The
Scareground:
Starting on a spinning peppermint-colored platform, the players have to jump from one rotating yellow/red Sweeper Cross to the other while on one of its four blue planks. From a blue/yellow spinning platform at the Midway stage, they then have to dodge a sidewinder w/ the title of this program on it & then slide down to hopefully the finish platform.


Advancing to Round 3:

1. Trisha
2. Whitney
3. Amanda
4. Ari
5. Alec
6. Nat

Petrified Forest
:
At least the debut edition has a "Hunger Games" theme. It starts w/ a zip-line to the One Tree Forest, at which point they have to jump to a small, rocking mud pit (where they could be hit by the two fake arrow shooters from above) to the finish zone. And they're all wearing animal hats.


ADVANCING TO WIPEOUT ZONE:

1. Whitney
2. Amanda
3. Ari

WZ:
Bombastic Blob (which launches via a half-ton steel bar)/Swing Blades/Torrential Twisters (which spin counter-clockwise)/Tectonic Planks (you must get over at least one of the two pegs above each plank before you can try jumping to the next plank)


RESULTS:


Whitney
: 12:24.64

Amanda
: 9:03.71

Ari
: 7:51.48- WIN!
