Monster truck show in Dubai Festival City
For a “turbo-charged, auto-crushing, rubber-burning and heart-thumping” spectacle, head to the Dubai Festival City and watch as two monster trucks go head-to-head at the first Monster Trucks Dubai event from January 28 to February 28.
The event, which promises to be a thrilling day out, will be held at the Festival Centre in a purpose-built arena. The award winning Festival Centre has been at the forefront in bringing some of the finest entertainment to residents of the city. Festival Centre will be the hub of all premier entertainment activities at this year’s Dubai Shopping Festival.
Monster Trucks Dubai promises 60 minutes of adrenalin-fuelled motor mayhem that includes car crushing, motorcycle free-styling, ramp jumping, wheelie pulling, quad-bike leaping and two-wheel car driving that will leave visitors dumbfounded.
For those not in the know, a monster truck is an automobile, typically styled after pickup trucks, modified or purposely built with extremely large wheels and suspension.
With known monster-truck drivers from the UK, visitors to the event can “enjoy the heavy weights of the automotive world treat everyday autos with disdain, leaping and crushing all in its path at will.”
These trucks can run up and over most man-made barriers, so to calm spectator nerves, they are equipped with remote shut-off switches, called the Remote Ignition Interuptor (RII), to help prevent an accident if the driver loses control at any time.
The show will feature Monster Trucks, Freestyle Motocross, Outlaw Quad Wars, Car Stunt Battles and Daily pit parties.
There are a total of 56 shows across 30 days with shows running on Monday and Tuesday at 7 pm, Wednesday and Thursday at 7 pm and 9 pm, Friday 4 pm, 7 pm and 9 pm and Saturday 4pm and 7pm.
Advance tickets are available at Dubai Festival City from January 21. Tickets starts at Dhs 45 for standing and Dhs 75 for seating areas.
