Warn Your Kids About How Loud It Will Be

Loud noises could startle some kids. It’s almost impossible to avoid noise at a monster truck show, though, so talk to your kids about how noisy it’s going to be before you arrive. It will prepare them for the show and let them know what they are walking into at the show. You should also consider buying them earplugs or headphones if you feel that would be best.

Talk to Your Kids About Not Standing in Front of Other People

There is a lot of excitement at monster truck shows. All of the kids in attendance are usually in awe at how the large trucks are able to move. Moreover, this can cause some of them to stand in front of others without considering how it could impact their enjoyment of the show. Talk to your kids about staying in their seats at the show and then gently remind them throughout the show to sit down and not block the views of other people.

Avoid Leaving Your Seats in the Middle of a Segment

Monster truck shows are usually broken down into different segments featuring different trucks. You’re more than welcome to leave your seat to use the restroom or to get food during any of these segments, but you should try not to leave in the middle of one since the best monster trucks usually make appearances at the end of them. Try to get your kids to wait for a break in the action before they leave their seats to handle their business or get a snack.
