Storyline

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

Have fun watching Fun House!
18 February 2017 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This was an exciting and educational game show I used to watch when I was a kid - a fun one where two-member teams of children compete to answer questions and complete stunts, with the winning team going through the "Fun House" to collect as many tags, which each represent prizes, as they can.

Lots of exciting stuff to see here, from answering educational questions to passing through obstacles and messy stunts - all in a race to beat the clock and become the winner at the end. The adrenaline continues on with the prize hunting, which serves up another wild round of excitement.

J.D. Roth does a great job hosting, keeping the show energized and displaying a professional yet cheerful demeanor with the kid contestants. Good show for the entire family.
