Florideah Swampfest 2018 took place in the Astatula Central Florida Motorsports Park… Greeted by a monster truck at the end of a long driveway you already knew what kind of venue it was. The spot was quite open, but that didn’t hold back the craziness that was about to kick off.
The best thing about the weekend was that you could do whatever you wanted whenever you wanted, everything was always open. There was no real designated camping area either, people just kind of parked next to the course and that was that.

Kids started sending the loop from the get go, hyped up by friends – no matter how good or bad the first attempt was everyone got right back up and sent it again and again, and this thing was big.
The first half of the day was filled with people arriving, catching up with old friends and meeting new ones as well as getting their first runs in through the jumps or around the park course. Sessions were going on constantly.
