The Monster Jam live show will visit London for the first time on 18th June and fans can recreate the action at home with the Spin Master toy line. 

Larger-than-life sporting experience Monster Jam heads to London for the first time this summer. Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the adrenaline-charged, interactive experience for the whole family promises world-class athletes locked in intense competitions of speed and skill. The event at the London Stadium in Stratford will welcome up to 50,000 spectators.

Returning to international competition for the first time since 2020 on 18th June, UK Fans will get to witness the heated rivalries, high-flying stunts and fierce head-to-head battles of Monster Jam, as the world-famous 12,000-pound Monster Jam trucks such as Grave Digger, El Toro Loco and Megalodon take part in Freestyle, Skills and Racing competitions.

There will also be a ‘Pit Party’ from 11:30-13:00, where fans can see the massive trucks up close, get an inside look into how they’re built, meet their favourite drivers, take pictures, get autographs and so much more.

“Monster Jam is a global premier experience which entertains and delights millions around the planet, bringing families of all ages together for one historic event,” said Magnus Danielsson, vice president of International Motorsports for Feld Entertainment Inc., owner of Monster Jam. “We are excited to be bringing Monster Jam to London, and the iconic London Stadium for the first time ever.”

Global toy partner Spin Master offers a selection of diecast vehicles to help recreate some of the epic stunts seen on the track, as part of a collection which has been performing strongly for the company. The Megalodon and Grave Digger remote control vehicles replicate the power, attitude, excitement and action of the real trucks, complete with official sponsor BKT Tires and a look-alike chassis.

Hedley Barnes, SVP International at Spin Master Toys, added: “We are so excited that fans of our Monster Jam toys will be able to experience the real-life action with a trip to the London Stadium. With our vast range of Monster Jam vehicles, the epic stunts that are seen on the 18th June will be easy to recreate at home.”
