Did You Know?


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 »


In his Temple Run commentary, it's clear Olmec often forgot about the diagonal passage connecting the Shrine of the Silver Monkey and the lower left-hand room. See more »


Kirk Fogg: Sir Edmond Hillary had picks and oxygen tanks to aid in his climb up Mt. Everest. Our players have these.

Crazy Credits

Most temple runs ran the full 3 minutes, and thus the closing credits scrolled by very quickly. However, if a temple run was cut short either by a player retrieving the artifact or the team getting caught by 3 temple guards, the credits would scroll by much slower to make up for "lost time."

Alternate Versions

The versions of the episodes that aired originally on Nickelodeon (from 1993-1995, the show's original run) had Dee Baker (just as himself, not in character as Olmec) doing the prize announcements. The repeats that aired years later (including those on Nick GaS) have some of these segments redone with "later released" prizes, and feature the voice of another announcer (probably Doc Holliday, the Double Dare announcer.) However the Temple Prize segments still have Dee Baker's voice. See more »

Fun game show

I used to watch this show when I was growing up. First off, I must say that it was a fun game show. Also, I don't think I've seen every episode. However, if you ask me, it was still a good show. I remember the theme song very well, too. In addition, Kirk Fogg is absolutely drop dead gorgeous, which is one of the best things about this show. Even though it's finished its run, it's fun to play along and watch. I hope the Nickelodeon Games and Sports Network keeps it on so I can keep playing along and watching. If that happens, I will be really happy. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that I'll always remember this show in my memory forever, even though I haven't seen every episode. Now, in conclusion, I hope that you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.
