Monster-truck shows are the safest places to practice pretend engine noises without attracting lawn mowers in heat. Rev up with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $104, you get one family fun pack for four at the Monster X Tour at the Lamar-Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales on Sunday, January 29 (up to a $208 total value). Each family fun pack includes the following:
- Four general-admission tickets (a $68 value including $2 facility fee per ticket)
- Four pit-party passes (up to a $20 value)
- Four Monster X Tour flags, available in checkered or black (a $60 value)
- Four Monster X Tour LED necklaces (a $60 value)<p>
The pit party will be held from 12:30 p.m. until 1:30 p.m., and the show begins at 2 p.m.
Crunching metal and the sweet smell of burning rubber prevail as the Monster X Tour invades the Lamar-Dixon Expo Center, thrilling all ages in an action-packed motorsports showcase. Ballistic, the kinetic king of chassis-crushing autos, leads a fleet of competitive 10,000-pound monster trucks, including War Wizard and Sweet Tooth, through jaw-dropping races, wheelie contests, and freestyle car composting. The Globe of Death pulls showgoers to the edge of their seats with the spectacle of two daredevil motorcyclists avoiding both death and awkward silences while whipping around the interior of a giant steel ball.
Before the show, family fun packs also grant access to the pit party, where fans can have autographs signed by the drivers. During intermission, fans get the opportunity to eschew sea level with a ride inside a monster truck or check out the General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard. Monster X Tour flags let fans wave banners in support of favored four-wheelers, and LED necklaces’ greenish glow lets families tell each other apart from malevolent Transformers in the event of a power outage.
Though Monster X Tour sometimes features discounted prices online for pit-party passes, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
