      • The Eliminator has been revamped once again. Contenders have a 32 ft Versaclimber to go up. Once at the top, they slide down the slide and cross over the hand bikes, where the Gladiators will detain the contenders if they fall. Once they cross over the Gladiators, they have to run across spinning cylinders and then climb up the cargo net. Once up the cargo net, they take the zip line down the arena and then climb up a clear wall where they have to run up the reverse treadmill. The contenders have 2 chances on the treadmill and then the 3rd time, they walk up the side. Once on the treadmill platform, the contenders then swing through a gridded paper barrier to end the Eliminator.

      • The Gauntlet makes its debute this season.
        In the Gauntler, the contender has to maneuver themselves down a half tube through 5 zones where the Gladiators attempt to prevent them from advancing. If the contender gets out in under 20 seconds, they score 10 pts. If they make it out in under 25 seconds, they score 5 pts. If the Gladiator pushes the contender out of the playing area, the contender will start at that zone where they were pushed out.

      • Whiplash makes its debute this season.
        In Whiplash, the contender and the Gladiator are strapped to a dogbone. The contender has 30 seconds to attempt to get the gladiator out of the ring. If successful, the contenders wins 10 pts. If the contender or Gladiator uses both hands for support, they are disqualified.
