Isn't this how Wheel 2000 got off the ground with Wheel of Fortune Kids/Family Week shows,if this week is huge numbers espically the tween,teen episodes....CBS would have to be chomping at the bit to do a Nickeloden or CBS Saturday Morning version of the show and here comes Price '94 but with more of a regular Price feel to it
Well it was certainly interesting that none of the pricing games offered cars. The lineup had a good amount of variety despite no car games though. It was an enjoyable show overall, it worked better for the tweens to be on stage by themselves rather than with their parents.

The setups really couldn't have been any easier today. I think the toughest decision today was between $10,562 and $14,105 for the Costa Rica trip in Push Over, but even with that $14,105 was a little too high to be right.

I am heavily against this being a fair playing.
Although I'm not sure how the rules work for minors winning prizes on game shows, this isn't the first time CBS has done this, I remember many a week of Card Sharks where they had kids weeks, and the parents would only come on stage when it was time for the Big Money Cards.

But absolutely a fun show and a WAY overdue 6/6, even if the games were mostly gimmes for the experienced players.
Wrong age group. I know the Action Park story very well.

Perhaps it's just being kept in storage for a different day :) 
For the kids' parents. The kids have input but the parents are the final decision makers.


This was the first time that the parents weren't involved (except during the showcases), so the prizes were geared towards those actually playing (the kids).

The show got two Nominations , one for Best Game Show and one for Directing in a Game Show.
For the kids' parents. The kids have input but the parents are the final decision makers.


I know, but the point is more to why 6 games. There were no parents on the 6 games.
