To be victorious, you must retrieve a lost treasure and successfully escape the Temple as a team or individually. With your fellow contestants, you must decide what lost treasure you seek. In round 1, the first three teams to cross the treacherous Moat twice will advance to the next round. One player from the eliminated team becomes Olmec and another eliminated player becomes the host, Kirk Fogg.
Round 2 takes you to the Steps of Knowledge, where you will undergo various mental challenges. Be one of the first two teams to answer two questions correctly. Listen carefully as the Olmec reads the legend aloud for clues, as correct answers are the only way to earn a chance to enter Olmec’s Temple.
Your strength and speed will be tested in round 3: The Temple Games. Compete to earn Pendants of Life in three rigorous challenges, including the Golden Cup of Belshazzar, Galileo’s Cannonball, and The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass. If you make it through all three and earn the most Pendants of Life, you may finally enter the Temple!
Alas, round 4: The Temple Run! You must race through the Temple, retrieve the lost treasure, and escape. Your time begins as soon as Olmec lowers his gate. Watch out for the Temple Guards and be mindful of the clock, for you only have three minutes to complete your mission – or you will be trapped in the Temple forever. Are you brave enough to uncover the legends of the Hidden Temple?
