There was definitely an alternate path in Shaka Zulu. My theory was that this run was suppose to be like Leonardo Da Vinci and Stone Marker where Bobby would've been forced to enter the top floor. In Shaka Zulu though, the Holes of Python was NOT a dead end. If you watch the temple rundown, you can tell the Treasure Room chest was already open meaning that the Red Jaguars would've been forced up. So the correct path to the artifact was most likely through the top floor like in Trojan Horseshoe and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine. No way was Bobby's path the intended path. :?

Yeah, they would never make a layout THAT easy. It figures, the one time (besides Geronimo) the Treasure Chest is supposed to open, it's not used at all. It would've made for an interesting layout if Bobby and Brittany were to be forced up to the Treasure Room.

If only the production error hadn't happened. That passage should have been utilized more. Anywho, there had to have been an alternate path in Butch Cassidy. I'm guessing the Observatory would have been open and held a guard. Any thoughts?

As to the layout of the Mask of Shaka Zulu, I drew 2 possible routes:




Those are the two routes that I could think of.

The Red route seems more likely, but the orange one could also be likely.

I wouldn't know of any other possible routes in Silver Horseshoe of Butch Cassidy.

One of the guards could've been in the Observatory. I don't know about an alternative route though.

It would have been more of detour than a route, but I felt like mentioning anyways.

The red seems like it would be the route, but who knows. There was also a theory that there was a route that went along the top of the temple and converged with the routes(s) you have on your image in the Treasure Room.

Plus, there could've been a temple guard in the Crypt as well. And Paula could've very well have entered both the Crypt and the Observatory. So an alternative route could still be legit. But, still an interesting observation nonetheless.

Judging from runs like Cobra Staff, Trojan Horseshoe, and Lost Gold Mine, I don't think the Shaka Zulu team would've been granted access to the Shrine-Tomb of the Ancient Kings. So I think they would've been forced to take the Well Bucket elevator. Same for Stone Marker and Leonardo Da Vinci if those teams made it far.

I also think that Bobby could've started in the Gargoyles and taken the Trouble Bridge too. The Cobra Staff run allowed for this freedom, and the Da Vinci and Stone Marker run would've allowed the same thing mostly likely if the players tried all three tongues in those runs. So basically, here are the two paths I see in Shaka Zulu:

1.) Gargoyles -> Troubled Bridge -> Observatory -> Treasure Room -> Shrine -> Torch Room -> Well -> Ancient Kings
2.) Cave if Sighs -> Wheel Room -> Throne Room -> Holes of Python -> Treasure Room -> Shrine -> Torch Room -> Well

I'm personally more interested in Silver Horseshoe's route. Where Paula could've entered more rooms, and then she wouldn't be as "amazing" as she is considered to be. Whether it would just be classified as a "detour" or not.

This one is hard to figure out like Shaka Zulu. I am interested whether Paula would've been allowed to enter any of the other top floor rooms. During her temple run, she did try the King's Storeroom door from the Heart Room but it did not open. What if Paula entered the Observatory then? Would she be allowed to enter the King's Storeroom from there? Maybe there would've been two routes to the artifact in that case. I think the path Paula took is the intended path the producers wanted her to take. If she started in the Observatory, then the run would be like Golden Stallion and Dead Man's Hand where only the bottom shaft door opens up to the left rooms of the temple. I think the guards were in these rooms:

-- Crypt (One of the guards had to be avoidable since she had one Pendant, so it had to be there.)
-- Observatory (Could be a "direct path" guard, like in Golden Stallion)
-- Dark Forest (encountered)

I'm convinced that there was a guard in the Crypt and Obserbatory. It would have mimicked the Babe the Ox layout. And someon said that the Kings Storeroom opening in the Belle Boyd run counted as an alternate path, so I guess the Observatory in Butch Cassidy would as well. This is pretty irrelevant, but the Throne/Pit door was open in this run as well.

I can see 4 possible routes in Silver Horseshoe of Butch Cassidy (see image above).

Of course, we all know she won. But an alternative layout would've obviously have said otherwise.

Do you guys think that there was an alternate with the Troubled Bridge in the Cosa Rara run? I am positive that the Troubled Bridge opened from the Observatory during that run. Some people don't seem to think so though. But I don't think the producers would've forced the team up the central shaft with that tough of a layout. I think Justin could've started in the Crypt for a Pecos Bill type layout.
