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.
Did You Know?
To control the motion of Olmec's mouth, 'Dee Baker' (Olmec's voice) pulled a wire that activated its movement. Olmec's eyes, on the other hand, were voice activated and grew brighter with volume. See more
In "John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine" show, Kirk Fogg slips off his script in the beginning and only then catches himself to acknowledge that it is "Olmec's Temple". He then stutters until he finds the words "starting line?" for the first temple game in this same show. See more
The player that conquers the most countries in sixty seconds, wins!
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
