Wipeout Wiki


The Double Cross is an obstacle which the twelve contestants emerging from the Qualifier have to conquer. This stunt and the Overdrive have replaced the Sweeper and King of the Mountain for Season 3. The first six to cross the Double Cross, move on to the next round.

The twelve competitors stand on a 10-foot-high starting platform as four planks move in a circular motion. They must enter on one of the three green planks, exit off the red plank, and cross the Unstable Table to the finish platform. They also have to avoid four sweeper arms rotating in the opposite direction. If they wipeout, they must head back and start all over.

The obstacle was first featured in S302, the first regular episode of Season 3. Competitor 'Cowboy' Andrew Sherman of the episode, is very well known for his performance on this stunt, as he passed it in mere seconds, without wiping out.

Double Cross is now the name of a pricing game on CBS's daytime hit "The Price is Right".

It is featured on Wipeout: The Game in Extreme Mode as a Dizzy Dummy obstacle.
