Six teams compete through a series of physical and mental challenges as it narrows down to only one team given the privilege to enter a mysterious Mayan temple in order to retrieve an artifact from a well known figure in a limited amount of time.

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

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."

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
