Hollywood Stunt show Zug - Monster truck

Hi all,
Is there any folks that have seen the two Monster trucks close to the highway ramp in Zug? They seems to be advertising for an upcoming event called Hollywood Stunt Show. There also seems to be billboards around town.
I, however, cannot find any information online about this event, like location and time.
Has anybody heard about it?
Would be appreciated!

Possibly it's an old poster which hasn't been taken down. Seems it was back in July.

Shame. I know a little boy who would have been super excited to see that. Next time, then...

I saw that article too, but the Monster Trucks at the entrance of Zug were not there in July (date of that event).

Don't miss the next opportunity. There is only a short window when they will think such things are just the coolest ever. Then they grow up. Or in some cases not.

(And if yours is going to become a monster truck fan, you want to know about it before you allow him to apply for a driver's lic.)

I know that there is a show this Sunday at 11am and 15pm near Hilti in Zug (Grienbachstrasse), but I can't find the entry price.

Re: Hollywood Stunt show Zug - Monster truck

Do not go to this show if you are considering it.

We saw this band of idiots in Affoltern am Albis a couple of years ago. The same story, we saw a poster for the Extravaganza and thought it would be fun to take the boys.

Well, the reason it's not widely advertised is because it must be illegal.

These guys made some space between two industrial buildings. There was no safety barrier between the crowd of people and the stunts being performed on scramblers and a shitty old BMW 3 series. If you're into monster trucks, this ain't it.

After a few minutes we realised the danger and decided to get the hell out of there. We heard the next day that one of the vehicles had indeed ploughed into the crowd and people were injured.

It's an amateur outfit, a bunch of cowboys and I'd be really surprised if it were in fact legal.

Re: Hollywood Stunt show Zug - Monster truck

Sorry but how can you say it's probably illegal when this has been covered extensively in such a variety of papers and this show has taken place tons of time over years!
You can argue about whether it is elegant or crude or vulgar or whatever else, but illegal? In Switzerland? With half a dozen performances over the last couple of years? No way.
Just do a quick google search or check out many pictures on this: http://www.rigianzeiger.ch/flammende...-blechschaden/
