Tune In: Live from 2018 Obstacle Beta Testing

By TMHQ | October 17, 2017


Obstacle Innovation is in full swing and the Obstacle Innovation Team is spending the week in Las Vegas tinkering away. We’ll be Live from the dessert this Saturday October 21st with some behind the scenes action and 2018 obstacle sneak peeks. That’s all we’re saying for now, but you can bet that 2018 isn’t just going to be badass - it’s going to kick badass in the butt and drag it through the mud, all the way to epic. 

So in the meantime, take a look at some of the 2016 and 2017 Extreme Obstacle Design Challenge submissions that you WON'T be seeing on course. Are we a tease? You bet.

Cube Crazy

Harder to crack than a rubix.

Ladders of Success

This obstacle won last years Extreme Obstacle Design Challenge

Tug of War

Created By: Andrew

This event consists of one team hoisting people up a steep wall, and down a steep drop. I.e. start training now.

Shocky Bars

Created By: Maxwell

Not at all like the innocent monkey bars of your childhood, “Shocky Bars” encourages the crowd to laugh at you, using your face to break the fall. Athletes propel across a deep, muddy drop with nothing but random electrically charged rings.

All Aboard!

Created By: Henry

Upon first glance, All Aboard seems like a splashing good time. Until you read the fine print - wobbly and weak planks barely float in a man-made bog of mud of sweat.

Spider Monkey

Created By: Jonas

Half the challenge of Spider Monkey is removing the splinters afterward.

Ball Buster

Created By: Rachel

The physics and construction of this obstacle are not the first thing which comes to mind. While this challenge would perfectly suit a hungry season of Survivor or the final caper of Lara Croft, a one-at-a-time approach to obstacles could tank the whole thing.

Tower of Babble

Created By: Steven

No such thing as too much rope. 

Perpetuum Muddilee

Created By: Sascha

Upper arm strength for days.
