Season 2's Raging Rapids

The Raging Rapids is an obstacle that appeared as the second obstacle of the Wipeout Zone in the second season, replacing the Barrel Run. It was interchanged with the Gears of Doom as the second obstacle throughout the season.

It contains a steep ramp with water flowing down that contestants must climb up and try to avoid being washed away by a one-time 1,000-gallon tidal wave. This tidal wave has varied during the series, being either water, mud, or drink (sports drink and blue drink). Once contestants reach the top, they must exit to the right and immediately attempt the Climbing Wall without a break.

In Season 3, it was replaced by both the Spin Cycle and Gut Busters.
