The transformation has always amazed me, even as an adult. Recently headline performances were bringing music and moves to a high-tech stage bursting with flashing strobe lights and amped up instruments before the high energy audience. After that, the flawless routines of top notch ice skaters sliding and gliding across a showcase rink of glistening ice dazzled the crowds with their grace and technicality. Now, the rough and tumble destruction of the world-renowned monster trucks are prepping for another incredible pit party.
Here's a behind the scenes reveal of the making of Monster Jam.
As the growing trends call for an increased demand for more dynamic freestyle competitions and increasingly technical tracks, the demands on the construction crews have comparatively increased. The need to make a quick transformation from set-up to take-down while carefully protecting the arena grounds is an essential skill. Just take a moment to consider all of the behind the scenes action required to take a stadium from a fully functioning football field one week, to a Monster Jam race track, and then ready for a battle of the bands the following week.
