If demolition-style monster truck action—replete with high-speed racing and awe-inspiring crashes—is your thing (and whose thing is it not?), the Monster Truck Jam is your event. Among the trucks featured are Grave Digger (the world’s best-known monster truck, driven by famed veteran Dennis Anderson), Blue Thunder, Monster Mutt, and Anger Management. This sport is so popular that January was Monster Jam month at Burger King, with six Monster Jam toys in the kiddie meals (including, of course, Grave Digger). Want more info? The Monster Truck Jam website (monsterjamonline.com) answers frequently asked questions, including “Do babies need tickets?” Answer: No, because they can sit on their parents’ laps. Obviously! There is no LIRR stop, but there is a bus terminal opposite the Coliseum (for bus info, call 516-228-4000).
