Season 1's Dreadmill (Tennis Dreadmill version)

The Dreadmill is a Round Three course used in Season 1. It was interchanged with the Dizzy Dummy as a Round Three course for the entire season (except for episode 9, where the Cookie Cutter is used instead).

Contestants run down a long conveyor belt and must make it from one end to the other as fast as possible or stay on it for as long as possible. The fastest or longest four times move on to the Wipeout Zone.

It was removed from the Round Three lineup in Season 2.
