The Slider Drop (スライダードロップ) was introduced as the first obstacle of Stage Two in SASUKE 25.

It was essentially a modified version of the Stick Slider and the Slider Jump. Competitors must jump up and latch onto a bar (5.5 meters above the water) and then slid the bar down a track, which had one drop. The bar, even though it had stoppers on it, must be kept relatively straight in order for it to stay on the track. The bar had to stay even in order to prevent the bar from sliding off the track. At the end of the track, competitors could let go and fall onto a landing pad.

In its first appearance, only one competitor (Levi Meeuwenberg) failed on this obstacle, but three competitors failed in SASUKE 27, including Flip Rodriguez and Shin Sedai member Tajima Naoya.

After Urushihara Yuuji's second kanzenseiha in SASUKE 27, it was replaced in favor of the Cross Slider in SASUKE 28.
