Former contestants of “Legends Of The Hidden Temple” on Reddit
There is little chance in this world to contemplate a real treasure. The ’90s kids who watched the iconic TV show Legends of the Hidden Temple know this truth well.
In preparation for the reboot of the new series, we took a deep dive into these stories to remind ourselves of what to expect:
“I was small and way too young – I was that idiot who didn’t know what to do.”
“I thought the moat challenge was fun, and we got it right first. The older kids episode that was filmed right before us (and had the same moat challenge) was so terrible that everyone was so drenched they had to change clothes and go through the whole sequence again. “
“I was in the King Henry VIII episode (Season 1, EP 16). I made it to the semi-finals (I couldn’t lead the temple). I don’t remember how deep the moat was at all . “
“We never saw the host off camera. He never came to our waiting room to introduce himself and never spoke to us on set unless they were filming. As for the latency, there was A TON They film 4 episodes at a time.
“According to the show, I won a game called ‘Magical Maze’. What happened to my door was Moon Shoes. I don’t know if there was any confusion or if they were. have just randomized certain products as “price” for marketing purposes. “
“We were due to arrive at 6:30 am. I was released from the shoot in the early afternoon. They fed us breakfast and lunch. So yeah, for about 7 minutes of fame it took about 8 hours. . “
“At least a third of the contestants never saw the show before they were candidates because each season was fully filmed before it aired, and there were 3 seasons of 40 episodes each.”
“My friend was a competitor on this show. He said the temple guards were arrogant jerks.” – u / bmoviescreamqueen

“I was working for a construction company that would be hired by Nickelodeon to build / dismantle some of their televisions. Legends of the Hidden Temple was actually one of the sets we did. “
“The producers coordinated themselves very well to decide who was going to be on which team. I was mainly working on the technical aspects of the production. I got to know these people but I didn’t work much with the children.” – u / LegendsGutsArcade
“One of my challenges was to tie everything together, the computers, the midi audio triggers and the video graphics.”
“I was at the recording of Captions for the first season, so we didn’t know what to expect. “
