This was a very well put together show that me and my wife enjoyed very much! I hope to volunteer to be in the show on our next trip!

I wish that anything changed about this show ever changed, especially since it's about a show where the stunts are different every single episode. NOPE, the show is exactly the same as when it opened, and so is the dialogue and the suprisingly slow pacing. Fun once, but Horror Make-Up and Animal Actors are both way better.

I found this to be entertaining, just make sure to look away when they eat the gross stuff... unless you're stomach can handle it.

I was surprised how much I liked the show as I hate the Fear Factor TV Show.

I didn't think it was a good start when the presenter started and if I'm honest I thought it was going to be rubbish. But once the tasks started with just normal park goers, I thought it was really good.

The tasks where brilliant and some of them towards the end had some great special effects and the presenter gets the crowd going and it was an enjoyable show.

The only reason I gave this only 3 stars was that the show was exactly the same at Universal when I went around 6-7 years ago and it is getting slightly dated and needs rejuvenated.

I avoided Fear Factor like the plague when it was on the air because I can't stomach watching people eat gross things or handle creepy, crawly creatures. So I was definitely a little squeemish when my girlfriend suggested we take in this show. Luckily, for anyone with a weak stomach...they kept those portions of the show to a bare minimum. As I remember, they took a few volunteers and had one eat some random mix of junk type shake, but aside from that, most the challenges were physical. The one thing I left thinking was..."God, I need to join a gym!" No way could I have made it through those games, but it was fun watching others and cheering them on. An enjoyable, shaded break from the sun. Def. worth checking out once.
