Lastly, Race Ace will join as another new monster truck to the event series, bearing the iconic Hot Wheels flame design.

The tour continues to bring audiences the only opportunity to see real-life versions of the famous Hot Wheels monster truck toys including returning favourites Bone Shaker, Tiger Shark, V8 Bomber and Demo Derby. Performances will also feature a special appearance from the car-eating, fire-breathing transforming robot Megasaurus, and the high-flyers of Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live, Freestyle Motocross.

The popular Crash Zone Pre-Show Party will begin 2.5 hours before every performance. The unique experience offers fans access to the competition floor to see the outrageous designs and epic size of the Hot Wheels Monster Trucks. Attendees can also make the day even more memorable with an adrenaline-fueled VIP Package, including amazing views of the action, merchandise, guided Monster Truck tours and more.
