If you like your entertainment loud and action-packed, this event won’t leave you spinning your wheels, although there’ll be plenty of those in the show.

Monster Truck Chaos, which rumbles into Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre in Victoria for shows on Saturday, Jan. 25 and Sunday, Jan. 26, is a great way to get 2020 started in high gear.

Rock Star, Identity Theft, California Kid, Spitfire, and Skeletor are some of the 10,000-pound, car-crushing monsters scheduled to compete in racing and freestyle action. Joining in the mayhem is Freestyle Motocross, with riders performing an array of tricks like Cliffhangers, Double Seat Grabs, and the Backflip. There’s also an opportunity to ride in a real Monster Truck, with ride truck operators charging a cash only fee.
