When you arrive and begin the challenge, there is an obstacle course for you to go through, and you must ferry this large Olive through the course. You need to be behind this Olive to direct it in the correct direction to make it to the end.

You want to make your way forward, reach the end of the path, and then take a left. Rather than continue going forward, take another left, and avoid the Smoliv and the person blocking your pathway.

Continue down this way until you reach another open area. Again, another person and a line of Smoliv blocking your path. We recommend sticking to the left side of the obstacle course and weaving around this area to reach the end. Your goal is to make it to the large red basket on the other side.

Upon reaching the other end, you will have completed the Olive Roll challenge, and you can now challenge Katy to a Gym Battle.
