Swept Away is an obstacle, used as the second obstacle in the Qualifier in Season 5, Episodes 13 and 19.

It was a Sweeper Bar that spun counterclockwise to take out contestants. When idle, the sweeper bar is placed at chest height, but if the contestant jumps, the bar would raise up and still hit them (similar to those used on the Ski Lift). Instead, in order to beat the obstacle, they had to duck underneath to get past it, and contestants are not penalized for doing so.
