Entry fees are $20 for insects and 12lb, and $30 for 30lb. Due to time and space constraints, a team may only enter robots into either the insect weightclasses or the bigger weightclasses. You may not compete in both arenas. Weekend Maker Faire Orlando passes will be given to each team member. We will email you to complete the Maker Faire Orlando registration which will be required to get event credentials. This step MUST be done to receive passes for Maker Faire Orlando! The process is being simplified for 2022, and we will email details when they are available.

Robot Ruckus will be run in conjunction with Maker Faire Orlando being held at the Central Florida Fairgrounds located at:

4603 West Colonial Drive
Orlando, Florida 32808

Check in will be on Friday November 4th, with limited check-in Saturday morning. Volunteers to help setup/tear-down the arenas on the days before are greatly appreciated, as are volunteers to help keep the event running! Whether it be judging, robot wrangling, or crowd control, etc, any help that can be given is fantastic.

Maker Faire is a family-friendly event with lots to do for all ages. Invite family and friends to watch you battle and enjoy all the Maker Faire has to offer. Learn More!
