Season 6's Tropic Blunder

Tropic Blunder is an obstacle, first introduced in Season 6, Episode 2, as the second obstacle in the Qualifier. It would later appear in episodes 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 12, and 14. It was interchanged with the Failboxes as the second obstacle throughout the season.

Contestants had to walk along a wall with planks while trying to avoid various animals that try to knock them off (i.e., a snake, a monkey, a panther, a fish, and a lion). When the contestant steps onto the fifth plank, the lion smack wall will activate, hopefully sending contestants into the mud.

It was replaced by the returning Sucker Punch in Season 7.
