Plus, I've got a family pass (valued at approximately $310!) to giveaway! Just fill out the form below for your chance to win!

Fans of big trucks and high-powered vehicles rejoice - Monster Jam® is heading back to Australia in
2016, with up to five brand new trucks and drivers and even more super-charged moto-tainment
providing a unique sensory experience like no other.

General public tickets for the world’s premiere of Monster Jam – Expect the Unexpected are on sale now with fans able to witness jaw-dropping displays of punishing stunts across seven shows in five major cities.

With three out of four cities sold-out last year, Monster Jam is back and bigger than ever with the first Adelaide Oval show added to the 2016 tour.

Kicking off on October 1, full dates and show locations are as follows:

01 October – 7pm – QSAC, Brisbane
08 October – 2pm and 7pm – AAMI Park, Melbourne
15 October – 7pm – Adelaide Oval, Adelaide
22 October – 7pm – ANZ Stadium, Sydney

The show will feature four unique Monster Jam driver competitions – Monster Jam Wheelies, Racing, Donuts and the coveted Freestyle competitions, with the Freestyle Motocross and Quad Wars also set to return.

Each city will also host one Party in the Pits ahead of a show, where fans can get up close with their
favourite Monster Jam trucks, before meeting the superstar drivers.

The 2016 lineup includes a number of fan favourites, with ‘Grave Digger’, ‘Monster Mutt Dalmatian’ and ‘Max-D’ back to tear up the track, alongside new additions ‘Alien Invasion’, ‘Pirates Curse’ and the yellow ‘El Toro Loco’.

Standing nearly four metres tall and four metres wide, Monster Jam trucks are custom-designed machines that weigh around 5,500kgs. Built for short, high powered bursts of speed, the powerful

Monster Jam® beasts perform breathtaking stunts and can accelerate from 0-100kph in under 3 seconds.

They literally fly – covering up to 50m in a single leap (a distance greater than 14 cars side by side) and up to 12m skywards.

Tickets to Monster Jam start at just $28*!

Disney On Ice presents Magical Ice Festival - Review

I was given tickets to check out this show by the great people at Cavanagh PR. All opinions are my own.

Last week I borrowed a child (and her mother, and another of my friends) and we headed to Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne to see Disney On Ice presents Magical Ice Festival! We had a great time!

Before the show we were lucky enough to be invited into the VIP room. There was colouring in, and balloons and face painting.

Despite what you may think, face painting is NOT just for the kids!

We got to meet MICKEY MOUSE!

After gathering our supplies of fairy floss, it was time to head into the arena. The ice stage was set!

We sat back and relaxed and let the world of Disney entertain us. After a strange start where they did some Vogue-ing under the sea, we saw the story of The Little Mermaid. After that was Tangled, complete with Maximus the Horse! (How someone skates as the back end of a horse is beyond me)

After a short interval it was a Tale As Old As Time, Beauty And The Beast! The attention to detail was wonderful, with props being slid onto the ice and also popping down from the scaffold above. The lighting was also great and really helped to set the scene.

The finale was, of course, Frozen! The audience was mainly kids, and even though you could tell when they realised what the other stories were, when they realised it was time for Frozen, they almost raised the roof! Seriously, they were SO excited. Especially the girl behind me who had spend the first three quarters of the show loudly asking 'Where's Elsa?'

I took only one picture of the Frozen sequence, it's the one above and I took it mainly because there are BEES! (Look closely, you'll see them, I promise!) The rest of this bit had all the best bits from the movie, snow, ice, Sven, Olaf. The way they did the part where Anna gets frozen and re-warmed was really clever. There was even more spectacular lighting and pyrotechnics too.

The bad news is that Disney On Ice presents Magical Ice Festival has already melted down the stage and left Melbourne, but the great news is that they are going to be freezing things up at Newcastle and Sydney next! Go with your kids, go with your grandparents, just GO!
