Join Bert Kreischer, the everyman, as he travels around the country in search of can’t-miss thrill rides and local activities, from the crazy to the insane to the downright dangerous. He’s a big kid on a mission to uncover fun and adventure wherever he goes.

Along the way, he’ll make friends with locals from all parts of the country. They’ll show him what they do for fun, and Bert will remind them that it’s OK to be a kid again. Unlocking the power of an adventure in your own town and the inner child in all of us, Bert will entertain and enlighten viewers to the fun that could be just around the corner.

Whether he’s riding Virginia’s Griffon, the tallest and fastest coaster in the world, plunging 40 feet down Hawaii’s Shaka waterslide, or competing in Maine’s North American Wife Carrying Championship, Bert stops at nothing to celebrate the unique traditions that take place in towns across the nation.
