‘Floor is Lava’ Trailer: Netflix Game Show Takes that Kids Game to an Epic Scale


That kids game where they imagine the floor is lava and jump from furniture to furniture is the basis for this new Netflix gameshow.

The concept is kicked up to epic proportions in Floor is Lava, a gameshow from the streaming giant that finds competitors having to traverse from one side of a big room to another, while avoiding being cooked alive by the boiling, scalding-hot lava beneath them. Of course, that lava isn’t real here either – although adding real life or death stakes could make it even more exciting! There’s more than just jumping from object to object here, with surprise contraptions and things popping up to make participants fall.

It looks like mindless fun, and it could be something that annoys many a parent with kids that opt to try the game themselves after being influenced by the show. Who am I kidding? I’m in my thirties and this already has me planning a trajectory from my living room to the front door without touch the floor. Nobody: … Me: Challenge accepted!

Floor is Lava will be hitting Netflix on June 19.
