About the Monster X Tour

The spectacle of motocross meets the brute force of monster truck mayhem in the Monster X Tour, where some of the most famous monster trucks perform stunts and compete against each other for the coveted Monster X Championship. Since 2009, such legendary names in monster trucks as Traxxas X-Maxx, Equalizer, Red Solo Truck, and the one that started it all, Bigfoot, have entertained in stadiums and arenas throughout the United States and the world for the Monster X Tour. Motocross bikers, demolition derbies, and other sideshows complete the program, contributing to a memorable night for all spectators. Monster X Tour events have taken place mainly in the Western US and worldwide, with a show in Hawaii in 2019 and occasional shows nationwide.

Monster X Tour History

Monster trucks first became popular in the late '70s and early '80s with the arrival of Bigfoot, a souped-up Ford F-250 modified by Bob Chandler. After making public appearances at tractor pulls and county fairs, Bigfoot began the monster truck tradition of crushing automobiles in 1981, establishing the iconography of an entire sport and becoming part of American popular culture. The Monster X Tour first began in 2009 and immediately established credibility with the presence of both Bigfoot Racing and Straight Up Racing. Traxxas RC racing sponsored the tour from 2016 to 2018, first as the Traxxas Monster Truck Destruction Tour, and then as the Traxxas Monster Truck Tour.

Monster X events feature several monster truck competitions, including wheelie contests, races and freestyle competitions, which allow these giant machines to do such incredible stunts as hill jumps and even backflips. The tour culminates each year with the Monster X Tour World Finals. In 2019, Ty Cornelius Jr. rode Paul Breaud's Traxxas X-Maxx truck to victory, winning the Monster X Tour championship with an average finishing score of 41.83 points out of a maximum 50.

    Horrible experience that never happened. I bought my tickets in 2020. The event was postponed and still nothing. I asked for my refund numerous times and all I get is sorry you cannot because your event has to be cancelled so because it’s postponed for 2 years now I still can’t get a refund.

    Amazing Show

    by Neng on 9/13/22OC Fair & Event Center - Costa Mesa

    The show was amazing with the motorcycles and the different monster trucks. It was my first show so I didn’t t know what to expect. I got the VIP experience which allowed us to go in early to take pictures before the show, get snacks and look for our seats. I felt the price was a bargain because it included my engrave to the OC Fair, early seating with great pics and videos. I would definitely want to watch it again and the OC Fair venue. My husband and kids totally enjoyed it.

    Arena is too small!

    by Noah on 9/2/22OC Fair & Event Center - Costa Mesa

    This was actually a lot of fun! There were motorbike stunts, a "tow-truck" obstacle course/race, and then the monster truck show. Main problem was that the arena was too small for the monster trucks to do that many tricks. Also, tickets were rather expensive ($20-25ish each), considering that entry was free for OC Fair ticket-holders and the free entry side of the stadium was less packed than the prepaid side.

    So much fun!

    by KT on 8/3/22OC Fair & Event Center - Costa Mesa

    Had a blast watching this show! We had a group of 14, which earned us a group rate, so it ended up being a great deal. We sat in the section just off center and they were great seats. Everyone really enjoyed all the elements, from the dirt bikes to the small trucks, and especially the monster trucks! I didnt realize the show was so short, but it didnt matter since the tickets were so cheap. Great value all around!

    Family Time

    by Sasha on 7/27/22OC Fair & Event Center - Costa Mesa

    My kid is obsessed with monster trucks so this was his first encounter of live trucks for him! He loved it and we loved seeing his little eyes light up! It does get loud , but they sell noise canceling Headphones (not great quality BUT they are not too expensive and they do the job) overall great experience for a little one.

    Could be better

    by Annie on 7/25/22OC Fair & Event Center - Costa Mesa

    Monster truck part at the end was too short. Only 4 trucks and 2 laps. Motorcycles at beginning was cool. Time trial trucks was okay. Monster truck got kids excited than its over.

    Okay at best

    by Trentonkid on 7/25/22OC Fair & Event Center - Costa Mesa

    I guess we were just expecting more from this show, not that we expected a Monster Jam type of performance…only a few trucks and the motorcycle expedition definitely outshined the trucks..we paid extra for a reserved seat which was nice, the crowd didn’t seem too into it either, maybe because it was the first performance of the fair? Anyway, would probably not return again in future, if we did we would probably just take the free seats that come with fair admission…

    We took our 4 year old grandson and I have never seen a more awesome reaction!!! Every time a truck jumped, he would look at me and scream with excitement!!! The drivers that he met at the Meet & Greet were super nice and gracious! It was phenomenal entertainment!!
