A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The game is meant to be fun. Teams have to work together and cooperate to get across.
Positive Role Models
Contestants come from all walks of life. Most appear physically fit. They are competitive, but appear to have fun.
Violence & Scariness
People leap, bang into things, and fall and disappear into the lava. People occasionally seek to avenge the "death" of a person who falls to his/her/their elimination, but this is more funny than violent.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
There are occasional quick references to dating, Tinder, and hurting your genitals during the game. All of this is more funny than sexual, and will probably go over kids' heads.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Floor Is Lava is a family-friendly game show based on the classic kids' imagination game. Teams must maneuver their way across a tricky obstacle course for a cash prize; if they end up in the "lava," they're out. Contestants fall and bang into things as they compete, but no one gets seriously hurt. Expect occasional mild jokes about things like Tinder dating and injuring genitalia, but most of it is likely to fly over the heads of younger viewers. This show is breezy, goofy fun -- perfect for taking a break from the real world.
Is It Any Good?
This wacky series offers some surprisingly fun entertainment as viewers watch teams try to work together in a silly but physically challenging obstacle course. While the objective of the game is simple, the teams create some funny moments while trying to acheive their goal. Meanwhile, Rutledge Wood's comments are also chuckle-worthy, especially during the slow-motion replays of people jumping and disappearing into the lava. If you're looking for some mindless entertainment that will inspire some laughs, Floor Is Lava will not disappoint.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
