Didn't make it there... too far for me.

Your post reminded me of the time I took my boys to one at Vets in DM 10 years ago. They were all excited - until it started. Too loud and the exhaust bothered them... they were too young for it. I kept buying trying to bribe them so I could enjoy it, but we ended up leaving half way through the show.

My son just loved every minute of it I took him a set of earplug so the noise wouldn't bother him..

It was a rather long ride for him (just over an hour) on the way there, but he was excited. He slept all the way home though

in waterloo, do the trucks have some room to run? i saw the monster trucks at "The Mark of the Quad Cities" a while back, and it was pretty lame due to the lack of room...the "Outlaw Nationals" at the mississippi valley fairgrounds is usually entertaining...they kinda mix it up with the monster trucks, tough trucks, quad racing, and/or motorcross freestyle stuff...

I've seen Monster jam in Vet's auditorium in DesMoines which was pretty lame due to the lack of room, but Monster Jam put on a pretty good show when I saw it in Mineapolis at the Metrodome.

I bet that was great. The metrodome is a really good size for it. I've been in there quite a few times, but never for Monster trucks.
