The Travel Channel will soon be airing a new game show starring Bert Kreischer, better known as Bert the Conqueror, called Scream: If You Know The Answer. The contestants will be challenged by Bert with trivia questions and mind games, all while riding a roller coaster. I believe it’s an American version of a British show of the same name. The show will be filmed at Six Flags Magic Mountain and they have been actively recruiting potential contestants from within the park. There is a table setup in front of Studio 6F, on the backside of the park, where you can fill out an application to be on the show. But you better hurry, because according to their sign they are going to start shooting on Monday:
I suspect they will be taking applications all day tomorrow, but I’m just guessing. There weren’t too many people stopping by the table. I almost walked right past it myself, not knowing what it was. Although I would have loved to, I did not personally apply for the show because I am not able to make myself available for the full two days they require for the filming.
As I continued through the park, I noticed a bunch of activity inside and around the Whistlestop Park gift shop. As I approached, it was obvious that the gift shop was long gone. When I asked what was going on, I was informed that they are using it as the temporary production offices for the show while it’s being filmed in the park. While I know they have to work somewhere, I think it’s odd they chose the very middle of one of the children’s areas. I feel sorry for all the little kids coming in to ride the trains and they have all these production type people coming and going.
The show is being produced by Lion Television and you can read more about it here.
