I agree it should be the same width as in Viking. I actually loved the Cannonball Bridge in Viking.. despite the faceplants.. it should be that distance between to have it's full effect! I hope it returns in one way.

I thought this was a really fun obstacle to watch, and it proved itself as a legitimate threat early on. Sometimes with a certain amount of time left, clearing the WW made some clears anti-climactic. However, with the Spinning Bridge there this time it felt like a real obstacle that was a good "final test" to Stage One.
Higher! Higher! We can't stop the tower's gettin' higher! Higher!
I think it would be a good third obstacle, placed between the Rolling Escargot and the Jumping Spider. It would kinda be like the balance obstacles that were in or near this place pre-Shin-Sasuke (Balance Bridge, Cross Bridge, and the other ones that lasted a tournament or 2); however, difficulty-wise in comparison to the rest of the current Stage 1, it would probably work out pretty well.
I think it was easy looking because we had all the "good competitors" attempt it. Put it anywhere before the Jumping Spider and there would be a bloodbath of competitors falling there. Think of all the comedians, celebrities, and other less skilled competitors on it.
I would agree moving it, but either put it where the Half-Pipe Attack is or swap it with the WW. That way people only have the WW left, and with the right time limit could force people to rush and thus fail there.
It's a great obstacle. The majority of better competitors still clear it, yet it provides us with some hilarious bails for those who fail it. Maybe it would be better in the earlier part of stage one, perhaps before the spider jump.

Getting flashbacks of Viking when you said this. That was early in the course and caused some serious (and funny) fails.. I would love to have it moved and more importantly placed further apart like it was in Viking. That alone will change how people are somehow perceiving this obstacle as "easy".

I agree with everyone that the 5th obstacle is the perfect spot for this, Although one thing I'd fear from that is people getting too much momentum coming off of that and the Soritatsu Kabe being a joke
