Game shows have been on our TVs since the British show Spelling Bee came on the air in 1938. Unfortunately, Spelling Bee never had a live and vibrant audience to cheer on the contestants and bring the show to life. If you are in Los Angeles and wish to be a participant in a live game show audience, then this list might help.

Did you know – Culture Trip now does bookable, small-group trips? Pick from authentic, immersive Epic Trips, compact and action-packed Mini Trips and sparkling, expansive Sailing Trips.

Wheel of Fortune

In 1983, Wheel of Fortune came to America’s homes for its first ever broadcast. As contestants figure out veiled phrases by guessing hidden letters, viewers in the audience and at home get to play along. Hosted by Pat Sajak and Vanna White, this game show can be watched live at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City. The tickets are located on their website and are available in mid-June.

The Price is Right

This summer, on the CBS television lot, Price is Right is coming back for audiences to enjoy. This is one of only a few shows where contestants get handpicked from the live studio audience. You could have the opportunity to win thousands of dollars in prizes. If you practice your grocery, travel and equipment prices, maybe you could win big this year. Tickets will be available in mid-May, and group bookings can be made too. With Drew Carey as the host and plenty of opportunities to win, how can you not have fun on this game show?


Idiotest, hosted by Ben Gleib, has teams of two attempt to solve puzzles and brainteasers based on pictures displayed on a screen in front of them. The puzzles are supposed to be very easily solvable and simple, which leads to the hilarity of the show. The answers to puzzles require a quick mind and keen skills in observation. Only one of the two teams gets to go to the final round and have the chance to win $10,000. If you want to go down to L.A. and watch this fun show, feel free to contact the number below.


If you love trivia, then you will love Jeopardy! The show was created by the impressive Merv Griffin after he and his wife discussed pitching trivia shows on a plane flight. His wife jokingly stated how giving the answers first might help executives actually enjoy trivia, and the rest is history. The show started in 1964, and at the time no one knew the success that would be for decades to come. With over 6,000 shows and plenty more to go, you too can be a part of this history making game show’s audience.

Let’s Make a Deal

Let’s Make a Deal has been on U.S. television for more than 50 years. This game show, currently hosted by Wayne Brady, is one of a few that has the audience members act as contestants. This audience has a lot of energy, and to participate you must be dressed up in a costume. This show has been known to have some of the best odds to win money as an audience member. Let’s Make a Deal gives away $80,000 in prizes per day, so it might be worth the trip. Who knows? Maybe you could win a car.

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
