BattleBots Take Over The Last Vegas Strip
BattleBots has been around since 2000 when it aired as a show on Comedy Central. This always seemed like an odd fit as there is nothing comical about two robots fighting a fight to the death inside a cage. Yes, the robots are controlled by humans and some of them have funny names, but the premise is basically UFC, but until one robot stops working.
Now, after several TV revivals, BattleBots has another unexpected TV home on the Discovery Network. Fighter robots have also found a home on the Las Vegas Strip in a warehouse-like building located behind Caesars Ballys (soon Renamed the horseshoe).
The building is called the BattleBox Arena, and the building was the site where “BattleBots World Championship VII” was taped live on Discovery in January. Fighting robots will be back in action early next year in a new live show, The Las Vegas magazine review mentioned.

Prices range from $49 for general admission, with $150 family “packages”, and $125 for VIP packages where guests are allowed to see the robots and their teams up close before and after the show.
The latest show in Las Vegas is more WWE than the UFC. The human handlers are actually actors playing the role. They are not the actual designers of robot fighters.

It will feature the most famous combat robots on the planet, and they will fight to the death every night,” BattleBots CEO Trey Rusky told the Review-Journal. “It will be the fiercest show in Las Vegas where no Nobody gets hurt. The robot apocalypse is starting soon! “
