, among others, and now Monster Jam trucks.

Please Note that the Adelaide Zombie Walk is happening in Elder Park from 3pm, with the walk commencing at 7pm. You can expect to see a lot of people dressed up in ghouly zombie characters for this – maybe prepare your children for this so they don’t get a fright!
