The Castaway (キャスタウェイ) was the third obstacle in the First Marine Stage in the first two regular VIKING tournaments and the fourth in VIKING 3. It consisted of a yellow sphere 60 cm in diameter and a zipline track 10 meters long. Competitors had to jump off a small platform and wrap their arms around the top of the sphere and ride the zipline down towards a net they have to propel themselves to. Once they hit the net, they climb over and proceed to the next obstacle. Many of the failures were spectacular as most competitors flipped into the water after missing the sphere. It was also possible to fail on the net if the competitor landed wrong.
