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 »

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 »

An Old Favorite
4 June 2005 | by Ginger87See all my reviews

"Legends of the Hidden Temple" has to be one of my favorite childhood game shows. It began right around the time I started first grade. I remember watching this show with my sister every time it aired. We both always wanted to be on the show.

The scenery of the game show was very well done and I loved Olmec the talking rock. He always introduced the new legend of that day. Host Kirk Fogg was also a very good host. My favorite team would have to be the Silver Snakes. That was an awesome name.

My favorite part of each episode was the fourth round: The Temple. It had a lot interesting rooms including the shrine of the silver monkey and the observatory. I give this show 10/10 stars.
