Steam Maze Shotgun Carousel Tara's Test


Hello, William. Before you are six of your most valuable associates, the ones who find errors in policies. Their findings result in over two-thirds of all applications denied or prematurely terminated. Now you must apply your analysis to them, and will you be able to find their errors? Six ride the carousel, but only two can get off. The decision of which two survive falls upon you. But remember, the mounted gun will continue to fire until all six rounds are spent. And if no decision is made on your part, all six will perish. To offer the two reprieves, you must press both buttons at once in the box before you, however in doing so, you will give a sacrifice of your own. Two can live, four will die. Your decisions symbolized by the blood on your hands.

Jigsaw explains the rules


Shotgun Carousel
Sawvi02
Information
Appearances Saw VI, 3D(Box only)
Also Known As "The Carousel", "The Dog Pit", "Merry Go-Round"
Type of Trap Test
Victims Aaron (failed; deceased); Emily (survived); Gena (failed; deceased); Dave (failed; deceased); Shelby (survived); Josh (failed; deceased)

The fourth test, The Carousel Room, was revealed in a teaser clip to promote Saw VI. The trap consists of six of William's junior associates: Aaron, Emily, Gena, Dave, Shelby, and Josh (in order of when they were stopped by the carousel), chained to a rotating playground carousel inside of a large metal cage. At the front of the cage is a pulley and chain attached to a shotgun which is pointing at the carousel. The carousel repeatedly slows to a halt with a random victim facing the gun. This test applies to the fact that the six junior associates are the ones that find the information that allows them to deny coverage, resulting in two thirds of all applications denied or prematurely terminated. That must be applied to them, meaning that only two thirds of the six will die. William is forced to make the choice to place his hand inside a metal box and press two buttons simultaneously, causing a metal rod to pierce his hand in order to prevent the selected victim from being shot, or choose not to and let the victim be shot point-blank in the chest by the gun, thus killing the person that is in the gun's path. Unfortunately, William is told that he can only save two of the six people on the carousel and in the end.

William chooses to save Emily, the second and Shelby, the fifth person to be stopped by the carousel, while the other four associates: Aaron, Gena, Dave, and Josh are shot and killed by the mounted gun. William finds a key in the next room, unlocking the final strap from his body, and proceeding on to his final test.

Original Idea: According to an audio commentary with director Kevin Greutert and writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, there was supposed to be ten people riding the carousel (they changed it to six seeing as it is the sixth Saw film). Also, the shotgun would be placed behind the victims heads, rather than in front of their chests.

Pleas and Screams

The following quotations of the six that ride the carousel trying to appeal to William's new policy:

S.U.R.V.I.V.E.

Following the Carousel Trap carnage, survivors Shelby and Emily escape the Waverley Zoo Pavillion and exit. After making their police report, Emily enters the Bobby Dagen Jigsaw trap survivor support group and follows his outstretched false story of surviving a Jigsaw Trap involving hoisting himself onto a platform for escape with hooks inserted in his pectorial muscles.

Saw 3D

When Hoffman is looking for Jill in the Police Department, the same box of the carousel trap can be seen as soon as the front on a sort of table

Trivia

  • This is one of the deadliest saw traps due to having to kill four people to pass.
  • This is one of the traps were mutliple people have to die.
  • The shotgun used in the trap is a Remington 870 Express with a seven-round extended magazine tube. Hoffman likely obtained this shotgun from the police department.
