The Springshot is an obstacle, used as the first obstacle in Season 4's Spring Wipeout Zone, replacing the Bobsled Blastoff from the Winter Wipeout Zone of the same season.

It is a modification of the Bobsled Blastoff, which it replaced. It is a mechanical spring where contestants lie down on their stomachs. Then the lid closes, and on the last second of the countdown, the spring speeds up the track, and when it reaches the end, it shoots them out through the air into the water below. On the first episode of Spring Wipeout, it was filled with colored balls.

It was used for the first four episodes of Spring Wipeout before it was replaced by another launch obstacle in the next three episodes, Chairborne.
