If you never participated in a game of “hot lava” as a child, consider yourself lucky that your floor didn’t suddenly turn into molten volcanic fluid. The acrobatics and technique necessary to cross a room without touching the floor made warriors of us all.
Well, our childhood nostalgia is at an all-time high in the form of The Floor is Lava challenge that is taking the internet by storm.
The rules of the challenge are simple: once someone says “the floor is lava,” people have five seconds to get off of the ground. The actual execution of the challenge is where it gets tricky, with participants uploading videos of The Floor is Lava challenge in stores, airports, parks and more.
