Monster Jam was SO MUCH FUN - we got to go right next to the TRUCKS!

This weekend we had the chance to go check out Monster Jam at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence. It was so fun! You have the option to add on to your ticket and go to the Pit Party which is totally worth it if you want to get up close to the trucks and have the chance to meet the drivers!

The fun thing about it being at the Dunkin Donuts Center in an enclosed arena is that you actually got to go on the floor and step on the same dirt that the trucks will ride on. The Motocross bikers were also there to talk with fans and answer any questions. It was relieving to see that folks were masked (as required by the venue) and there were activities for the kids. On the way to the seats after the Pit Party we walked past the truck part graveyard - that was fun to see and amazing to see how much dirt dust was all over everything. I can't imagine the cleanup that must go on!

We brought protective earphones since we knew it was going to be a loud time and sure enough it measured over 100 decibels on my phone with an app. The kids had an absolute blast and enjoyed seeing trucks where the tires were bigger than them! We can't wait for Monster Jam to come back to the area - hopefully at Gillette Stadium next!

Apex Entertainment is a great place for family fun for everyone offering bowling, karting, arcade games, and more

Apex Entertainment in Marlborough, MA is a great place for family fun for everyone in the family with karting, bowling, arcade games, a ropes course suspended above the games, bumper cars, laser tag and more!

We had the opportunity to check it out and were quite impressed with all of the activities they had. You can easily spend a few hours in the arcade area alone, so be sure to plan ahead with how you want to spend your time otherwise your entire day will go by before you know it!

We went to try all of the activities and had an amazing time. My daughter absolutely loved the ropes course and the arcade. For the ropes course you’re harnessed in and then walk high above the arcade along with a guide to help you get from point A to point B.

While you’re there you can go bowling, visit the arcade, and have a great meal. We tried the largest pretzel in the entire state of Massachusetts and it did not disappoint!  There is truly something for everyone here.

I had a blast going on the karts with my brother in law and thank goodness they gave us the track to ourselves. He was a pro at driving the kart, but it was my first time and I didn’t know what to expect, so I bumped into the side walls a few times. They have a rule, if you hit the side wall three times you’re out. Thankfully, I didn’t do that and let’s just say I drive a car waaaaaaaay better than how I drive a kart.

NOTE: We were provided with passes for bowling, arcades and activities at Apex Entertainment in order to facilitate this review. No other compensation was provided. There was no promise made of a positive review and all opinions, as always, are our own.
