The bigger the truck, the bigger the fun and all the excitement of Monster Truck Mania is about to roll out at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre this June.
After a Covid-related hiatus, a convoy of giant-wheeled gargantuans will bring equally massive thrills to a live audience beneath the blazing floodlights of an all-weather arena.
Founder of Spokes Promotions Philip Christensen (the event’s organiser) said the Brisbane leg of the 2022 Monster Truck Mania national tour would also feature the premiere of the newest monster truck on the planet.
“The wraps have yet to come off the next generation Devil’s Taxi, which is built entirely in Australia and which the owners boast will make all American big trucks obsolete,” Phillip said.
The new Devil’s Taxi is set to carry on the tradition of the Chevy Silverado monster truck, which held the world record for longest wheelstands up until 2020.
According to Philip, all trucks will be ready for the Brisbane campaign where they will be tested with a series of missions, which will include a hard fought freestyle exhibition and much more.
“Alongside the big trucks, there are zany Junior Trucks, a blazing Jet Car, a wheelstanding Jeep, a crazy WWll tank with a mind of its own, world-class backflipping Freestyle Motocrossers and even a laser show,” Philip said.
The event is family friendly with the weather-proof venue in Boondall featuring velvet seats, high-tech lighting and giant digital screens to ensure comfort and up close and personal entertainment — including dramatic replays.
“It’s all back, bigger and better; with the ground set to certainly pound with the whole monster truck lineup,” Philip said.
Sessions are scheduled to suit family members young and old with matinees from 1pm on Saturday 18 June (similarly on Sunday 19 June) and ticket prices start from $35.
“To make it easier for everyone to attend, we’ve timed things to avoid the usual family weekend commitments,” Phillip said.
