Gave the Wheel Room/Pit of Despair a 5. Was an average room, which kinda limited the choices the temple runner could make, but it gave the Pit of Despair an objective, so there's that.

I personally think the Rock Quarry was executed better than the Wheel Room was. I know it's already been said by Stone Marker, but I agree.

Plus, the Wheel Room was used too much IMO. The Rock Quarry was perfect because it was only used for 1 layout or 12 episodes. The Wheel Room was used in 26 episodes including the Belshazzar run. Plus, the room was so cramped that they couldn't use one of the Cave of Sighs doors.

I definitely prefer the Rope Swing more. Not some oversized hamster wheel or squirrel run. Or whatever it's called.

Yes, but it has been called a "squirrel run" before. ;)

I gave this room a 5. This room was always broken, and it would often take forever for a door to open, and for Medusa's eyes to light up. I also dislike this room because this objective was a tad demanding for me. I mean, thanks to Tony from Stone Head during a dunce with Medusa's head, they had to water down the objective from four snakes to two. The latter amount of snakes should've been done from the beginning, because four snakes is asking way too much. Though Tony shouldn't have been spending a minute completing the objective. :roll: I just never liked this room. I'm glad they got rid of it by S2L5 and replaced it with the Room of the Mandarin Hand.

I gave Medusa's Lair a 6.

It was a great concept, but it was often fickle and teams would struggle with completing the objective, and not in a good way.

This was definitely an upgrade over the previous two occupants of this space however, and it gets a small boost from me because Lucky Pillow.

I am torn between Medusa's Lair. It was a good concept, but the room was too buggy and time consuming. In fact, the room was so time consuming that the producers had to dumb down on the room objective! 4 snakes was a bitch, and you can't entirely blame Tony from Stone Head for spending a lot of time in there (although a full minute was excessive). And even with 2 snakes, the room was still buggy and had production errors. Runs like Missing Eye and Silk Sash come to mind. I do like the objective though and it was a huge step up from the lame Heart Room and Fallen Columns. And the objective was a pretty good and unique too. I gave Medusa's Lair a 6 overall too.

Although I like the Chamber and Mandarin Hand better. ;)

Yeah, I don't blame Tony entirely for his chokejob in that room. Because like you said, four snakes is a bitch, and two snakes was much easier. But I also prefer the Room of the Mandarin Hand and Chamber over this room. ;)

It just sucks that the room objective seemed to never work properly. Players would clearly have the snakes jammed into the head and nothing would happen. Then they would have to go fiddle with the snakes until the lights went off and the doors opened.
