Monster Truck Experience

Climb aboard a Monster Truck for some oversized driving fun! These massive monster trucks both UK and US style are brilliant. They look completely mad and are utterly massive with the biggest wheels you've ever seen. It really is like the biggest toy you ever could have wished for when you were a kid. These larger than life monster trucks are available to drive or ride on these brilliant experience days.

This section rumbles merrily along with an eclectic mix of both American and European-spec monster trucks. They all start out life as a standard pick up truck of some sort, but with some serious mods, they get transformed into the massive monsters they truly are.  Read more...

The biggest, baddest monster trucks

Watch out there's a motorised monster about! Originating in the good old US of A (where legend has it a guy kept jacking his pick up truck higher and higher and that's how the phenomenon was born), this is freestyle motorsport at its very best.  Our American cousins watch monster truck shows starring these beasts in their millions with the arenas coming alive with the sound of V8 engines.

Now the love of big, big vehicles has come to the UK. We are offering you the chance to either hang out as a passenger or actually get to grips with driving one of these brutes and we thought it'd be useful if we gave you a round down of what the machines are all about. You can also see what the Car Throttle boys thought about their experience thanks to this monster truck drive day video.

Modifying trucks to turn them in to monsters

The first thing you'll notice is that big tyres alone do not make for a truck that's officially classed as a monster. Sticking big wheels on a normal body shell just wouldn't work, so although these creations are based on standard pick ups, they are heavily modified with somer seriously upgraded gear to cope with the height and weight.

For example, the US spec truck called Grizzly started life as a Chevrolet Silverado, but has been adapted with truck-style hydraulic suspension and with special axles, each of which weighs more than your average hatchback alone. Add to that wheels that are 5ft 6" tall and stick out from the chassis over a metre and you've got yourself a rather large vehicle.

The slightly less enormous European-spec trucks are usually built from something like a Toyota Hi-lux.  On these experiences you might meet Black Ice, with his 44" tyres and 18" suspension lift, complete with high-arc suspension and Ground Hawg tyres (loving the name!). The 2.4 diesel engine might be standard, but the handmade differentials from America most definitely aren't.

Now you've heard a bit about the technical specs of these things, you might be wondering how you even get inside the cab to sit in the hot seat? Well, it's a simple case of a ladder. And believe us, once you've scrambled up there, it feels really high off the ground - and that, quick frankly, is because you are. If you plump for a passenger ride you'll be perched on one of the eight seats specifically installed on the rear platform of the truck.

As for where you get to go in your big pick up, it's all about having it large over the bumps and ruts of the off road track. If you're very lucky you might even get to see the climbing prowess of the monster truck as you drive over a pile of cars making it all look ridiculously easy as you go. And don't forget, as well as the chance to drive one of these trucking monsters, you can also opt for digging, shifting and excavating with a fleet of construction vehicles.
