Season 2's King of the Mountain

King of the Mountain is an obstacle, first introduced in the Wipeout Bowl Special as the only obstacle in Round Two, being interchanged with the Sweeper for all of Season 2.

The twelve contestants stand on 10-foot-high pedestals as a platform moves in a circular motion. They must jump onto the platform, make their way to one of the stairways, and climb up to one of the six spots on the edge of the mountain. They also have to avoid two giant clubs (and sometimes rubber donuts) rotating in the opposite direction. If they wipeout, they must head back to their pedestal and start all over. The first six contestants to make it onto the mountain move on to the next round.

Along with the Sweeper, it was removed from the Round Two lineup for Season 3.

A similar obstacle, named Scary Go Round, later appeared as the third obstacle in the Wipeout Zone for Season 2.
