Battlebots on Display

There are several bots on display in the Robo Riot zone, but the most well-known is the Witch Doctor
 
Robot Fighting isn’t just a TV show with larger than life robots.  Robot fighting events happen across the country year-round for all ages.  Many of the participants on Battlebots actively participate in events for smaller bots, that’s how most got their start.  
 
The arena on display was custom made in Las Vegas for Robotic Combat and shipped to Florida for assembly. It’s made of bulletproof glass. The spinning blades on these robots spin in the thousands of RPMs & can slice right thru each other. That’s the reason for the thick kick plates around the bottom of the arena.
