I'm really hoping there were wrap videos for Seasons 2 and 3 now, because this was pretty fun to watch.

Just.... wow. I've never seen anything like that before. What a rare gem. And I definitely hope they come up with a Season 2 and 3 wrap video. I also like how they showed footage of James from Ponce de Leon making funny faces and the Silk Ladder victory. :lol:

Thanks for sharing! :D

That was an awesome find, TSM! It is pretty awesome to see what the set and producers looked like when they are not in camera frame. It looked like they had a lot of fun too. I liked how the audience was having some fun with the music with the producers. There was a lot going on behind the cameras too that I noticed like a female spotter near the moat with a microphone and someone blowing candles out on a cake near the Steps of Knowledge.

I also noticed some episodes too.
- James from "Lost Fountain of Youth" making a face at the camera.
- Jeremy and Erika's temple victory in " :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: "
- "The Trojan Horseshoe" legend
- The "Anne Bonny" legend

There were also some contestants being dragged around the set. I wonder if we can tell what episode they were from?

Sorry to bump an old thread, but is the video private for anyone else? Anyone know a different way to view it?

Hmm, it says private for me too. It wasn't like that when this was first posted. I wonder why the uploader decided to make it private. =/

Too bad, that video was actually interesting. I knew I should've saved it or try to record it. I was hoping a Season 2 or 3 one would've been released. :o

Thank you so much Bertie! That was really neat :P I liked when the kids were being dragged/pulled through the hallways  :lol:  Now, I wonder if theres a season 2 and/or 3 one :o

I'd love it if there was a Season 2 or 3 Wrap video. Those would be very interesting to see. :o

I still find it humorous that all that stuff was going on while they were recording each episode. It looked like the producers were really cool people to be around with. And I like all those crazy shots of the contestants we don't see like James in Ponce De Leon and the Silk Ladder kids. I wish I was a member of the live audience for at least one of the production days. :P
Title: Re: Season 1 Wrap Video
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 17, 2014, 11:09:51 PM
Yeah, same here. It would be interesting to see how everything went down behind the scenes. It would be especially interesting to see how the first episode ever recorded went down. I'm sure it had to be hectic on the first ever day. :o

And I really need to download that link, and save it. Before it's too late. :lol:

Most people who work in TV are really fun, free spirited types of people.

I never got to be in the audience for Legends but I did get to see Double Dare 2000, which was like a dream come true because I had always wanted to see a taping of the original version. Nick Studios was an amazing environment, and it was every bit as fun and enjoyable as you would imagine.

Absolutely! It was one of the best days of my life! I mean, I don't know how much you wanna hear about, but basically, as soon as I saw the first teaser commercial air for the DD2K, I flipped out and begged my family to make a trip to Orlando to attend a taping.

I somehow managed to find a taping schedule, I don't remember how. But anyways, we got down there and went into the park at opening. There was a representative from Nick standing in the main thoroughfare providing complimentary tickets to the tapings. I believe they taped four shows per day. Our taping was scheduled for around 3:00.

We hung out at the Studios for most of the day impatiently waiting. Well, I was impatient anyway. We took the Studio tour and got a great overhead look at the new set, which blew my mind. I also recall seeing the original DD podium Marc Summers used on display along the tour route.

When the time came for our taping, we formed up in a line and entered Soundstage 18 through a door on the front part of the building. Let me tell you, it was like walking into a dream.

We lucked out as we would be present for the filming of two obstacle course runs, both for the red team. We were shuffled into seats left of center, facing the stage. I kept looking around, taking it all in. It was honestly pretty overwhelming. There were some crew members who talked to the audience to keep us entertained while they set up for the obstacle course, but for me, that set-up process was far more entertaining than anything they could have been doing.

They put the gak and other finishing touches on all the obstacles. The day of our taping they were using The Wringer/Kid Squisher, Down The Hatch/Big Mouth, Dump Truck, Drum Roll, The Blimp, Pick It, Blue Plate Special, and Big Scoop.

