The camera makes its way through lush greenery, and the palms move away as ambient animal noises are heard. Portions of a temple are shown, and suddenly the jungle ends, and we see Olmec?s face light up and shout, ?LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE!?

The show?s title card?a pendant of life?crashes together on the screen, and the camera shifts to focus on the temple and its rooms. ?With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is now!?

The pendant splinters and Kirk is seen crawling out of the Jungle Crevice to run right into the center of the stage and up the Steps of Knowledge as he begins his narration.

?Thank you, thank you!? says Kirk. ?It's nice to see you! Thank you, Olmec. Welcome to the Legends of the Hidden Temple. The rooms are filled with lost treasures that are protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legend behind each of the treasures in his temple. Which one are we going to hear about today??

Olmec replies, ?The Legend of The Cracked Coin of Emperor Alexius!?

?Ooh, the Cracked Coin of the Emperor Alexius!? says Kirk. ?Well, one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Cracked Coin?will it be The Red Jaguars??

At this point, the camera focuses on each team as they are introduced.

?The Blue Barracudas??
?The Green Monkeys??
?The Orange Iguanas??
?The Purple Parrots??
?Or the Silver Snakes??

?They?re going to have to pass some tough mental and physical tests,? continues Kirk, ?and in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec?s temple, but first they?ll have to cross the moat, and Olmec?s gonna tell us how they have to do it today.?

Olmec instructs:
?Before you, an ancient raft lies in the water, and above it, a path of vines. When Kirk gives the signal, climb into the raft together and grab the vine in front of you. Then pull yourself to the next vine and do it again to cross the Moat. When you reach the other side, both of you, climb out of the raft, and hit? the gong!?

Kirk hits the Silver Snakes? gong to demonstrate, which?in turn?lights up a bright silver.

?The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round,? finishes Olmec. ?Hey, teams!? calls Kirk. ?Are you ready??

The teams excitedly reply, ?Yeeaahhhh!?

Kirk then asks, ?Olmec, are you ready??

?Ooh, yeah!? replies Olmec.

?Teams!? shouts Kirk. ?On your marks, get set? GO!?

?And there they go, into the rafts,? says Kirk, beginning his commentary as the six teams climb into their circular rafts. ?They have to grab the vines above them and? pull themselves across that Moat?? All six teams seem fairly even, and the screen switches to a wide shot of the Moat?the Blue Barracudas are just ahead of the other teams. Behind them are the Orange Iguanas and Silver Snakes, while the other teams are briefly blocked in the close race. ?Oh, the Red Jaguars are falling behind?? Kirk comments as the Blue Barracudas pull their way past the fifth vine and their raft hits the side of the Moat. ?Looks like we?re gonna have our first team?? Kirk pauses as the Blue Barracudas climb out of their raft and slam down on their gong. ??and it?s the Blue Barracudas!? yells Kirk, but only seconds before two more gongs are heard. ?Orange and Silver are in! We?re still looking for one more team?? We change to a camera focused on the green and orange gongs, to show the Green Monkeys run over to hit their gong. ??and we?ve got our four teams!? announces Kirk. ?Stop right there!?

The next shot shows Kirk standing next to the Silver Snakes by their gong. ?Going onto the Silver?the Steps of Knowledge,? he declares, ?are the Silver Snakes?and the Orange Iguanas?and the Green Monkeys?and the Blue Barracudas.?

?The Purple Parrots and the Red Jaguars gave it a great effort too, though,? he says. ?We?re not sending them away empty-handed. We?ve got a great gift for them, and here?s what it is.?

Dee reads the prize:
?It?s It?s a $50 savings bond from Nestl?! Hey kids, here?s an easy act to follow?turn an ordinary glass of milk into a thick, chocolatey treat. Nestl? Quik?it?s magic in the making!

