And without further ado, here's the all the moat ratings, from highest to lowest:

Season/LayoutAverage
Season 3: (Bifocal Monocle Day): Swinging Steps8.80
Season 3: (Roland Day): Slippery Footpath8.75
Season 2, Layout 4: (Silk Sash Day): Hanging Inner Tubes8.00
Season 2, Layout 5: (Golden Pepperoni Day): Stacked Tubes with Overhead Poll8.00
Season 3: (Smashed Printing Plate/Sforza Day): Net and Vine8.00
Season 3: (Red Sash Day): Floating Icebergs7.20
Season 1, Layout 1: King Tut's Staff7.00
Season 1, Layout 9: Scramble Across a Horizontal Ring Bridge7.00
Season 2, Layout 3: (Efoua Day): Cross Ancient Babylonian Wheels Single File7.00
Season 3: (Chandragupta Day): Balance on a Boogie Board7.00
Season 3: (Snow Cone Day): Side Scrolling Net6.80

Season 1, Layout 2: Aztec Footboard5.75
Season 2, Layout 3/5: (Nose Ring/Nostradamus Day): Swing on a Vine5.25

Season 1, Layout 4: Paddle Across on Raft One at a Time4.00
Season 1, Layout 8: Hand-over-Hand on Overhead Rope with Inflatable Tubes3.75
Season 1, Layout 5: Inflatable Tubes One at a Time3.40
Season 1, Layout 6: Paddle Across on Raft with Overhead Rope/Tightrope3.00
Season 1, Layout 3: Swimming with Overhead Rope for a Tightrope2.25
Season 1, Layout 7: Hand-over-Hand on Overhead Rope with Tightrope1.40
Season 2, Layout 2: (Mush Pot Hat Day): Shaky Log1.20

So, the "swinging steps" moat from Bifocal Monocle's filming day is the highest rated moat with a whopping 8.80 average. And the "shaky log" moat from Mush Pot Hat's filming day is the lowest rated moat with a mere 1.20 average. It's interesting how a lot of the Season 3 moats were the highest rated, most of the Season 2 moats ranked in the middle, and almost all the Season 1 moats ranked towards the bottom. It definitely goes to show you how much the moat quality improved as the show wore on. No more of the same tired, "use a rope to get across" objectives after Season 1. By the second filming day of Season 2, almost all the moats had a unique and challenging concept to it. I think we can all agree that the moats, and show in general, improved immensely in quality after Season 1.

And that's it. Hope you enjoyed this poll/topic. Up next is the ranking of all the color combinations of the show. Starting with the steps, and then the temple games. Any final thoughts? ;)

It looks like someone else voted in the poll after you finalized the net and vine average. So instead of 8.0, it looks like it should be 7.80. ;)

This is what I get for not locking votes. I'm not gonna count that one though, sorry. :roll:

NOW do you have final thoughts? ;)

Anyways, I like how all of the Season 1 moats rank towards the bottom and the Season 3 ones rank towards the top. It really tells you how much the show has grown from the very first season to the last season. No surprise to see most of the Season 1 moats rank low either. No wonder anyone thinks highly of the Season 1 because they were the same tired concept. :? But I agree with these moat rankings. Thanks for hosting this topic and it was fun revisiting each of these moats. ;)

My top 5 favorite moats:

1. Swinging Steps moat (William the Conqueror/Sir Gawain Moat)
2. Belly Sliding moat (Queen Boadicea/Pirate Captain Moat)
3. Stacked Tubes moat (Golden Pepperoni/Henry Morgan Moat)
4. King Tut's Staff moat (Belshazzar/Galileo Moat)
5. Iceberg moat (Red Sash/Apanuugpak Moat)

My Top 5 Favorite moats would be:
1. Swinging Steps moat (Bifocal Monocle day)
2. Slippery Footpath moat (Roland day)
3. Hanging Inner Tubes moat (Silk Sash day)
4. Floating Icebergs (Red Sash day)
5. King Tut's Staff moat (Galileo/Dead Man's Hand day)

So our list is almost the same, minus the hanging inner tubes moat. The net and vine moat and S1L9 moat are honorable mentions. ;)