While the crew finished setting up, I noticed Jason Harris appear on the set. At this point, not too many people knew who he was yet, but being the fanatic I was, I knew exactly who he was. I actually had the nerve to call out to him and ask for a picture, to which he happily obliged. That was so against the rules (NO PHOTOGRAPHY OF ANY KIND!!!) But Jason didn't seem to care. He was honestly probably just stoked that someone knew who he was. I thanked him for the picture and also thanked him for hosting the new version of the show and let him know how excited I was. A few moments later one of the hype people introduced Jason to the audience and then they brought out the red team.

They explained to the audience what show was and the obstacle course was, while some crew people took the family around the course and explained each obstacle in detail. They also had preselected a kid to demonstrate the Big Mouth obstacle. Once everyone was all set, they started filming the obstacle course run down. Those crowd hype people actually encourage and lead the audience with the cheering. They practice it with you a few times prior to filming. If you watch carefully on Legends, when there is a camera person in the Crypt, look through the doorway, and you can often see a crew member flailing their arms wildly to get the crowd to make some noise.

Once that was all set, the red team was cut loose for the messiest minute in television. We were seated right by the Dump Truck. The family managed to win six of the eight prizes. Interestingly, after they were done and escorted off stage, Tiffany the announcer actually redid her prize rundown to a silent crowd. Apparently there was a foul up during the first rundown, because this didn't happen during our second taping. Although I could see them filming it this way regardless.

After that, we were shifted over a section and a new audience was also brought in. Now we were stationed in front of The Blimp. The second red team family was brought in, and the whole process started again while the crew retouched the obstacles, and also rearranged a few things. They rotated the direction of the Kid Squisher and Blue Plate and Down The Hatch switched places. They also adjusted the order of the obstacles slightly. This way each obstacle course run is slightly different, even on the same filming day.

Then the entire process started again. This time they also picked a kid to demonstrate The Wringer. Once again, the family managed to win six of the eight prizes. I got slime on me from The Blimp. I believe it was the pudding variety. I know this is gross, but I didn't wash my hoodie for like three months after that, lol.

After the second run was over, our experience drew to a close and we were taken out of the studio through a second door that led us back out to by the Slime Geyser.

If you guys are super curious I'll try and find my episodes on YouTube.

It was truly an incredible experience. I will never ever ever forget it. It inspired my cousins and I to build our own Double Dare set. We threw a DD party for one of their birthdays. I was the host. It was so awesome!

Side note: there were various props from some older Nick shows laying around unused portions of the Studios. Presumably either incase they decided to revive the show, or they were just too cool to get rid of. One of them was actually Olmec! And in fact, for a while during Nick GAS's run, Dave Aizer (another guy I was able to meet later that year) and Vivian Collins filmed some Nick GAS segments with Olmec just hanging out in the background. (All the live action GAS stuff was also filmed at Nick Studios).

This concludes my long winded memoir from my Double Dare 2000 taping experience. Sorry if this was a lot of text! It's impossible for me to recall this story without lots of detail. If there is anything else you want to know that I may have left out, let me know!

Fascinating. :o All I remember about my stay at Universal Studios when I was 9 was some sort of game going on in one of the studios. It's kind of hard to explain, but a bunch of people were doing these Double Dare esque activities. And they used a Legends clock in the background too. Too bad Legends was long cancelled by this point though. :lol: And I would love to see your video of it on YouTube.

What you saw was the Nick Game Lab. It was the closing portion of the Studio Tour. It took place in a small "studio" and kids would get picked out of the crowd to participate in various challenges. This was initially used as a way to actually test out new physical challenges and other games to be used on actual Nick game shows.

I'll look for them. I don't remember the names of the teams, but I'll just have to look through the obstacle course runs, which I don't mind doing.

So that's what it was. I was only 9 at the time when I saw that at Universal Studios, and I vaguely remember it. I only remember most of the experience through home videos. I was never picked to be part of the crowd, but it was still a pretty neat thing to witness. :mrchameleon:

It definitely was!!

Here, I'm in the crowd of this episode behind the Dump Truck. I would have been freshly 15 at this point. Blue zip up hoodie sitting in the row by the kid who gets to do Big Mouth. Note his generic red shirt.