Wild Jungle EP: The Cracked Coin of Emperor Alexius
« Reply #1 on: August 20, 2010, 03:36:32 AM »
The screen transitions to a shot of the four teams atop the Steps of Knowledge. ?As we continue our quest,? says Kirk, ?it?s now time for Olmec to tell us about The Cracked Coin of Emperor Alexius. But teams?pay attention, because your knowledge of the legend can bring you a step closer to Olmec?s temple.?

Olmec narrates the legend:
?One of the greatest Byzantine emperors was Emperor Alexius I Comnenus. He ruled the Byzantine Empire for 37 years, but rose to the throne at the completely wrong time. Byzantium was being torn apart in a war with the Normans. In 1092, Byzantium was running out of money because they had spent it all on wars, and the people were not happy with Alexius.

??What kind of place are you running?? one of them demanded. ?You?re going to run us right into the ground!?

??We don?t even have the money to continue!? yelled another.

??Yes, we do,? lied Alexius, and then he sighed. ?No, we don?t.? He picked up a coin and struck it, and it cracked and broke, making the crowd laugh.

??You pathetic loser!? a woman laughed. Alexius struck another coin, this time officially debasing the Byzantine currency. He eventually reinstated it, but he remained unpopular for the rest of his life. But the broken coin disappeared and it made its way to the Temple. Your quest is to find The Cracked Coin of the Emperor Alexius and bring it back here.?

?Thanks, Olmec,? says Kirk after a short pause, ?so tell us?where is the Cracked Coin??

?The Cracked Coin of the Emperor Alexius can be found? in the Forest of a Thousand Dragons.? reveals Olmec. The camera moves across the Temple?s bottom floor, stopping in front of the Forest, and then fades to a close-up of the coin propped up on a pile of stones.

?All right then,? says Kirk in response. ?Teams?you are now standing on the Steps of Knowledge. In a minute, Olmec?s gonna ask you a question. If you think you know the answer, stomp down on the ancient marking in front of you. If you?re right, you?ll move down to the next level, but if you?re wrong or run out of time, I?m gonna have to give the other teams a chance to answer. The first two teams that make it to the bottom level?? Kirk runs down the steps, then walks out of view ??will be one step closer to Olmec?s temple. Olmec, we?re now ready for your first question??

Olmec asks: ?Was Emperor Alexius the emperor of?Persia, Byzantium, or??

The Orange Iguanas stomp down: ?The? Byzantine???

?Close enough,? replies Olmec. ?Step down?step on down, Orange Iguanas,? Kirk says, motioning for them to move down to the second step. ?Next question??

Olmec asks: ?Did Alexius rule for?20 years, 37 years, or a hundred years??

The Silver Snakes ring in: ?37 years??

?That is correct!? declares Olmec. ?Step down, Silver Snakes,? commentates Kirk. ?Next question??

Olmec asks: ?When Alexius became emperor, was Byzantium at war with?the Norwegians, the Normans, or the Mayans??

The Orange Iguanas buzz in: ?The Normans??

?That is correct,? announces Olmec. ?And just like that, the Orange Iguanas are just one step away from Olmec?s Temple?uh, the Temple Games!? says Kirk. ?Olmec, next question.?

Olmec asks: ?In 1092, Byzantium was running out of money. Was this because they had spent it all on: buildings, wars, or on the empress? clothes??

The Orange Iguanas ring in again: ?Wars??

?That is correct!? booms Olmec. ?The Orange Iguanas are going on to the Temple Games!? announces Kirk. ?Woah, just like that, we?ve got our first team! We?re still looking for one more team, though. Who?s it gonna be?the Blue Barracudas, the Green Monkeys, or the Silver Snakes? Next question.?

Olmec asks: ?Is Byzantium located in present-day?Russia, Turkey, or China??

The Silver Snakes stomp down: ?Turkey.?

?That is correct!? answers Olmec. ?And now the Silver Snakes are just a step away from the Temple Games,? remarks Kirk. ?Still plenty of questions, though. Next question??

