A kid's game show that pitted two teams of two players each. The contestants had to answer trivia questions and participate in challenges, such as trying to nail targets in the audience seats with water balloons. This was followed by a race between the two teams around a track that involved a variety of bizarre push carts. The team with the most points at the end of the game got to enter the Fun House. The two teammates took turns running through the collection of wacky rooms and obstacles to find tags that represented the prizes printed on them. The contestants won all prizes printed on the tags that they collected and took out of the Fun House before the two minute time limit was up. Written by Annonymous

A look from the inside
22 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My husband was on this show when he was in Jr. High. He said he had a blast, and out of the people he met, JD Roth was the nicest and most down to earth. To the person who said he was a bad host for catching the kids off guard: everything was scripted. They have a dry run of everything BEFORE the taping, including every question asked, so kids were never caught "off guard" on camera, simply stage fright.

He said that the cheerleaders were a lot older than they appear but wore a ton of makeup, everyone was nice, and that everyone was short too. His episode was one of the most replayed because the kids that he was supposed to play didn't show, so the producers kids stood in. Also, the game was decided by 15 points, or one "token" so it was a great, close episode.

I saw the recording on it and remember the old commercials. The best was a commercial with a young, pre-fame, Jonathan Taylor Thomas. Overall he had a great time, and even though they lost he got free BK Knights shoes, Gitano Jeans, a free copy of the board game (that he still has!) and memories for a lifetime. Great, fun show for kids.
