“In this episode, contestants will have to save an iconic Canadian legend dangling high above the valley bottom”
The Amazing Race Canada is the most-watched Canadian TV attracting nearly 3 million viewers each episode. The 2018 Heros Edition kicked off with the largest stunt in the series history – rigged by SlacklifeBC. Contestants found themselves standing on a spacenet suspended high above the valley floor where they had the task of leaping into the abyss, falling nearly 30 meters into a rope swing, saving a plush beaver in the process.
SlacklifeBC was contacted and asked to pitch several different stunt ideas. Our team of experts were able to conceptualize, plan and pitch several ideas for epic stunts that would challenge contestants and capture breathtaking footage. The production team decided the rope swing was the best option and without fail, SlacklifeBC delivered a stunt that far exceeded the production team’s expectations. After the host of the show did his test swing, the producers said “That was the shot of the series”, and the first episode hadn’t even started yet!