Olmec asks: ?To debase the currency, did Alexius?eat a coin, strike a coin, or??

The Blue Barracudas hit the marking: ?Strike the coin??

?That is correct,? says Olmec. ?All right, step down, Blue Barracudas,? urges Kirk. ?Now they?re on the board as well. Next question??

Olmec asks: ?Is the area that Byzantium was located in now known as: Asia Major, Asia Minor, or Southeast??

The Silver Snakes interrupt: ?Asia Minor??

?That is correct!? shouts Olmec. ?These two teams are going on to the Temple Games!? shouts Kirk as he runs over to the teams on the bottom step. ?They are the Orange Iguanas? and the Blue?Silver Snakes! The Blue Barracudas and the Green Monkeys gave it a great effort as well?they just didn?t have many chances to answer. We?re not sending them away empty-handed?we?ve got a great gift for them, and here?s what it is!?

Dee reads the prize:
?It?s a Pulse Kick N? Go electric scooter! The Kick N? Go uses a unique self-propulsion pedal to keep your balance while riding. From Pulse!?

The screen wipes to reveal Kirk with his hands on the two remaining teams? shoulders. ?These two teams are gonna be competing for the rights to enter Olmec?s temple,? he says, ?and they?re gonna do it?right after this!? The screen fades to an up-high crane camera pointed towards the Moat and the audience. It zooms in on a section of the audience as the titlecard appears onscreen, and we fade to commercial.

The pendant splits, the camera zooms out from two small Tiki idols propped up on the ledge separating the Moat?s deck and the Temple Games floor, and then we fade to Kirk and the two teams.

?Welcome back to Legends,? says Kirk, standing in front of The Vine Drop with the two remaining teams. ?Now the glory goes to the fastest and the strongest?so let?s hear it for Will and Monica of the Orange Iguanas? and Shaun and Carla of the Silver Snakes!? The audience applauds briefly for the four players.

?All right, you guys ready to play?? Kirk asks. The players cheer and yell in response. ?Okay, then, why don?t you guys head over there for the first Temple Game, and the girls head over there for the second game?? Kirk sends the players off in different directions before continuing.

?In the temple games, teams are competing to win pendants of life?? Kirk grabs a pendant out of his pouch and holds it up to the camera. ?The winning team will need those pendants to protect themselves from the dreaded Temple Guards, as they make their way through the temple. There are three Temple Games, and Olmec will now tell us about Temple Game #1. Olmec??

Olmec explains:
?No ruler could rule without a crown, and in this game, you?ll be collecting some of Emperor Alexius? crowns. When Kirk gives the signal, make your way across the water by stepping on the stones?but be careful, because if you fall in, you must go back and begin again. When you reach the other side, grab a crown, bring it back to your basket, and do it again. The team with the most crowns in their basket at the end of 60 seconds wins.?

?Emperor Alexius sure wasn?t organized,? comments Kirk. ?Let?s put 60 seconds on the clock!?

The clock slams down into the corner of the screen. ?On your marks, get set? GO!? The boys immediately step onto the first block; Will steps on more cautiously, while Shaun narrowly avoids falling in as he tries to pass it quickly. ?It?s a game of balance,? explains Kirk, right as Shaun falls into the water. ?? and it looks like the Silver Snakes need to work on that!? [0:53] By this point, Will moves onto the third block, and then the fourth with 45 seconds remaining, stepping on the fifth block before making it onto the deck in three large strides. ?Nice move by the Orange Iguanas,? comments Kirk as Will grabs a crown and begins to run back to the start along the side of the pool. Meanwhile, Shaun passes the third stepping stone, but falls into the water after losing his balance again. ?Oh, Silver Snakes fell in again!? commentates Kirk. ?They?re gonna have to really catch up now?? [0:37] Will falls into the water while stepping onto the second stone, and is sent back. ?Silver Snakes have a chance now?can they catch?? Kirk is cut off by Shaun falling into the water yet again. With 21 seconds remaining, Will scores a second crown, and Shaun finally grabs his first crown seven seconds later. ?The Silver Snakes are finally on the board!? Kirk announces, as the final seconds approach. With nine seconds on the clock, Will falls into the water, as Shaun finally places a crown in his bucket, but TIME IS UP before any more progress is made!

