Eddie vs. Matt vs. Shanavea
July 11

there are shows that are of the ilk, "Answer questions, win money." Then there are shows that are adrenaline paced. And then, there's Brainrush, a high-velocity combination of the two.

LEVEL 1: BOOMERANG (Height: 11 stories; Top forward speed: 48 MPH; Length: 875 ft; Loops: 6; max G's: 5)

First up today is Eddie, who wants to become a pilot when he grows up. His Quick Quiz...

7) How many legs are used in a three-legged race?

6) In what year was the US Constitution written?

So Matt & Shanavea are tied at $100. Bring on the tiebreaker! The question: What is the Boomerang's total ride time in minutes and seconds?

Shanavea: 1:30.
Matt: 2:10.

Correct... 1:45. Shanavea moves on. Matt gets $100, but he's got to go.

LEVEL 2: SILVER BULLET (3125 ft of suspended metal; top speed: 55 mph; cobra rolls; zero G rolls; two corkscrews)

Shanavea's first. She picks the blue envelope... getting HURLING HANGMAN. Watch out for three letters. Each letter is worth $50. The puzzle... ALSO worth $50.

The letters to remember.... F, L, and R. She remembers them all for $150. The puzzles...


Freak, Maul, and Burp... are all right for $150 more, $300 total.

Eddie gets THE REGURGITATOR. The story he'll try to remember is one about Barack Obama's black Portuguese waterdog named Bo from USA Today.

1) In which state was Barack Obama born?

$300 more to Eddie's total gives him $425 to Shanavea's $400. Eddie moves on to...

LEVEL 3: XCELERATOR (blast coaster; 2202 ft long; top forward speed: 82 MPH; 225 ft vertical arch; max G's: 4)

This is a categories round called "Motor Mouth" with these categories in play...

- ZAP-POW (Superheroes & comic books)
- PENALTY BOX (Sports)
- WATCH OUT! (TV/movies)
- KNOW IT ALL (general knowledge)

Eddie takes Penalty Box. Will Eddie take a $100 chili cheese dog? No he will not.

Now the big question... Remember, the more answers named, the more money earned.

The question: Name as many sports played at the Summer Olympics as you can.

- Discus ($50
- Javelin ($100)
- Baseball ($150)
- Football (acceptable for soccer, $200)
- Basketball ($250)
- Track & Field ($300)
- Pole Vault ($350)
- Archery ($400)

That's a total of $1800, giving him a total of $2225! Now will Eddie risk at least half his stash in the Bonus Question? Yes he will.

The FINAL QUESTION: The Heisman Trophy is awarded to college's best player in what sport?

"College football..." This is for $4450 and the victory ride.... or for $1112 and absolutely nothing in the term of rideage... LAUNCH IT! That's a new record on the rides, $4450.
