Wipeout

Splatalot! is a medieval-themed physical game show which premiered in Canada on Corus Entertainment's YTV on 14 March 2011, hosted by Jason Agnew and Matt Chin. It premiered in the United Kingdom on the British Broadcasting Corporation's CBBC on 13 June 2011 with Dick and Dom as hosts and in Australia on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's ABC3 on 5 November 2011 with Kayne Tremills and Scott Tweedie as hosts. The series was inspired by the game show Wipeout, designed for a younger demographic. The British and Australian CBBC and ABC3 broadcasts of the show used the same filmed footage as the original Canadian YTV version, but with local presenters providing commentary.

Splatalot! was produced by marblemedia and commissioned as an international co-production by Corus Entertainment, the British Broadcasting Corporation and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. It featured a large, extreme obstacle course and three rounds of competition: Cross the Moat, Ditch the Dungeon (Escape the Stockade in the first series), and Capture the Crown. Each episode featured a different group of 12 teenage contestants (known as Attackers) competing against not only the obstacles and the clock but also the Defenders. The Defenders are an international squad of nine medieval-themed gladiators, who are tasked with protecting the castle from the Attackers. The winning Attacker is crowned King or Queen of Splatalot!. This king or queen was able to then choose a defender to punish in one of many ways, such as throwing them into the water with a catapult.

Production

The series was produced using a 2.5 acre set built on a 50-acre lot (previously used to shoot The Adrenaline Project) owned by marblemedia in Amaranth, Ontario, Canada and featured contestants from Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia.[1] The company had spent a year collaborating with theme park engineers to design the course.[2]

The first season, consisting of 26 episodes, was shot on location in September and October 2010.[3] On 3 February 2012 the series was renewed for a 26 episode second season.[4] It was shot the following summer.[5]

Following the recording of the series, the set remained abandoned and was a popular attraction for trespassers.[6] The set was later demolished in 2018 as part of a series called "Smashalot!".[7] At the beginning of the first episode, reasons are listed for the demolition, including YouTubers, being too costly to repair, having unpaid property taxes, crack-dealing and opposition from the local community.[8]

The Attackers

Contestants, known as "Attackers" were drawn from schools and sports clubs from across Canada, United Kingdom and Australia. They consist of children aged 12 and up. A different group of attackers feature in every episode.

The Defenders

Splatalot! featured a recurring cast of Defenders, consisting of six charismatic young adults. Each episode featured 3 Defenders per round, (but all six in the Final) ensuring that the audiences never see the same lineup twice. Each Defender has their unique persona, color, costume, and signature weapon as well as their gimmick (akin to that of a supervillain) - they work together to incite laughter and most importantly, impede the Attackers until one of them proves that he or she is worthy of the crown of Splatalot!.

In season 2, Knightriss, Shaiden, Ballista, Tinkor, Gildar, and Crocness have left the show, but they returned to the screen for the show's American run on BYUtv. Only Kook, Thorne, and Skabb remained from Season 1, with Madeva, Faetal, and Vane coming in as replacements. Gildar appears for The 'Celebrity Splatdown' only to announce his departure from the show, and was mentioned in ‘Teachers Vs Students Splatdown’ and 'Sleepy Matty (Dicky in the UK, Scotty in Australia)'.

The Defenders are (In both seasons):

Rounds in Splatalot

Round 1: Cross the Moat

Round One sees the Attackers challenged with overcoming a series of large obstacles consisting of barrels, the battle axes, the bridge of disaster, and the Defenders. They start by getting thrown into the water from a catapult and must cross the moat in order to possibly advance to the next round. This round looks at how long it takes them to cross the moat as the fastest six Attackers move on to the next round.

Round 2: Escape the Stockade (Ditch the Dungeon in the second season)

In this round the Attackers must go up a long staircase, known as the 'Loathsome Ladder.' The Defenders try to stop them from reaching the top of the stairs by using the trademark slime balls, a foam gun and the Vile Volley, a gun that shoots slime balls. There is usually always a Defender at the top of the stairs who uses the Purple Plague (a cart full of purple balls) and the Balls of Doom, very large green balls that are pushed down the staircase to knock the Attackers off. The fastest four Attackers to overcome the obstacles, ditch the dungeon and capture the four flags at the top of the stairs advance to Round 3.

Round 3: Capture the Crown

In Round 3, the remaining four Attackers must race across the obstacle-ridden courtyard and up to the tower where the crown lies in wait. In their path are all 6 Defenders from both rounds taking up various positions around the courtyard, wielding various weapons and devices to impede the Attackers' progress. In the end, only one Attacker will make it past the Defenders and capture the crown, winning this week's episode. Afterwards, they raise the flag with the Defenders clapping and the winner says the catchphrase, "I'm the king/queen of the castle" in Season 1.

In Season 2, they will choose a Defender to throw into the moat. They are not allowed to pick multiple and can only choose one to do this to. In the event of the night round, the Defender will be blindfolded on the Scary-Go-Round and will have to try and get over it, always ending up with them falling into the moat. The Attacker who wins the episode will announce which the Defender they would like to punish by saying; "My/Our first act as king/queen/ruler of Splatalot is to have one of you thrown into the moat/swamp. I/we wish I/we could do it to/it could be all of you, but today/tonight, it will be you, (insert Defender here)!"

Interactive

As a companion website to the TV series, Splatalot.com featured Flash games and behind-the-scenes bonus material, as well as Defender and Host bios and other features. In 2013, the Splatalot! Dash! mobile game was released on iOS and Android platforms. It was followed by Splatalot Attack: A Hero RPG in 2017.

International broadcast

The Canadian version premiered on Nickelodeon in the United States on 16 July 2012.[10] The British version aired on Disney XD channels in the EMEA regions.[11] Dutch broadcaster Z@PP filmed their own host segments with local talent Ron Boszhard and Viviënne van den Assem in 2012.[12] Splatalot! has been seen in over 100 countries worldwide.[13]

On 13 March 2018, BYUtv announced that they had acquired the rights to air the series in the United States. On 2 April, the channel began running the first season of the show with new hosted segments starring Stacey Harkey and Tori Pence.[14] On 8 October, the channel began airing the second season, again with Harkey and Pence hosting.[15] Both seasons are now archived on the stations website with Harkey and Pence's commentary remaining exclusive to the network.

Reruns can be seen on the Canadian game show channel GameTV, starting in the fall of 2019, and again in spring 2021.[citation needed]

Smashalot!

Following the conclusion of the second season's production in 2012, the show's unattended set in Amaranth, Ontario attracted the attention of trespassers. A YouTube video by user Bright Sun Films exploring the location garnered over 600,000 viewers before being pulled a year later at the request of marblemedia.[16][17] The set hadn't been dismantled as the producers continued to pursue a revival of the show. Due to safety concerns, the township's mayor had requested the presence of around the clock security.[6]

In late 2017, marblemedia confirmed it was developing a family-oriented revival set to begin shooting in the summer of 2018.[18] However, those plans were abandoned and the set was later demolished in January 2019. marblemedia turned the demolition into a YouTube spin-off series called Smashalot!.[7][19] Featuring former contestants and YouTube personalities (including Bright Sun Films) destroying a segment of the castle in each episode, the show is hosted by Jason Agnew and Gildar.[20]
