I'm not saying that every site owner should change this information, but just insinuating. :P

Anyway, most sites explain "The Throne Room" from Season 2 a little like this...

Quote
In this updated version of the Season 1 room, the throne is attached to a reversible wall. Players sit upon the Throne of the Pretender while pressing two armrest actuators, causing the throne to swing around the wall. This allows access to any opened doors.

Quote
A player entering this room would have to sit upon the Throne of the Pretender and hit two actuators mounted near the armrests to swing round a wall allowing acess to the Swamp and the center of the temple.


... embarrassingly, those are the only two descriptions of the S2 Throne Room I could find. Technically, though, as proved in "The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor", the only thing a contestant really needed to do was to hit the actuators on the armrests. If they wanted, contestants could just press the two actuators and go up. No sitting on the Throne was actually required, although it just had to be done so that contestants could go to the Swamp.

Sorry for a semi-pointless thread. ^^ Something I just suddenly noticed.

I believe there isn't an actuator there. I know a lot of people do (I think... not too sure =P) but I can't clearly see any thing sticking up from that block, and if the actuator was truly embedded so deeply into the block, I doubt that simply stepping on it could press it down completely.

Then, how did Paula get into the Swamp?

I have a feeling the crew was supposed to turn the Throne around, but couldn't in time. A bad cue perhaps? After all, it was the first day. So they just let her in.

Come to think about it, how many rooms ever had two different objectives? Only almost all the rooms in the top corner, and only two others - The Treasure Room and the Room of the Golden Idols. I don't think it would've really worked out like that in Season 2, or else if another bad cue occured, all the player would have to do is stomp on the block and ride the Throne around past the inactive double doors.
