Gatecrasher is a recurring challenge from Survivor.


Each tribe uses a puzzle log to break through two sets of gates; then, they must turn, pull and push the puzzle log to navigate a maze that is worked into the surface of the log. Once the log is cleared from the maze station, the first tribe to hit a gong at the end of the course wins immunity.


In Survivor: China, both tribes plowed through their first gates with their heavy puzzle log. James and Jean-Robert muscled the Fei Long log through the second gate and headed to their puzzle station, as Zhan Hu's over-worked Dave could barely lift his part of the log. In a split-second decision, Frosti switched positions with Dave in order to catch up for the lost time and finally broke through the second gate. However, it was too little, too late for Zhan Hu as Fei Long conquered their puzzle and rang their gong to win immunity.

In Survivor: Cagayan, the challenge was used as the Immunity Challenge immediately following the tribe switch. At first, Solana had the lead, but Aparri quickly made it up when they switched Spencer and Jeremiah to the front. It was even heading to and through much of the table maze; however, Aparri slipped through a bit faster, ringing their gong and winning immunity.
