Tickets are now on sale for Monster Jam, which will take over Quicken Loans Arena from Friday, Feb. 14 through Sunday, Feb. 16.

This year, fans will be on the edge of their seats as two trucks make their Cleveland debut — the newly designed Superman truck, Man of Steel and Mohawk Warrior — the first Monster Jam truck adorned with a jet black, razor sharp mohawk.

Monster Jam events showcase freestyle and racing competition among custom-designed machines that average 12 feet tall by 12 feet wide, sit atop 66-inch-tall tires and weigh a minimum of 10,000 pounds. Trucks slated to appear at The Q in 2014 include Grave Digger, Rap Attack, War Wizard, Maximum Destruction, Spike, Mega Bite, Man of Steel and Mohawk Warrior.

For three days and four performances, Monster Jam will rumble and roar through The Q at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15 and 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 16.

Ticket prices start at $20 for adults and $12 for children age 12 and under — and only $12 for everyone on opening night. A limited number of Gold Circle ($30) and VIP ($57) seats available for every show. Tickets are available at the Quicken Loans Arena box office, by calling (888) 894-9424, online at theQarena.com and at all Northeast Ohio Discount Drug Mart stores. Fans are encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance, because prices increase $3 when purchased on the day of the show.

Additionally, active duty and veteran military members can receive one free ticket to opening night, which is Military Appreciation Night. Tickets can be picked up at the Quicken Loans Arena box office with a valid military ID, between Monday, January 27th through Friday, January 31st.

Party in the Pits: A sold-out event year after year, Monster Jam’s Party in the Pits runs from 10:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 15 and Sunday, Feb. 16th, prior to the 2 p.m. shows. The pre-show pit party gives fans (with a pit pass and show ticket) the chance to see these larger-than-life monster trucks up close, meet the drivers behind the wheel, take pictures and get autographs. Pit passes will be available for $10 online at theQarena.com after tickets have been purchased and at the Quicken Loans Arena box office, while supplies last.
