The Wipeout Zone is the final stage of the show. The top four contestants compete for the best time in the USA version, and in the UK version and Seasons 4 and 5, it's the top three. There have been twelve Wipeout Zones since Season 1, the first one (aired, not 1x09) being the Killer Surf, Barrel Run & Climbing Wall, Spinner, and Launch Pads. Since then, there have been numerous additions such as the Gears Of Doom,Crazy Sweeper, Crankshaft, Spin Cycle, The Great Wall of Fall, Iron Maizen, Point Break, Coin Toss, Scary Go Round, Frostbite, Springshot, Frozen Fury, Commakaze, Spinergy, and many, many more obstacles.
