Over the years, a lot of great concerts and of course, basketball games have taken place at Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, South Carolina. But perhaps nothing as monster-size as what is about to drive into Colonial Life Arena. And that is the Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live Glow Party!
Yes, Soda City is about to be treated with gigantic, larger-than-life monster trucks who crush down on smaller cars. These trucks will be competing in epic battles and competitions. Not only that, but the twist this time is that all this takes place in the dark!
The cars will help light up CLA. Plus, there will be laser light shows throughout the show. Other highlights include Hot Wheels toy giveaways, a dance party, Freestyle Motocross tricks, and even an appearance by ARCTICGON, a frost-breathing, transforming dragon. In other words, you are in for a great show.
Hot Wheels Monster Trucks will be in town right before Halloween, from October 28th through October 29th. On Saturday, there will be shows at 12:30 PM and 7:30 PM. On Sunday, there’s a show at 2:30 PM.
If you’d like to attend the show and save money (and why wouldn’t you?), keep reading to find out how to get a discounted ticket.
So here is my money-saving hack. If you purchase your ticket here, then you’ll save up to 30% on your ticket. No promo code or coupon code is even needed since the discount is automatic.
But don’t wait – I waited to purchase my ticket to Jurassic Quest in Columbia, and the discounted ticket sold out. I was able to go, but I had to pay full price. So don’t let this happen to you!
