'''''Brainrush''''' was a live-action game show that premiered on Cartoon Network on June 20th, 2009, as part of the CN Real block. The series took place at the Knott's Berry Farm theme park in California where 3 contestants would ride a roller coaster and answer trivia questions to win money, the contestant with the least amount of money would drop out from the next round. The first round took place on the Boomerang roller coaster, the second on the Silver Bullet, and the last round on the Xcelerator with the final contestant having the chance to win 5,000 dollars. The series received poor reception for its low quality, and for airing on a channel previously known for only cartoons, along with the other CN Real shows, leading the show to be cancelled on July 22nd, 2009. According to a comment <ref>[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOEPsyCpTkE]</ref>made by The Othersiders Archive, the full series was available on YouTube but was later taken down.

The series took place at the Knott's Berry Farm theme park in California, where three contestants would ride a roller coaster and answer trivia questions to win money. The contestant with the least amount of money would drop out before the next round. The first, second, and third rounds took place on the Boomerang, Silver Bullet, and Xcelerator. The final contestant had the chance to win $5,000 in prize money. BrainRush and other CN Real shows received poor reception for airing on a channel known for primarily airing cartoons. The show was also criticized for its poor quality, leading it to be cancelled on July 22nd, 2009. According to a comment made by The Othersiders Archive, the full series was available on YouTube but was later taken down.[1]
