Is it me or are these temple layouts insanely difficult? Even with the added minute to the clock, teams are still struggling to even reach the item. Some of the rooms being big time wasters like the Queen's Armory doesn't help.
Here are the temple layouts.

Temple Layout XVI (All of Season 4)
A. The Crypt: Same from Seasons 2 and 3.
B. The Pok-ta-Pok Pit: To open any of the three central shaft doors, players need to throw a ball through a Mayan hoop.
C. The Astral Dome: Here's the first of the two rooms where the answer depends on which team goes to the temple. What players need to do is find the constellation shaped like their team animal symbol by stepping on any of the six panels on the floor that light up each team’s color. Once any panel is stepped on, tiny white lights representing the stars show the animal constellation.
D. The Chamber of the Sacred Markers: Same from Season 3.
E. The Room of the Ancient Warriors: Same from Season 3.
F. The Shrine of the Silver Monkey: You obviously can never have Legends without this room.
G. The Steamy Hollows: Here's the second of the two rooms where the answer depends on which team goes to the temple. Players need to release a steam of their team's color by uncovering one of the six vents.
H. The Jaguar's Den: Just like the Mine Shaft from Seasons 1 and 2, but there are four animatronic jaguars and players need to open a cage and get inside to ride up to the Steamy Hollows. The jaguars are located on either side of the Temple Guard door, next to the Stone Wall and beside the cage.
I. The Dark Forest: There are now blacklights, artificial plants and spooky decorations.
J. The Jester's Court: Not only are there blacklights, but there's also a colored light pattern that projects when the objective is completed.
K. The Monkey's Fruit Trove: This room has five monkey statues with five mixed up fruits (banana, coconut, mango, orange, papaya). Players need to match the fruits with the monkey statues.
L. The Ledges: Same from Seasons 2 and 3.
As the reboot is completely different from the original, I thought I could write fanfics of what it would have been like had Legends continued on Nickelodeon.

D. Black team symbol stickers have been stuck to the gong glasses.
E. When a team rings in, the step lights in their lane would light up their color rather than white.
F. When a team makes it down to the bottom step, their entire lane - down to the bottom step - would light up their color.
G. Whenever Kirk introduced the contestants before the temple games, their first and last names would be revealed. Of course, only the contestants' first names would be seen on the name stickers.
H. Rather than pink, the contestants' path and flashing dot on the HUD would be the temple team's color.

The Treasure Room / Re: Legends of the Hidden Temple BuzzFeed Quiz
« Last post by The Dark Enforcer on November 18, 2021, 07:56:31 PM »
I took the quiz, and don't want to reveal my result.

This quiz needs to be re-done so that there are "neutral" answers to some of the questions.

I don't care about what geographical region my legend comes from. All I care about is that I'd be on the show.

Also, how the fuck am I supposed to know the middle initial of someone I've never met?

Sorry Alec, but I grade this quiz an F.
Here's the second installment to my "what if" scenarios on the more deserving temple teams going to the temple.

1. Annie goes first and will start in the Room of the Three Gargoyles, where she encounters the Temple Guard and gives him her pendant.
2. She opens up the Wall climb, jumps down and heads for the Observatory.
3. Once she had successfully climbed up into the Observatory, Annie runs to the sundial, spins it and heads down into the Heart Room where the second Temple Guard takes her out.
4. Brad quickly retraces Annie's steps and enters the Treasure Room from the Heart Room.
5. He runs through the Treasure Room and opens Shrine of the Silver Monkey.
6. Brad easily figured out the simple three-piece puzzle and went up into the Pirate's Cove.
7. In the Pirate's Cove, he spins the wheel and climbs down into the Dungeon.
8. On the way down into the Dungeon, Brad sees the other half of his pendant and promptly grabs it.
9. With both halves of his pendant, Brad busts through the Stone Wall and into the Tomb of the Ancient Kings, where he finds the key in the coffin right away to open up the Swamp.
10. As he tries to make it through the Swamp, Brad was scared for a moment by the third Temple Guard and gave him both halves of his pendant.
11. He then opens up the Room of Harmonic Convergence, enters the room and promptly grabs the small pot-bellied pig statue as he sees it on the ladder.
12. With Amelia Earhart's lucky pot-bellied pig in hand, Brad makes his way back through the Wall Climb, into the Cave of Sighs and back out to Kirk and Annie!
