Oh, it was used in Seasons 2 and 3, but only to snatch away a team's hope of winning if they tried exiting through that room, which they often did.
Oh that was quite evident in Season 2's "Broken Wing Of Icarus"


I was just about to mention seeing that one tonight. I'm sitting there yelling "Move it, move it" as time runs out just before the player got out.

Yeah, if the frontrunner had just exited through the Crypt or if he hadn't taken that detour to the Observatory, he would have escaped with prolly 10 seconds to spare.

Don't you mean "The Center of the Room"?  :wink:

I agree with you, I hate most "hit the actuator" rooms.  I always feel like many of the Season 1 winners would have been eaten alive by one of the later season temples.

the only reason for the season 1 runners stupidity is because its this new show they never heard of, plus if they would have had olmec tell them that extra stuff for the temple run like seasons 2+3 instead of kirk, they would've probably payed more attention

I personally think Season one is harder because the rooms are easier.

In certain rooms, the objective is obvious: Assemble the statue and the doors open.
In other rooms, the objective is simpler, but more complicated: Open the treasure chest, or hit the actuator of the door you want to open.

If they hit the wrong actuator, or if they miss one, they look around like idiots looking for the right door. But when something complicated is done, all the doors that can open will open, signifying where to go.

Ergo, harder rooms make for an easier temple.

I loved the fact about Temple that whenever you failed at anything, it would (and usually correctly) your fault. There were very few cheap losses in Temple.

No offense to Tomb of the Headless Kings fans, but it is my least favorite room.  And WHO IS BENZIBAB?

Ya know... i hate to say it, but i'm not much of a fan of The Tomb of the Headless Kings either. It's amazing how many dimwitted kids would just pull on the SAME vine for like 10 seconds. >.<

The season 2 swamp seemed to be a mere shadow of its former season 1 glory...

Ah, my arch-enemy.  And please, wake up and smell the cho-co-la-te`!  First of all, I like the Room of the Golden Idols and Heart Room while I HATE the Tomb of the Headless Kings.  And, Jammin' Jon, Leah and Mitchell would just cream a Season 3 layout.  Don't underestimate them  (especially Jammin' Jon).

I never said ALL of the Season 1 winners.  There were a few standout contestants in there.

I would like the Golden Idols room more if they had taken out the door actuators and required contestants to complete the objective, "hugging an idol", as Kirk would say.  And say what you want about the Tomb, I won't agree with you, and I'm still not changing my avatar or profile.

They could have been much more creative in many instances, I think.

On a separate note, the season 1 temple did look pretty cool.

The Tomb of the Anchient Kings is alright...but the objective is pretty simple...pull a key out of an empty coffin. Shouldn't there have been extra stuff in there or something?
