As the title suggests, unlike ''Double Dare'' and ''Finders Keepers'' which had more physical elements, ''Think Fast'' had less to do with physical activities and more to do with brain teasers and other memory challenges, like dumping colored slime on your teammate in a certain pattern a la Simon.

* BonusRound: In the Locker Room, the contestants had to match the contents of 15 large lockers, each of which contained either a silly character, a prop or series of props, or a "booby trap" of some sort (the Carrington episodes had props, puppets[[note]]specifically, a puppet of RonaldReagan giving a speech and flopping around[[/note]], and some people dressed as crazy characters while the Lackey episodes had people dressed as crazy characters and props). One at a time, a locker would open, and then the player had to find its match by hitting the buttons in front of the lockers to open them. Each successful match won money or a prize. All but one of the lockers contained something that matched with another locker's contents; the remaining locker contained a gimmick meant to throw off or hinder the players' progress:
