Answer correctly, and you win sweet prizes. But get it wrong, and… No, you won’t get kicked off. But you will have to ride down on the “chair of shame.”

That’s the premise of Trivia Lift, a game show concept that is raising funds on Kickstarter to produce a pilot episode. If successful, the pilot will be pitched to large media entities to be picked up for its first season.

Once picked up, Trivia Lift will travel to resorts around the country to film the show, say the makers.

The show will use the eccentricities of the chairlift ride to its advantage. If the chairlift stops? You get a multi-part question. Stumped for an answer? You get one “180-degree shout-out” to the chairlift behind you.

Sound like fun? Would you watch? If so, head on over to the Kickstarter, where a $1 donation will get you a single trivia answer over email. Or, $10,000 in funding will get you a producer’s credit.

Awesomely, for $1,500, you get to sky dive into the June 4th Rocky Mountain party with the makers.

Trivia Lift plans to film for three days in March of 2016 at a ski resort in Summit County, Colorado. So brush up on your trivia skills and hit the slopes. Your next chairlift ride could come with an unexpected test.
