Monster Jam: Real Monsters

The annual East Rutherford Monster Jam is a bit of a deviation from the usual type of jamming that we cover here at The Aquarian Weekly. However, this event is definitely worth the attention. On April 23 at MetLife Stadium, 20 custom-built monster trucks will be competing for the title of the Ultimate Monster. These machines are gargantuan. They normally weigh over 10,000 pounds and can soar up to 35 feet in the air. The trucks have the potential to reach speeds of up to 100 miles an hour and have engines that run on around 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower. Earlier in the day, from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m., there will be a Party in the Pits which will give fans the chance to see the vehicles up close and meet the drivers.
