Fort Boyard

Sadly Fort Boyard has never really caught on over here in North America, but it’s huge in France and parts of Europe.
Part game show, part escape room, part obstacle courses, Fort Boyard is highly entertaining no matter the language. There are plenty of videos on Youtube of the show, many have English subtitles.
