New for this year, event-goers can see some of the machines from the television show “BattleBots” live and in-person during Robot Ruckus, the largest and only live open heavyweight tournament in the U.S.

In addition, a VIP fundraising event will be held on Saturday, Nov. 9 from 6-8 p.m., where participants will be able to see and hear from over a dozen elite combat robot builder teams who have competed on “BattleBots.” Only 1,000 tickets will be sold for this event. You can learn more here.
