Bridge the Gap


I'm just curious if anyone has any theories/knows why they decided to move Bridge the Gap over the water, give it a better design and then ditch it after two times? emoticon

I know building water Bridge the Gap was probably cheaper than a lot of the games they only build and play one time, but the more I think about it, the weirder it seems. You'd think if they upgraded the look, they would've stuck with that version for longer than the first, but quite the opposite happened.

I guess my best theory is that they had some money to throw-around and decided the new version hadn't improved the game enough to keep it, so just scrapped it.

Anyone else know?

Re: Bridge the Gap


As seen in the subtitled Episode 67 in one of the MXC DVDs, Takeshi said he thought Bridge The Gap and Fish Food were boring. He probably thought adding water to BTG would make the game better before combining both games to make Wipe Out.

Re: Bridge the Gap


Yeah it seems like a way to improve that game that ultimately failed. I can understand why they dropped the game. Once a player makes it to the second board it's inevitably that they'll win. I can imagine some found it boring to wait for the board to spin around and have the contestant just walk to the finish platform.

Re: Bridge the Gap


I understand that there's only one real exciting part, though I didn't really mind since only about one person per ep got past it!

My confusion is more down to changing the setting of the game, but Jonnie's probably right.

Was Wipe Out filmed in the Bridge the Gap pond? That actually seems plausible, but can't really remember at this point!
