SEE heavyweight fighting robot behemoths like Last Rites and Sewer Snake wipe the walls with each other inside our custom built bulletproof arena!
THRILL to all the good parts of a NASCAR crash without all that pesky danger to human life! All the excitement of monster trucks, but up close and extremely personal!
FLAME THROWERS! SPINNING BLADES OF DOOM! HYPER-PSI STEEL FLIPPERS OF NASTINESS!
Also, it's educational for the kids, but you don't have to tell them that. You'll also be able to speak with the people who design and build the robots -and you have a combat robot, you'll want to enter! http://www.suicidebots.com/2010/10/05/combots-cup-v-looms-fighting-robots-live/ -Thanks, Simone!
