Main Storyline Progression
On The Island, there are four Arenas for fighting the game's Bosses: Broodmother Lysrix, Megapithecus, Dragon, and finally the Overseer.
Main Storyline Progression
These arenas in this section follows the main storyline for the entirety of ARK:
The King Titan Arena, Desert Titan Arena, Ice Titan Arena, and Forest Titan Arena are featured in the DLC: Extinction as part of the map rather than a separate section. All of the bosses (Titan) summoned are within the map, rather than being found in their own Arenas.
The Moeder Arena is featured in DLC: Genesis: Part 1 where Moeder, Master of the Ocean resides during the mission.
The VR is featured in DLC: Genesis: Part 1 where Corrupted Master Controller resides. Survivors must have cleared enough mission to trigger the fight through HLN-A.
The Terminus is featured in DLC: Genesis: Part 2 where the now mutated Edmund Rockwell resides. Survivors must have cleared all missions of corresponding difficulty in the ship to join and/or trigger the fight underneath Rockwell's Proliferation (Genesis: Part 2) mission terminal. This is the last canon boss before ARK 2 takes place.

These arenas in this section does not follow the main storyline for the entirety of ARK:
The Manticore Arena is featured in the DLC: Scorched Earth where survivors must defeat the Manticore.
The Center features an arena where both Broodmother and Megapithecus must be defeated at the same time. Likewise, Ragnarok features an arena where both the Manticore and the Dragon must also be defeated together.
The Forsaken Oasis is a boss arena featured in the DLC: Valguero where survivors must deal with Megapithecus, Manticore and Dragon. There is a separate arena of fighting against Broodmother as well.
The Center Arena
Crystal Wyvern Queen Arena
The Broodmother, Megapithecus, and Dragon Arenas are located under each of the three Obelisks. To reach these locations, players must go to either a Supply Crate or Obelisk and place the required tribute items inside, then click on the Generate Broodmother Portal, Generate Megapithecus Portal, or Generate Dragon Portal items. At this point a portal will be opened to teleport nearby players and dinos into the arena.
The Overseer Arena is accessible by completing the Tek Cave in the Volcano's caldera and teleporting to the Observation Deck.

Entering / Leaving the Arena
- PC version
To be teleported into the arena AND out of the arena, you MUST be dismounted.
- If you are mounted when you teleport into the arena, you teleport and dismount
- If you are mounted when you teleport out of the arena, you teleport and dismount
- Xbox version
- If you are mounted when you teleport into the arena, you teleport and dismount.
- If you are mounted when you teleport out of the arena, you don't die, but your dino gains a large amount of torpor.
Extinction and Genesis
Teleportation to the Titan summoned area or bosses in Genesis does not require you to dismount.
Equipment and Structure Restrictions
- No structures may be placed in the arenas. So avoid forming plans that revolve on building. If you attempt to place anything, the message "No ground or snap point available" will be displayed.
- Grappling hooks may be taken into the arena, but once equipped in a crossbow they cannot be fired. (May be related to why Thylacoleo does not teleport into arena.)
- Quetzal, while itself can be warped into Manticore Arena, may not warp inside if it is wearing a Platform saddle with at least one structure.
- All Tek gears and Tek saddles are banned from mainly the island Boss arena (Excluding Tek Cave/Overseer Arena) and Manticore Arena, and attempting to wear it inside when entering will either force unequip it, or drop at where the boss was summoned)
- You will lose summon items and dinos only upon running out of time or dying within the arena. Similarly, if no survivor are inside the arena when the portal is pulling dinos in, all the dinosaurs will die immediately. This excludes the arena at Extinction and Genesis: Part 2.
- Due to the harsh consequences of a failed boss fight (see bullet point above), it is extremely advisable to prepare before attempting a boss fight. Watching online videos of other ARK players completing the Boss fight is a good way to elaborate your strategy in advance. However, there have been a lot of changes to the Boss Arenas during the development of the game, so ensure you are watching videos recorded after the last patch changing Boss Arenas. Also Singleplayer Bosses are weaker than Multiplayer Bosses, but never underestimate the Bosses.
