CLEVELAND -- WKYC's Joe Cronauer visits Monster Jam, an event that attracts more than four million fans annually at arenas and stadiums throughout the world.

Monster Jam events showcase freestyle and racing competition among custom-designed machines that average 12 feet tall by 12 feet wide, sit atop 66-inch-tall tires and weigh a minimum of 10,000 pounds.

Built for short, high-powered bursts of speed, monster trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour.

Monster trucks can fly up to 125 to 130 feet -- a distance greater than 14 cars side-by-side -- and up to 35 feet in the air.
