Rollercoaster trivia game causes Brain Rush

January 9, 2010 at 7:13 pm

Brain Rush created by Michael Krupat for Cartoon Network; 2009.

Imagine having to answer trivia questions while riding a rollercoaster.  Now imagine you’re a preteen or teen and you’re going to win money—potentially more than $5,000!  That’s the premise of Cartoon Network’s reality show, BrainRush.  In fact, the winner of the show has ridden three rollercoasters and answers trivia and general knowledge questions on all of them.  The series is rated “G” for general audiences, and although it features tweens and teens, the upper elementary aged children in my neighborhood are buzzing about this show.

I am happy that a reality show for kids revolves around knowing things!  I imagine this show could be adapted for a library program, such as requiring kids to assemble puzzles while answering questions in a set amount of time.
