Are you ready to face your fears? There are some
important things to know about Fear Factor Live at
Universal Studios Tours before you sign up. First,
this is for real. This is not a cheesy attempt to
replicate Fear Factor and please a studio audience.
The stunts are very real, and they are performed by
audience members just like you. There is no
If you still want to participate, simply visit the casting
office, which is located near the Terminator ride in
the theme park. You must meet certain physical
requirements to ensure that you can handle what
is about to be asked of you. You must also
complete and sign a liability form, holding Universal
Studios and Fear Factor harmless of any injuries or
damages you may incur.
Before the show begins, some audience members
who were not selected to participate are called on
stage to face smaller challenges, such as eating
various bugs. The winner of the pre-show contest
wins great prizes, such as an annual pass to the
theme park. This is followed by an audience warm
up with the hosts of the show.
The show consists of six contestants that were
chosen from the casting office ? if your lucky, you
might be one of these! They are dressed just as the
contestants on the original Fear Factor dress ? in
tight uniforms. A series of challenges, much like the
challenges on Fear Factor are presented to the
contestants. Falls from high places, skill tests, and
of course, the famous gross-out challenge. During
the show, a random audience member is picked
for yet another challenge ? such as sticking their
head in a tank full of scorpions.
If you?ve ever watched Fear Factor, and told all of
your friends that you could handle everything that
was thrown at those contestants, be careful. Here is
your big chance to prove yourself ? or your friends?
chance to prove you wrong! Win or lose, Fear
Factor Live at Universal Studios Tours could be the
highlight of your visit! If you want to be on the show,
visit the casting office as soon as you get to the
park to make sure that you meet the physical
requirements ? and if you don?t meet the
requirements, ask about being in the audience.
