Wipeout Wiki

The Rocket is a Round Three course in Season 2. It's a similar obstacle to the Bucking Bull.

Each of the six contestants must stay on a flying rocket ship for as long as possible. The ship is situated 15 feet in the air and at the end of a rotating arm and has lots of turbulence. They also have to avoid being knocked off by one of the planets in the Wipeout Galaxy. As time goes on, the rocket ship will move faster and faster. Unlike with the Bucking Bull, contestants can use both of their hands to hold onto the rocket ship. The longest four times move on to the Wipeout Zone.

In episode 3, they had to deal with meteor showers, while in episode 6, they had to deal with Astronaut Major John Henson spraying rocket fuel at them.

It was removed from the Round Three lineup in Season 3.
