“Wipeout” Takes Over the Santa Monica Pier Today – April 4th

 TBS’ Wipeout Big Balls are back in a pop up activation, in LA. They’ll be taking over the Santa Monica Pier starting today, through Sunday, April 4 from 10am-10pm, just in time for the hit show’s premiere tomorrow on April 1.

TBS is celebrating the return of the hit TV show, Wipeout, with a multi-city experiential activation called “Big Balls Are Back” in Los Angeles, as well as Chicago and Dallas. Taking place March 31-April 4 in Los Angeles, Wipeout’s iconic big balls will pop up on the Santa Monica Pier at a whopping 25 feet tall and 70 feet long for fans and visitors to enjoy. This COVID-safe, touch-free, interactive activation in the form of an art installation will surprise and delight fans and visitors alike by appearing on the middle of the Santa Monica Pier the day before the show’s premiere and throughout the weekend.

Fans of all ages are invited to stop by and participate in the photo opportunity in front of the big red ball installation and mock contestant-style interviews for fun photos and video content for social. The Wipeout “sideline reporter” will be asking all the tough and hilarious questions. Consumers are encouraged to stop by and share their soon-to-be best Instagram photo, telling their friends and followers why they have “big balls.” At the activation, fans can also scan a QR code and enter the Wipeout Bracket Battle for a chance to win the grand prize:  $1000 gift card and exclusive Wipeout swag.*
