Season 2's Gauntlet

The Gauntlet is a group of obstacles in the Wipeout Zone in Seasons 2B and 3.

There are two or three obstacles used in the Gauntlet, and if contestants wipeout on one of them, they have to swim back and start the whole thing over again.

The Gauntlet would later reappear as a Round Two course in Seasons 8 and 9, now with checkpoints added back in.
