Ever wondered what it’s like to drive a monster truck? Well, you can have the opportunity to find out – sort of – at Convoy in the Park at Donington Park on August 10-11.
Drivers can pilot pocket-sized replicas of well-known monster trucks including Big Pete, The Grim Reaper, Swamp Thing, Podzilla and Slingshot. It claims to be the only attraction of its kind in Europe.
These petrol-engined mini trucks are driven around a designated course with each driver getting about five minutes behind the wheel. It makes for great entertainment for all ages and were a popular part of Convoy in the Park last year.
Of course, safety is paramount with the mini monster trucks. Their speed is restricted, and full safety equipment is provided, such as safety helmets, seatbelts and remote control kill switches.
Height restrictions apply (minimum 44 inches). Children below minimum height must be driven by an adult. Note also that prices apply.
