Season 2's Aqua Launch

The Aqua Launch is the first obstacle in the Wipeout Zone of Season 2, replacing Killer Surf from the previous season. It was interchanged with the Catapult as the first obstacle throughout the season.

It is a bumpy water ramp contestants slide down on an inner tube, a sled, a bodyboard, a kayak, or their backs and attempt to control their launch into the Wipeout Zone. Compared to Killer Surf, there is significantly more water running down, and a small bump is present near the top.

Theresa Rivera was the only contestant to injure herself on this obstacle, leading to her elimination.

It was removed from the Wipeout Zone in Season 3.
