This Winter has been harsh in the Burgh and if your kids are anything like my boys, cabin fever is getting the best of them. To be honest, it’s gotten the best of me too! Thankfully there are some great events coming soon to CONSOL Energy Center.
Monster Jam is coming to CONSOL Energy Center February 14-16 and tickets are affordably priced for the whole family with seats starting at just $12 for kids and $25 for adults.
The event will feature the first appearance in Pittsburgh of Iron Man™, the rugged crusher inspired by the Iron Man 2 movie. After a triumphant premiere in Pittsburgh last year, this year’s show will also see the return of Zombie, along with fan favorite Monster Jam® trucks, including Grave Digger, Monster Mutt, Razin’ Kane, Ice Cream Man, Illuminator, and Instigator. (Trucks subject to change without notice.)
Approximately 12 feet tall and about 12 feet wide, Monster Jam 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 Jam trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Monster Jam 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.
The Party in the Pits on Saturday, February 15 and Sunday, February 16 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day gives fans the opportunity to get onto the actual racetrack to collect the drivers’ autographs, take photos, and explore the obstacles they’ll jump over and eventually destroy. Pit passes are available for ticket holders of the 2 p.m. shows for an additional $10.
This year Monster Jam is doing something really cool! Get tickets for the Thursday, February 13 event and you can attend the FREE, family-friendly party, from 6-8pm to celebrate the Pittsburgh debut of the Iron Man truck. The party will be superhero-themed and will include games, a photo booth, arts & crafts, face-painting, and a chance to go down to the track for a sneak peek at the truck and to meet the driver, Lee O'Donnell. Can you imagine your kiddos face when they get to see the Iron Man truck up close and personal?!
Tickets are available at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Box Office at CONSOL Energy Center, all Ticketmaster retail outlets, online at www.ticketmaster.com or Charge by Phone at 800-745-3000.
