Disney on Ice Winner and Monster Jam Discounts

Congratulations to Savannah who won the Disney on Ice family four pack.  She was the lucky (I love that website) integer who gets to go see the show on February 2.  And yes, she's already responded to my email that she can attend for those of you hoping for a second chance.

But there are more shows coming!  Feld Entertainment is also presenting Monster Jam®, the world’s premier monster truck series will take place in Rosemont, IL at Allstate Arena this Feb. 12 - 14, featuring freestyle and racing competition. We once again have discounts for those of you who are interested in attending.

You will receive $5 off adult tickets by using code MOM. The discount is good for the shows on Saturday Feb. 13, at 2PM and 7:30PM as well as Sunday, Feb. 14 at 2:00PM. Tickets for children under 12 are always just $10 and do not require a code to purchase. Enter the code on the Ticketmaster website in the promotions or special offers line. The discount is not valid on the $50 or $30 price levels, and double discount are not allowed. Note that tickets bought the day off at the Allstate Arena are $2 higher than when you buy in advance.

This weekend’s show will feature Grave Digger and for the first time in Chicago, Nitro Circus will be competing! Plus, the Built Ford Tough Party in the Pits is on Sunday, February 14th from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM. This gives fans the opportunity to get a view of the trucks up close and meet the drivers of the massive monster trucks. Free Pit Passes are available at Advanced Auto Parts or they can be purchased for $5 the day of the show at the box office.

So you’ve never been to a monster truck rally (ok, neither have I!). What do you need to know, other than my assumption that they’re loud from what I’ve seen in movies? Approximately 12 feet tall and about 12 feet wide, monster trucks are custom-designed machines that sit atop 66-inch-tall tires and weigh a minimum of 10,000 pounds. Built for short, high-powered bursts of speed, monster trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Monster trucks can fly up to125 to 130 feet (a distance greater than 14 cars side by side) and up to 35 feet in the air.

Disclosure: I haven’t decided whether my family will attend this event or not (mostly due to the noise concerns with Mister Man), but we have been offered tickets to the show. I received no other compensation for providing this information.
