Depending on the current state of re-opening, we expect to be able to offer spectators the chance to come watch the matches live. We will make a final call on spectators on May 8th. We plan to open our doors for spectators at 9:30 a.m. We plan to charge $10.00 for all day access for all spectators over the age of 2. Robot combat is dangerous and there will be weapons and dangerous things around. We will ask you sign a release prior to entering the space.

  • Food trucks in the parking lot.
  • On-site concessions
  • A collectible badge that allows for all-day re-entry
  • A staff-guided tour of the pits
