Shriveled Richard

With 60,000 pounds of ice, Shriveled Richard is no joke. The bone chilling experience will take your breath away as soon as you dive in.

Slippery Incline Wall

Close Tab

Obstacle:

Slippery Incline Wall

Slippery Incline Wall can be intimidating when you first come up to it on the course.  Get a running start on this 16 foot long, 12 foot high incline or else you'll be out of luck getting the conveniently placed rope.  Occasionally, we'll throw some water onto the ascent to make it more of a challenge.  With a firm footing, you'll have no problem getting up this bad boy.   Completion Rate: 65%

Next Obstacle

Block Party

Close Tab

Obstacle:

Block Party

We're having a party!
