- Blake Granger has his eye on the event championship driving Max-D™, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
When asked about returning to Queensland after six years away, Charlie Pauken driver of fan favourite Megalodon said he was extremely excited! “Many special Monster Jam fans have been asking when I would be returning to Australia, and I can finally confirm I am coming back in October! It’s like a family reunion to me! I’ve never been to the Gold Coast, which makes it all the more worthwhile. I love our international travel, experiencing new places and fans everywhere we go. I expect Megalodon to be a mega hit on the Gold Coast!” he said.
He described the show as unpredictably, historically, mega forever excitement!
This excitement begins at the Monster Jam Pit Party. Fans can see the massive trucks up close, meet their favorite drivers and crews, get autographs, and take pictures. 2023 activities including the Sand Box play area, Spin Master remote control truck course, and a colouring station. This fun-filled experience is the only place that allows people to get up close access to the Monster Jam teams and get an insider’s look at how these trucks are built to stand up to the competition. Then, Queenslanders fans will be on the edge of their seats as world-class drivers show off crazy skills and all-out racing in fierce head-to-head battles for the Event Championship. Engineered to perfection, the 12,000-pound Monster Jam trucks push all limits in Freestyle, Skills and Racing competitions. Fans are encouraged to get to their seats early to experience Monster Jam Trackside approximately one hour before the event start time. Featured festivities include competition previews, driver interviews, opening ceremonies and power rush truck introductions.
Monster Jam drivers are trained, world-class male and female athletes who have mastered not only the physical strength and mental stamina needed to compete, but the vital dexterity to control 12,000-pound machines capable of doing backflips, vertical two-wheel skills and racing at speeds up to 70 miles-per-hour to produce jaw-dropping, live motorsports action seen around the world. Monster Jam. As Big As It Gets!™
Cbus Super Stadium Manager Kristian Blundell, “Monster Jam will be an event like we’ve never seen before, with the field transformed into a dirt track complete with ramps and other obstacles for drivers to jump, as well as stunts and competitions of speed and skill. We’ve hosted NRL, rugby union, soccer, Nitro Circus and of course the recent KISS concert, so we’re really pleased to have another great event to showcase the versatility of the venue and hopefully attract more events.”
