* UndesirablePrize: The grand prize was often a trip to Universal Studios in Orlando...where the show was taped. Basically, this meant that if you weren't impressed with the park the first time, you "won" the opportunity to see the same things all over again. [[InvertedTrope On the other hand]], if you enjoyed the park, you got a return trip on Nick's dime.

The most notable part was the "Video Challenge" squares, where one of the teammates got up to a wall of "arcade machines" (which usually had [[UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem NES]], [[UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem SNES]], UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis, and UsefulNotes/NeoGeo games) and participated in a timed challenge on that game. Viewers could be treated to kids failing hard at collecting rings in ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog1 Sonic the Hedgehog]]'', or the poor sap who chose ''[[VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts]]''.
