Legends of the Hidden Temple Reboot on the Way

Let’s take it back 90’s. One of the biggest game shows on Television is coming back, and you have a chance to be a part of the reboot.

Legends of the Hidden Temple, the popular action-adventure game show from Nickelodeon aired from 1993 to 1995, is set for a reboot.

The show hosted many physical and mental challenges to retrieve artifacts in a Mayan-themed set.

The show sets six teams of two contestants that began a three-round competition to determine which team earned the right to enter the temple.

Teams were identified via animal on t-shirts: Red Jaguars, Blue Barracudas, Green Monkeys, Orange Iguanas, Purple Parrots, and Silver Snakes.

Each episode consisted of three rounds. The Moat: Racing across a narrow swimming pool. The Steps of Knowledge: answering multiple-choice questions.

The Temple Games: Top two teams from round two (steps of knowledge) battle it out in a physical challenge to see who gets to enter the final round, The Temple Run.

Throughout all rounds, each team has a chance to earn pendants of life. These pendants are crucial for the final round, “The Temple Run,” which will protect them against the dreaded temple guards.

In the end, only one team was allowed to enter the temple, retrieve an artifact, and return to the temple entrance within the three-minute time limit.

Teams needed to be careful when entering the temple as some temple rooms remained locked or guarded by dreaded temple guards.

If a team member capture by one of the temple guards, they can use their pendants of life to continue to complete the mission; however, if caught without a pendant, the second teammate will enter and attempt to complete the mission.
