WIN with Big Rush

Published

on

For the ultimate ride of your life the ‘Big Rush Big Swing’ at the Moses Mabhida stadium is a must on anyone’s to do list. Apart from being recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records as the “World’s Tallest Swing” it is also the World’s Only stadium swing because of it’s unique design. Jump into the void above the world cup football pitch and swing out in a huge 220 meter arc under the iconic arch.

All equipment and instruction is provided by our qualified staff.
Spectators are seated in the stadium where they can watch you take on the big kids version of a swing.

Jump Procedure

On arrival at the Big Rush Stadium Shop, you will first be asked to sign an indemnity waiver form. You will then be fitted with a full body harness, and taken to the practice area, for a demonstration of correct technique. Thereafter you will be accompanied to the base of the stadium arch, where you will be attached to a safety line for the ascent.
At “ladder rung 4”, a member of the Jump Crew will assist you to descend a ladder to the jump platform, and introduce you to the Jump Master, who will confirm that you have clearly understood jump procedure, and make sure you are ready for the leap of a lifetime!

He will attach you to the main jump line and count you down “3-2-1, Big Step”. After a 60 metre free-fall, accelerating to a speed of over 120kph, you will swing in a huge arc over the football pitch.

THIS IS URBAN ADRENALINE!!!
When the swinging finally stops a recovery winch will bring you smoothly back to the jump platform, where you will be re-attached to the safety line, and guided back down the arch. All jumps are relayed live to the Base Café in the Big Rush Stadium Shop, and you will be able to watch your jump on video within a few minutes of your return. Videos are available for purchase.

Eight Larger-Than-Life Monster Jam® Trucks are Heading to SA

Published

on

By

Less than a month to go until Monster Jam® races back to South Africa.

American-based Feld Motor Sports, Inc, a subsidiary of Feld Entertainment, and leading local promoter, Showtime Management, together with partners McDonald’s South Africa (SA) and SuperSport together with regional radio media partners KFM 94.5, 947 and East Coast Radio are pleased to announce the full Monster Jam truck and driver line-up.

Monster Jam starts in Cape Town at the DHL Stadium on Saturday, 22 April followed by FNB Stadium Johannesburg on Saturday, 29 April and ending at Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday, 06 May for one exciting event only at 6pm in each city. In addition, Monster Jam also features breath-taking Freestyle Motocross (FMX) exhibitions. This is unbeatable full-throttle fun for the entire family. The popularity of Monster Jam in South Africa has resulted in Pit Party tickets being sold out across all three cities in record time! Event tickets are still on sale exclusively from www.showtime.co.za or www.ticketmaster.co.za the official Monster Jam SA ticketing agent. But hurry, get into gear, seats are selling fast!

The line-up of eight Monster Jam trucks features multiple fan favourites such as the legendary Grave Digger®; Max-DTM, the futuristic SUV celebrating 20 years of Monster Jam action; mighty Megalodon®; the raging bull, El Toro Loco®; Monster Mutt® Dalmatian remembered for its massive floppy ears; the ever-popular Zombie™; regular Monster Jam World Finals competitor®, Blue Thunder®; and making its South Africa debut, Earth Shaker®. The design of the Earth Shaker truck pays homage to the trucks, machines, and construction crews that build Monster Jam tracks all over the world. Even the driver’s fire suit was created with a construction crew theme.

The all-star international drivers competing in SA are 2019 Monster Jam World Finals Speedster Champion Matt Cody (Grave Digger); Blake Granger(Max-D), the 2019 Monster Jam World Finals ATV Racing Champion; off-road short course champion and rising star Monster Jam star, Brandon Arthur (El Toro Loco); Myranda Cozad (Monster Mutt Dalmatian), Chelsea VanCleave (Zombie), successfully transitioning from racing dragsters to racing Monster Jam trucks; Tony Ochs (Earth Shaker) winner of the 2019 Arena Freestyle of the Year trophy; and Camden Murphy (Blue Thunder) winner of the 2022 Monster Jam Fan Favorite Driver of the Year. Charlie Pauken, who previously drove Grave Digger at the 2019 Monster Jam SA tour, returns to South Africa behind the wheel of Megalodon. Charlie won the 2010 Monster Jam World Finals Freestyle trophy driving Monster Mutt and has also won Monster Jam Stadium Series Championships in 2018 and 2020.

Monster Jam drivers are trained, world-class male and female athletes who have mastered not only the physical strength and mental stamina needed to compete, but the vital dexterity to control 4,500 kg machines capable of doing backflips, vertical two-wheel skills and racing at speeds up to 110 kilometers per hour to produce jaw-dropping, live motor sports action seen around the world. Now across all Monster Jam events, fans in every city will have the chance to vote for the winner in the two-wheel and freestyle competitions by real-time, in-stadium fan voting on their smartphones.

One of two female Monster Jam drivers competing in SA, Myranda Cozad loves being behind the steering wheel, be it an ATV, drag racing car or her Monster Mutt Dalmatian truck! Myranda started her career in 2016 and says her driving style “has become more and more aggressive. I love to get big air and keep the fans on the edge of their seats!” Fellow female Monster Jam driver is Chelsea VanCleave, currently competing in and seeing success during her rookie season with Monster Jam. Chelsea entered Monster Jam with plenty of motor racing experience and knowledge, both behind the wheel and under the hood. Chelsea graduated Monster Jam University where she honed her two-wheel skills and mastered hitting sky wheelies.

Tony Ochs, a 7-year veteran with Monster Jam, will make his South African debut later this month. He has been able to use knowledge from his time as a certified Apache helicopter technician and as the stunt motorcycle crew chief for Feld Entertainment’s Marvel Universe LIVE! to master driving these mechanical Monster Jam beasts. Ochs is looking forward to visiting South Africa and to showing his competition skills.

Standing four metres tall and four metres wide, the custom designed Monster Jam trucks are powered by super-charged engines delivering more than 1,500 horsepower. With tyres 1.7 metres tall, a Monster Jam truck can jump as far as 43 metres in length.

South African fans will witness heated rivalries, high-flying stunts and fierce head-to-head battles for the Event Championship. Engineered to perfection, Monster Jam trucks push all limits in Freestyle, Skills and Racing competitions.

It is not long now until Monster Jam is back in SA! Limited seats available. Avoid disappointment, book now only at www.showtime.co.za or www.ticketmaster.co.za. Ticketmaster is the only official Monster Jam SA ticketing agent. There are significant risks in buying from other sources and entry to a Monster Jam event is not guaranteed.

Please note the following important information. Children under 3 years are not permitted. Strictly no unaccompanied minors. Fans are encouraged to wear earplugs or earmuffs in order to let your family enjoy the fun while reducing the exposure to high levels of noise. Professional cameras are not permitted.
