The structure was the first structure made within Achievement City by Matt and Jeremy, who according to Geoff took down the original construction and built the new tower. This caused Geoff to change up the game from each individual Hunter fighting against each other except for a defending Plan G (him and Gavin) to a more traditional Team Lads versus Team Gents match.

Beginning in Episode 135, the Achievement Hunters began expanding Achievement City outside of its previous boundaries. A fence was placed around the original boundary. The only way to leave the original world is to go through one of four giant doors that were built along the fence, one in each of the four cardinal directions (this rule was originally stated by Geoff when the world was first expanded but has since been largely ignored by the Achievement Hunters, Geoff included).

  • Cake Walk - A structure consisting of several stacks of cakes sitting on top of a layer of glass blocks, which floats above a pool of lava. Geoff flies around the bottom, breaking the glass blocks which makes the cake stacks on top disappear, while the others run around on top of the cakes trying not to fall into the holes that Geoff creates.
