4 Hamburger Hill Steep natural uphill to get your blood flowing as you conquer the hill. Don’t worry you can cool down with a nice bath in the mud pits.
9 Cargo Climb Climb and descend your way over this 14’ high obstacle like a ladder. If you’re afraid of heights don’t look down from the top! A fellow Mud Hero will always be there to help you over.
5 Swamp Run

Get muddy in this natural and freaky mud bog.

7 Inverted Walls These slanted walls will be sure to challenge you. Pick between two different heights to challenge your abilities, but remember to lend a hand to your fellow Mud Heroes that may need it.
8 Muddy Lagoons Once you finish trudging through these you’ll resemble the Creature from Commando swamps.
11 Mazes

You won’t get lost in these mazes, but they will keep you on your toes.

12 King KONG

19 Fenced In Float your way through these trenches on your back and use the fence to pull yourself to the other side! But don’t worry, you won’t have to put your head under this mud.
21 Backwards Bullfrog Pull yourself backwards up this slippery slope. You’ll get wet as you slide your way through.
22 Mud Slides An all-time favourite of our Mud Heroes! Slide down this exhilarating drop to the mud pit below, but hold onto your glasses and cameras as this monster has been know to collect them.
23 Victory Bath Final Mud Pit! Float your way under the cargo net and emerge a true Mud Hero as you head to the finish line.
