This is Blue Peter, but mini.
Expect epic adventures,
presenters at your post.
We've only got five minutes to get ready for your Blue Peter adventure.
This is it.
Two Blue Peter presenters and one whitewater rafting challenge.
SCREAMING AND LAUGHTER
We've learned about boat safety...
Get down, guys, get down!
..and got a little wet in the process.
Now, we both get one attempt
to guide a raft for a mile and a half
through one of the hardest, steepest sections of the river.
Down rapids, through rocks
and over ravines without falling in.
The fastest time wins.
But it's not that simple.
Across the course, there are three lifelike Blue Peter presenters.
We must hit each one with our oar,
or incur a 50-second penalty.
Miss just one of them
and the race could be lost.
The time will stop
when we put our oars in the waterfall.
This is one of those challenges that could go either way.
I'm pumped about this. I'm genuinely really excited.
'I'm up first.'
And we're off!
'Before I can feel comfortable,
'we hit a section of the rapids called The Graveyard.'
'I'm going at such a speed, I need to stay in control.
'I have no idea where the first target is
'and I don't want to miss it.'
Is it on the right or the left? The...
Right, left? Left, forward, right. Stop, stop...forward!
Got him! And go!
Forward! Get down!
'This is incredible and I'm soon on to Lindsey.'
Keep the concentration, guys.
'It's all happening so fast, I can barely take any of it in!'
This is good, team!
I need to get Radzi.
'But just as the end's in sight, I start to lose control.'
We'll let it spin, let it spin!
'And we're losing precious time.'
Let it spin, let it spin, let it spin!
And forward, please, team!
30 metres to go!
I...I made a couple of mistakes, but do you know what?
I gave it the beans the whole way.
The team went with me and now I've just got to see how Lindsey gets on.
OK, that's good.
'We're off. I'm starting well.'
'I make it safely through The Graveyard.'
For the spin, everyone lean to the right!
Oh, no! Have I overdone it?
'But I'm struggling to reach him.'
OK, go! Forward.
'And before I know it, the raft is out of control.'
Oh, my goodness!
'I'm getting faster, much faster.'
'But is it enough?'
I've got him.
Got him! Go!
'Radzi's done and it's a race to the finish line.'
How was that?
So much fun. It went like that.
-I don't remember what happened.
-Do you not?
But it didn't feel fast enough.
I think you were faster.
It's up to our instructor, Duncan, to give us the results.
So the results are in. How do you think you did?
I think I would give that, like, an 8 1/2 out of 10 for my run.
Sadly, I don't think mine went as well.
It felt slow, but it was all a bit of a blur.
I was having too much fun.
-So the good news is there were no timed penalties.
Radzi, you did your run in six minutes and two seconds.
you were five minutes and 45 seconds.
-Which means you were the fastest.
I thought you had that!
