The Turntables are an obstacle used in the Wipeout Zone of Season 2. It was interchanged with the Gauntlet in its location in the Zone.

It consists of three spinning platforms with varying obstacles that contestants must cross. When they stand up with both feet planted on the last turntable or the finish platform, the clock will stop.

Variations have included:

  • Tackle Dummy Turntables (Wipeout Bowl I: Cheerleaders vs. Couch Potatoes): Three turntables with tackle dummies that contestants must cross to reach the finish platform.
  • Bumper Turntables (Episodes 2 and 14): Three turntables with pillars that contestants must cross and stand up with both feet planted on the last one to stop the clock.
  • Wedge Turntables (Episodes 4 and 10): Three turntables with wedges that contestants must climb up and over or hold onto before they can jump to the next and climb to the top of the last one to stop the clock.
  • Torrential Turntables (Episode 5): Three turntables being showered by icy cold water that contestants must cross and stand up with both feet planted on the last one to stop the clock.
  • Foamy Turntables (Episode 8): Three turntables filled with foam that contestants must cross to reach the finish platform.
  • Dodgeball Turntables (Episode 12): Three turntables filled with dodgeballs that contestants must cross while staying below the wrecking balls to reach the finish platform.

This obstacle was also used as part of the Gauntlet with the Piston Punch and the Dangerous Drop Bridge, but there was only one spinning platform with varying obstacles that contestants must cross. In two episodes, it was replaced by the Blades of Fury.

Variations have included:

  • Foamy Turntable (Episode 1): A turntable filled with foam that contestants must jump into and out of to the platform.
  • Bumper Bally Turntable (Episode 3): A turntable with balls attached to posts that contestants must jump onto and off to the platform.
  • Gazebo Turntable (Episode 7): A turntable with a gazebo that contestants must jump onto and off to the platform.
  • Wedge Turntable (Episode 9): A turntable with a wedge that contestants must climb up and over before they can jump to the platform.
  • Bumper Turntable (Episodes 11 and 13): A turntable with pillars that contestants must jump onto and off to the platform.

It was fully replaced by the Gauntlet in Season 3.
