“Contestants from all walks of life ranging from ‘Have a Go Heroes’ to ‘Superhuman Athletes’ are invited to take on the challenges of the course.

“Viewers will be entertained by both those who can superbly execute the course to those who spectacularly fail, crashing out of the course into the water below.
