Wipeout Wiki

Hell's Carousel is the third obstacle in the Wipeout Zone of Season 7.

It is essentially an upgraded version of the Crazy Sweeper, while also borrowing a few elements from the Miami Pound Machine and Frostbite. Contestants must run across a series of pedestals without being knocked off by the sweeper arms attached to a fast-moving carousel spinning counterclockwise. There is a small ledge that wraps around the central pillar, which they can use to their advantage like Andy Tibbitts did in episode 11.

Only three contestants have cleared this obstacle:

  • Josh Clark (S7E4)
  • Jordan Barker (S7E6)
  • Derek Stusynski (S7E6)

In the TBS revival, it was replaced by Leap of Faith (not to be confused with the Qualifier obstacle of the same name).