?All right, it?s over!? shouts Kirk as the clock hits zero and explodes over the screen. ?Let?s count up the scores!? Two spotters bring the buckets?each marked by a colored tag?down to the main stage and Kirk gets down on one knee to count up, tossing the crowns out of the buckets as he does.

?Let?s see,? says Kirk, peering into the orange-marked bucket first. ?The Orange Iguanas got one? two crowns, and the Silver Snakes? only got one crown, so that means the Orange Iguanas get the half pendant of life!? The audience cheers briefly as the boys dry off and Kirk gives them both high-fives.

?Okay,? continues Kirk. ?The Silver Snakes can catch up in the next game, though. It?s worth a half-a-pendant?Olmec, tell us about Temple Game #2.?

Olmec narrates:
?Emperor Alexius rose to the throne while the Byzantine Empire was at war with the Normans. Today, your team will be at war with the other team?although this one will only last one minute. When Kirk gives the signal, run out and collect cannonballs to load your cannon, and then fire at your opponent. If they are hit, the ball will stick to their clothes, and you will score a point. The player with the least cannonballs stuck to their shirt at the end of 60 seconds? wins.?

?They?re gonna battle it out? all for a half-pendant,? remarks Kirk. ?Let?s get 60 seconds on the clock!?

?And out they go!? Kirk shouts as the two girls race forward to gather some Velcro-covered plastic balls from the floor in front. ?They?ve got to load their cannons, and then shoot? Orange Iguanas are back first?that might help them!? Monica makes it back to her cannon first, but has trouble loading it, and with 44 seconds left, Carla sends a barrage of balls flying towards her opponent, and a close-up shows that two of them stuck to Monica. ?Oh, Orange Iguanas gotta see if they can get any balls to stick?? comments Kirk, as Carla ventures back out to the ball pit, and Monica suddenly lets a stream of five cannonballs loose at Monica, but only one sticks. ?Oh, only one stuck,? Kirk announces. [0:31] Monica fires another two more at Carla before the lever does nothing, and she heads out into the pit with 22 seconds left on the clock. ?Silver Snakes need to reload again,? Kirk says, as Carla violently tries to drop as many cannonballs into the tube as fast as possible. As Monica heads back to her cannon, Carla pulls back her lever and fires at Monica?s back, and she shrieks as three more stick onto her. [0:07] ?Just a few seconds left,? says Kirk, as Monica tries to fire at Carla, who sticks to hiding behind her cannon?but TIME IS UP!

?Ceasefire!? yells Kirk as he runs back into view of the camera. ?Whoo, that was intense! Come on over here, teams? right down here?? Monica and Carla both walk to Kirk, standing in front of the ball pit. ?Let?s count up? The Orange Iguanas got one? two? three? four? five cannonballs stuck to them, and the Silver Snakes only got? one? yes, only one?the Silver Snakes get the half pendant of life!? The audience once again applauds before Kirk continues.

?It?s a half-pendant apiece,? announces Kirk. ?We?re going into our third and final game?it?s worth a full pendant?and Olmec will tell us about it. Olmec, tell us about Temple Game #3.?

Olmec continues:
?To debase the currency, Emperor Alexius struck a coin. Today, you?re going to have to do the same thing?except that the coin you must strike is at the top of a massive staircase. When Kirk gives the signal, boost your partner up to the first step, and then they will help you up. Then turn around and do it again. When you reach the top step, grab the hammer and strike the coin with it. The first team to reach the top step and strike their coin? wins.?

