Wipeout Wiki

The Shake-a-Lator is a Season 3 obstacle on the Qualifier of Wipeout. It's most of the time used as the fourth one, sometimes replaced by the Trampoline Sweepers or the Organ Grinder. It has the reputation of toying with the contestants a lot, of which some stay on the obstacle for a long time, and of which some are as quickly off as they were on it. As soon as they attempt to jump to the final platform, it will tip making the contestants fall off.

Even though this obstacle did not return, the Jiggle-ator, a variety of this obstacle appeared in season 4.

It also has different forms like foam, balls, velvet ropes, and wrecking balls.
