The current Robot Wars Arena is the sixth incarnation of the Robot Wars Arena, used for the three rebooted series of Robot Wars. The arena was custom built at a previously unused warehouse in Westway Park, Renfrew, in Glasgow, making this arena the first to move outside of England, and was designed by Robo Challenge. The wooden painted flooring of old was replaced with 6mm steel, with the arena walls being described by BBC Two's Twitter as "bulletproof".
The arena consists of a square, 6mm steel surface with an area of 15x15m surrounded by high steel walls, and a gap to the "bulletproof" panels. This outer box has an area of 20x20m. The walls consist of a solid wall of slightly higher height than previous arenas, with high bulletproof panels on top of most of the walls. There are three robot entrances - one in the middle of three of the walls - where the high bulletproof panels do not exist: these are theoretically the only places where a robot can throw another out of the arena.
