Splatalot! is a medieval-themed physical game show for kids inspired by Takeshi's Castle and Wipeout. It premiered in March 2011 on YTV in AnlgoCanada, CBBC in the UK, and ABC Australia. It has been on Nickelodeon in the USA since July 17, 2012. It also airs in over 100 coutries in Africa, the middle-east, and eastern Europe on Disney XD. Splatalot! is produced by Toronto-based marblemedia.
The North American version of Splatalot! is hosted by Jason Agnew and Matt Chin, the British version by Dick and Dom, and the Australian version by Kayne Tremills and Scott Tweedie.
Splatalot! features a large, extreme obstacle course and three rounds of competition: Cross the Moat, Escape the Stockade, and Capture the Crown. Each episode features 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!
The Splatalot! page on Nick.com has lots of information about the show, the Defenders, and some video clips.
The international Splatalot! web site, http://splatalot.com, currently shows the season 1 web site to most of the world, but if you are in Australia, the U.K. or Canada, the link redirects to the broadcaster site for that country.
The Splatalot! games are played by millions of fans each week.
