I am trying to get a better feel for some marketing on this. We raced pro monster trucks for years and now are settling into something different for a bit. We are building a monster truck ride for kids/adults alike and will be hosting birthday parties for kids, etc. I am trying to include a picture and want to see who likes it, hates it, etc.

I think the truck's name and graphics are inappropriate for a child's party.  I think it would make a fun limo for bachelor parties or groomsman.

 I'm not sure what you mean by your building a ride.  Like you'd take kids for a ride or they'd get in the truck and it would move around on its own?

I agree with PP, I don't think the graphics are appropriate for small kids.  It could be be a great idea.

hmm..I don't know. The graphics don't bother me, but maybe if I had a son and he was old enough and into monster trucks, I might consider it.

this is a toughy!!  i know kids are more exposed to things these days and I like the graphics but not sure how i would answer the question "mom what is a hustler?"  I have to say i am not sure.

As a mother of boys I would be on board with this. Aside from the graphics on the truck not so much.

My 3 year old would love a monster truck party. I, however, would have an issue with him posing next to a truck called "Hustler."

Honestly, I'd need more info. How long is the ride? What do you do on the ride? How much does it cost?

I usually try to keep my party budget between $100-200, and so if it costs more than that I would say no.

To quick clarify, I am mostly intersted in the graphics/name. Hustler has both positive and negative connotations. Money and times and the base idea isn't what i am looking for feedback on. However, it would probably be a few rides with a total drive time of 20 minutes give or take (there will be other things going on too, such as cake, pinata, games, etc) Just wanting to see how many people are opposed to the graphics/name. Thanks everyone for the imput thus far! Keep it rolling. I need a clear "mom" vote to present to marketing! THANKS!
