Risky Reels featured a small crater (similar to the one at Dusty Divot, but not as large) in the center of the area surrounded by trucks. It had a similar 'Movie' theme to Moisty Mire and offered small huts and houses on the outskirts of the area. It was noteable for the giant cinema screen located at the front of the location, as this was where the cinematic 'Season 4 Trailer' was filmed.
Additionally, in the game files, you could find a short video of Ralph from "Wreck-It Ralph" walking into the frame from the side, waving at the camera, and then walking off. This "film" could be seen displayed at Risky Reels on the movie screen. Showing time of the movie was random, and did not display in some matches.
During The Game Awards 2018, it was revealed that Risky Reels has been crushed by the new and now-gone The Block. Rapscallion and Carbide tried to escape the outbreak, but ended up being killed by the crashing of The Block, as the season's Battle Pass skins visit to inspect.
Chapter 2: Season 1
West of Frenzy Farm is Risky Reels. But it didn’t look the same as before.
On Week 6, the projector has been tested out, showing a llama on the screen. Many adjustments are made on the projector.

On December 14, 2019, director J.J. Abrams visited the island to reveal a scene premiere from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker as part of the collaboration.
Chapter 2: Season 2
During Week 7, Epic began testing the projector for the second time, but we didn't know for what until the next patch.
An in-game event called "Now Playing!" was featured in Risky Reels as part of the Fortnite x Quibi Collaboration. This mode was quickly removed, however. It screened the first episodes of Punk'd's reboot and The Sauce. This was because of impossible showings during the COVID-19 crisis, as to what Chance the Rapper said.
Later this season, it was changed from a landmark into a point of interest once again.
Chapter 2: Season 3
At the beginning of Week 1, most of Risky Reels completely flooded, leaving only the roofs of buildings and the giant movie screen accessible.
Around the end of Week 2 and the beginning of Week 3, more of Risky Reels was uncovered, letting players access the second floor of the blue building and the whole of the giant movie screen.
Risky Reels is no longer flooded as of Week 5, with the vehicles being scattered around. There are two cars that are golden.
- Risky Reels was a named location in Chapter 1, in Chapter 2: Season 1, it returned on the Chapter 2 map as a landmark, then became a named location once again in Chapter 2: Season 2 and went back to being a landmark in Chapter 2: Season 3 due to it being flooded.
- Risky Reels is one of the Chapter 1 locations to return on the Chapter 2 map along with Pleasant Park, Retail Row and Salty Springs.
- When Risky Reels was uncovered in Week 5, there are 2 cars that are golden that Midas could have touched.
