Recurring Survivor Challenge
Description: A recurring challenge
Appearances: Worlds Apart

Air Raid is a recurring challenge on Survivor. It debuted in Survivor: Worlds Apart and has since re-appeared in Survivor: Cambodia.


At the start of the challenge, tribes must race up a tower and through a series of obstacles. Once all tribe members have made it to the top of the tower, they will each take turns launching sandbags with a giant slingshot, attempting to hit targets out in a field. The first tribe to hit all six targets would win.


In Survivor: Worlds Apart, though Escameca was first to the top of their tower, Nagarote came from behind to narrowly win the challenge, winning beef stew feast and hot chocolate while watching sea turtles lay eggs.

The challenge was used again on Survivor: Cambodia. Though all three tribes were relatively equal early in the challenge, Stephen's gaffe for Bayon ultimately handed the win to Angkor. Despite Spencer's efforts to salvage his tribe's situation, it was of no use, as Keith won for Ta Keo, sending Bayon to Tribal Council for the first time.
