We want you to send us a video of yourself screaming. Why, you ask? Because we’re putting together the world’s first “Scream Choir,” inspired by the most common sound people make onour rides. We even hired a real composer, Bob Smart, to help us do it.
Auditions for the choir are open to people of all ages and screaming abilities. If selected, you’ll have two rehearsals with Bob. By the end of the rehearsals, you’ll be screaming a classical song like a total champ for a special live performance.
Auditions close June 18th. To learn more about how to submit your audition, visitscreamchoir.com

This past weekend at the Pacific Coliseum we had the pleasure of hosting the Monster Jam – Triple Threat Series! We had 8 Monster Truck drivers competing in 3 different events for the Triple Threat title. The Monster Trucks that tore up the Pacific Coliseum were: Monster Mutt Dalmatian, Grave Digger, N.E.A, Mohawk Warrior, Scooby-Doo, Max-D, El Toro Loco and Zombie!
In preparation for Monster Jam we had over 100 dump truck loads of soil loaded into the Pacific Coliseum. A total of 1200 cubic meters of soil, weighing a massive 1800 tons was needed to cover and protect the Coliseum floor. 1 Excavator, 1 Bull-dozer, 1 Front end loader and 2 bobcats were used to move the soil and build the jumps for this amazing event! Check out the time-lapse video below of the soil being loaded into the Coliseum!
Prior to the 1:00pm show on Saturday, guests were invited to come see the trucks and meet the drivers during the Pit Pass Party! We had over 2500 people attend the Pit Pass Party which made it one of the largest arena Pit Pass Party events! Take a look at the Pit Pass Party time-lapse video below!
