not *really* gone
Believe it or not, this show isn't really gone from the airwaves. Unlike what the previous person said, this show is indeed on Nick GAS and has been for a long time.

If you do not have the channel, don't worry, it should come to you.

Off the topic, Nick GAS is a channel that shows many old favorites from Nick's past. Double Dare, Super Sloppy Double Dare, etc. Not much is new.. and that's a very nice thing, mind you.

Legends of the Hidden Temple.. hmm.. it is really a good game show. Very well made. The host, Kirk Fogg, has the perfect voice for television. The only drawback is that about four teams get eliminated pretty quickly to go home with a pair of Sketchers shoes or something.

But Olmec's maze is just amazing. You know, the end when the last remaining team goes through a big maze of rooms and such. And they have to give a pendant to a temple guard if one ever comes in the precense of the room.

As corny as this sounds, it's pretty riviting sometimes. That's a lot when keeping in mind that this was aimed to children.. coming from a seventeen year old. Hah, whatever. These shows are appealing for the whole family, believe it or not.

Critic Reviews

Did You Know?


The set of the show changed slightly from season to season. In the first season, the helmets were yellow, the moat was pretty much a pool of water, the teams then for the temple games would wear shorts, and they would run the temple with yellow sweat pants on. In the second season, the moat got fog over it, along with other small touch ups, the teams wore jeans for the temple games and temple run, the temple had a gate, and the helmets were a gold-like color. In the third and final season, the gongs had a deeper sound, the steps of knowledge had a small buzzer in the step for easier buzzing. The temple itself had many updates over time, as did Kirk Fogg's entrance.


Kirk Fogg: We're gonna see you again next time for another great legend of the hidden temple!


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.

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.
