I gave this room a 6. It was an alright room, and it looked neat. But that's about it. This was definitely a popular temple entrance choice in Season 1. Where it seemed like every other contestant was greeted by a temple guard the moment they entered the temple. I really don't have a lot to say about this room, I mean it was just yet another "hit the actuator" room after all. But the room looked cool I guess.

I have the Cave of Sighs an 8. I know it's a little high, but it's a pretty iconic room, and the climbing aspect of this and the Ledges was unique and made for some spectacular finishes, especially when it became the Ledges.

I gave the Cave of Sighs a 6 also.  I thought the color of the room was ugly and it looked so fake. And the temple guard encounters were pretty lame in this room too. I did sort of like how the contestants could choose to enter this room from the temple gates though. And the name was pretty creative too. Overall though, the Cave of Sighs served its purpose as an entrance room. By the time Season 2 came around, it was definitely time for it to go. Everything the Cave of Sighs did, the Ledges did better.

Ugly? I liked the gray color that it had. It was much better than the brown Ledges that Seasons 2 and 3 had. But I guess looks aren't everything.

The color scheme really is not that bad for this room. I don't know why though, but this room looks so fake though. It looks like the Cave was made out of plastic or something. Maybe it was because it wasn't as narrow and dark as the Ledges. I like this entrance room though and it served as a good predecessor to the Ledges. ;)

And tomorrow is the Treasure Room. I can't wait to rate it. Let's just say that I don't have kind words for this room. ;)  :mrred:

I'm pretty sure NO ONE is gonna have kind words for the Treasure Room. I might as well clock in a solid "1" average and call it a day right now. :lol:

And yeah, the "cave" itself looked so plastic and fake. But it did serve as a good entrance room, like you said. ;)

Leave it up to Brent to give it a troll vote. :lol: And even if you did that, it would STILL rank low. So.... nice try? :lol:

Hahaha!!

And actually, I changed my vote for the Cave to a 7. It was a fantastic predecessor to the Ledges, but an 8 might have been just a little high.

I gave this room a 1. This was easily the worst room in the history of the show. It's just an oversized treasure chest, that's it. And that thing was just extremely broken. It was used for a grand total of FIVE LAYOUTS, and it only worked/opened once. I guess it was an alright idea, but it was terribly executed. I just don't understand how a room THAT useless can last so long in one season. What's the point if the chest is never gonna open up? It was by far the most useless room in the history of the show. How this was green lit is beyond me. :roll: So if anyone wants to brag about Mitchell opening up the chest and being (gasp!) a strategist, be my guest. Otherwise, rage away. O_O

I HATE THE TREASURE ROOM!  :x

Sorry, this was the worst temple room featured on the show. All it was just a giant box in the middle of the room. Like the Paintbrush mentioned, it only worked one time. What is the point of the Treasure Chest then if it is never going to work? I mean it would work perfectly in runs like Hannibal and Zenobia. And don't get me started on the objective. It was just a Heart Room disguised as a treasure chest. Mitchell got extremely lucky with this room for sure. :roll: Lame objective, stupid name, lasted too long, only worked once, and an empty waste of space. That describes the Treasure Room perfectly. It will get a 1, no questions asked.:roll:

But Mitchell opened the Treasure Chest, meaning he's such a strategist. So maybe the Treasure Room is a redeemable room after all. :o

Nope, I got nothing. Buy hey, it was worth a shot right?

I loved the fact that your statement makes it sound like Heart Rooms are some sort of thing that would be commonly found in everyday life lol.

BTW I gave the room a 2 to make PPF do math.

And also because this room could have been SO MUCH MORE!! I am SO GLAD the King's Storeroom occupied this room space for most of the show.
