Game show + Roller coasters = ?

I don't have cable (yeah, I'm cheap), so I didn't find out about this until reading Deadspin this afternoon, but Cartoon Network is debuting a new game show on June 20 called Brainrush, where contestants will have to answer questions... while riding a roller coaster.

From the clip, it appears that the questions are ridiculously simple, given that you get the answers from the host. But can you remember jack while flipping upside down at 60+ mph? Hmmm, we'll see.

That said, I totally want to do this show. I've done game shows. I've done TV on roller coasters. I'd have this in the bag... which is why they'd never let me on in a zillion years.

Still, it looks a lot more exciting than "Cash Cab." Your thoughts?

Amusing to watch once or twice, but will get old real fast.

Seems similar to the British and American Gameshow Distraction which used to be on Comedy Central.

Could his reactions after the lift hill be any faker. I love coasters but definantly don't plan on watching this.
