So worth stopping for! My husband and daughter love monster trucks, and it was really cool to see the garage and trucks around the site. You MUST do the truck ride through the woods, its so worth it! Adam Anderson actually drove for our tour...More

We stopped here on our way home from Corolla, NC. My son is 4, and loved getting to ride in a real monster truck. It was only $5 per rider, so well worth it to us. The shop was clean, and had great monster truck...More

We left Wilmington, DE around 9:30 AM and arrived a little after 6PM (we made a few stops along the way). The A/C was not working on the middle level, but the night was cool enough that the oceanfront sea breeze thru the open windows worked to cool the house down from the 80 degree temp inside. I called Resort Realty at 9AM on Monday and a service tech responded within the hour. He replaced the outside condensor unit while we toured the aquarium. Tuesday we drove back to the mainland and...More

wachovia arena monster truck jam (4 Replies)
Hi by boys love monster trucks, and I was thinking of getting tickets for them to see the show, BUT when you call the wachovia arena and ask what trucks are going to be there for example : Grave Digger they say they do not know! has anyone ever seen the show? and was their enough room for the trucks to do jumps? we have never been to the wachovia arena! Thanks in advance.

Saw the sjow 2 years ago. Had Gravedigger and 3-4 other trucks, + quad races. There is room for some jumping, crushing, etc, not so much for a lot of high-speed runs, etc. Still a pretty good show, and you're close to the action
