Awesome House
14 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is my forth favorite game show and it's of course another childhood gem. It's true it takes it's cues from "Double Dare" it's nothing really new but it's the execution that makes it stand out let alone the Fun House itself which is just awesome looking, I wanted to be a contestant in this game so I could run that house myself.

The theme song to the show is very good and I even like the host mainly the UK host whom really fits like a glove for this show as he really presents lots of energy and charisma, let alone has a wild haircut to go with it.

This game is pretty much simplistic physical fun and I like that, I always love the game shows where you got to do more than just simply answer questions, because with the physical games you get to be active with your body. But also shows you don't have to be a sports star or athlete to play these games, as long as you move and put in your best effort you can play and most importantly actually have fun doing it.

I really liked some of the physical challenges which are just creative and colorful, their like the kind of games you play on a park outing but turned up to 11; to this day I'm still wondering where they got most of the ideas as a few challenges are daft. My favorite one was no doubt was the go cart race, which was always awesome as I love go karts, even like the design of the mini track.

And of course the payoff is the Fun House itself. The design is just fantastic, it's sort plays out like a live action platform video game as the Fun House is full of colorful obstacles from slides, ball pit, fake refrigerators, just all kinds of things to see to believe.

However it's not as simple as getting from point A to B, there are a few catches. For one thing it's a relay race as each of the contestants have to go in and back again but they have to collect and find each of the tags in order to advance and for the other contestant to run the fun house. Second each contestant doesn't run the same pathway their assigned to run a different pathway with whole different obstacles, which makes it all the more tricky but all the more fun and non redundant. And third of course is that darn timer so they need every second to find those tags and just jet across point A to B. This part of the game made me cheer the hardest as I was always hoping the team will be able to complete the obstacles on time or just move fast enough.

Another thing I really like about the Fun House is that it always changes into something different after a certain amount of episodes or each season which is cool because it keeps the game fresh and a little unpredictable, you never knew what new things will be brought to the house.

Fun House is a whole lot of fun.

Rating: 4 stars
