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

One episode in the second season consisted of a different layout of the temple throughout three-quarters of the show. When the temple run is shown, the layout of the temple completely changed. Not only that, the artifact was spotted in the wrong location before the temple run began. Originally, the artifact was not seen when Olmec announced where it is. See more »

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."

Best Show Ever Made
1 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

Some things never lose their appeal. Scared, prize hungry 12 year olds, a giant talking Mayan statue, some goofy guy swinging from a rope, that silver monkey that nobody seemed to be able to put together, and some freaky temple guards all came together to make the perfect action game show on Nickelodeon. "Legends of the Hidden Temple" is an excellent game show that was featured on Nickelodeon from 1993 to 1995. Although hosted by Kirk Fogg, Legends is most famous for a much different host: a talking stone head by the name of Olmec. This television show will always be remembered for its creativity and its suspenseful action.

No matter what team won, you could have always done better then them.

oh and by the way there is a site selling the team shirts which is amazing.
