PHOENIX — Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live is coming to Gila River Arena for its first-ever trip to Glendale later this year.

Fans of all ages can enjoy an exciting line-up of iconic Hot Wheels Monster Truck toys come full size in a kid-focused, Hot Wheels experience.

Tickets for the event, which has two performances on Aug. 6 and one on Aug. 7, can be found on the website.

The tour will bring fans the opportunity to see favorites such as Bone Shaker, Tiger Shark, V8 Bomber and Demo Derby, as well as the all-new Mega Wrex and Race Ace, according to a press release.

The event will feature the car-eating, fire-breathing transforming robot Megasaurus and the high-flying Freestyle Motocross portion of Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live.

Fans can expect “over-the-top smashing, crashing and epic monster truck competitions and battles,” according to the release.

A Crash Zone Pre-Show Party will occur prior to each performance to give spectators who purchase the ticket an opportunity to see the designs and size of the monster trucks up-close.
