Trivia

In the Room of the Golden Idols, no player ever successfully "hugged an idol" to progress downward from the room. Only one player ever tried doing this and the door didn't open. Likewise, in the Treasure Room, the room that replaced the Golden Idols, only one player ever opened the treasure chest to progress downward. See more »

Goofs

As listed in trivia, temple runs were often filmed without an audience. In episodes where there was no audience when a temple run when is filmed, it is clearly, if a viewer was to look carefully, shown the seats are empty by the temple gate, usually in the second and third seasons. See more »

My childhood dream
14 December 2002 | by (Washington) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this show when I was young, and for years all I ever wanted was to be on it. Sadly, no such luck.

This was a fun show that kept me and a million other kids coming back every week. I'm afraid I'll have to correct a previous reviewer that this show consisted of six teams and four rounds, not four and three. To trim the fat down to four, the teams had to cross a "moat" using some cleverly named "ancient" apparatus. Once across, four teams would listen to a giant stone head tell them a "legend" (normally a story from history, occassionally mythology), and answer questions on it. The crux of the game was an object from the "legend" placed in the temple. After that, the two remaining teams would do battle against one another to enter the temple. Prizes were won if the team retrieved the object.

Whenever I flip around and see reruns of this, I smile and remember my younger days. While this show of course won't have such meaning for anyone else who today watches it, it's always fun to suspend reality and root along something that happened 5-10 years ago. This show would still work if it were produced today (the target audience wouldn't care about repetition) just as it did then. A nostalgic show for me, a nice time for virtually anyone.
