Season 6's Octopushy in Round Two

Octopushy is the second round that appeared in episodes 1, 4, 8, 10, 11, 13, 15, and 16 of Season 6.

The twelve contestants begin together on the starting platform elevated 10 feet above the water. Then, at the sound of the horn, they’ll jump onto one of the rotating circles and make their way to the other side while avoiding the octopus' four arms. If they go under the arms, they must head back to the beginning. Finally, they must jump to the finish platform, timing it just right. To make the dismount more difficult, a rumble bridge was added to the finish platform. Throughout the round, foam spews out from the octopus' head and into the play area. The first six contestants to make it across move on to the next round.

Along with the Miami Pound Machine, it was replaced by the returning Sweeper and a new course, Space Race, in the next season.