?This is for the Temple!? reminds Kirk. ?Okay, teams?in position. And? on your marks, get set? GO!? Immediately, the teams spring into action, with Monica and Carla both climbing their way onto the first step at about the same time, but Monica appears to have trouble pulling her partner up after her. ?It?s gonna be neck-and-neck all the way up!? yells Kirk as the teams continue to fight closely, trying to make their way onto the second step. Carla pulls Shaun up onto the second step and they begin to climb the third right as the Orange Iguanas reach the second step. ?Oh, it?s gonna be close!? exclaims Kirk. The Silver Snakes pull ahead, as the Orange Iguanas struggle to pull themselves up onto the third step, but Shaun grabs the hammer and strikes his coin first to end the game!

?That?s it!? shouts Kirk from the base of the steps. ?That is IT! It?s over! The Silver Snakes got to the top first, so they get the full pendant of life!? Kirk is interrupted momentarily by brief applause.

?That gives them a pendant and a half,? counts Kirk. ?The Orange Iguanas had a half? The Silver Snakes are goin? to the Temple!? The camera rapidly zooms in the top steps as the Silver Snakes jump up and down in celebration and the audience cheers.

?The Orange Iguanas gave it a great effort?it was a hard fought match! We?re not gonna send them away empty-handed, though. We?ve got a great gift for them and here?s what it is??

Dee reads the prize:
?A savings bond from?Skechers Footwear. Makers of fun, exciting, cool shoes, sneakers, and boots! Skechers?it?s the ?S?!?

The prize plug cuts away to Kirk standing with the Silver Snakes at the base of the staircase. ?We?re gonna see if the Silver Snakes can make it through Olmec?s Temple,? he says, ?and and retrieve that Cracked Coin of the Emperor Alexius?right after this!? The camera backs away from the team, then changes direction and heads straight toward the Temple. It stops right in front of the Grand Marsh, tilts and focuses on the stage-left alligator, and then we fade to black.

The pendant splits, the camera zooms out from a tropical bird perched on a branch near the Steps of Knowledge, and then we fade to Kirk with his hands on the Green Monkeys? shoulders.

?Welcome back to Legends,? he says. ?The Silver Snakes have proven themselves worthy and now have earned the right to enter Olmec?s temple. But first, Olmec?s going to give them some information to help them retrieve The Cracked Coin of the Emperor Alexius.?

Olmec begins his rundown:
?You could start by climbing through the Tigers' Den and climbing down into the Vine Drop. Pull the right vine to raise the stone slab, then race into the Treasury of the Monkeys. Find the right bunch of bananas, and you could choose to go up into the Anaconda's Sanctuary, or into the Grand Marsh. Open the alligators? mouths to find the tongue, and you might have a chance to enter The Forest? of a Thousand Dragons?where you can grab The Cracked Coin of Emperor Alexius. Reach into the dragon?s mouths and find the key?but be careful: one of the dragons might be inhabited by the spirit of a Temple Guard! If they grab you, you?ll have to give up a Pendant of Life. Next, plow through the wall and into the Secret Spring.

?There, climb up the Falls and into the Catfish Cove. Find the correct bucket, and open the door to the Shriiiiine? of the Silver Monkey. Assemble the statue, and you may be headed for the Lion Cave. Place yourself in the correct mouth, which will allow you into the Wildebeests' Hideout. Turn the correct horn, and run across the Walk of Faith. Then, pass through the Room of the Tropicana Birds, race down the stairs, and back through the temple gates. The choices are yours and yours alone. You won one pendant in the temple games. Who's going first??

?I am!? shouts Carla.

?Very well, Carla!? replies Olmec. ?When Kirk gives the signal, you'll race through the gates into the Temple, and make your way towards the Cracked Coin. Hidden inside the Temple are Temple Guards assigned to protect three specific rooms. You can trade your pendant for an extra life and go on but if you're caught without a pendant, you'll be taken out of the Temple... and it will be Shaun?s turn to enter and try her? His luck. Hidden inside the Temple is the other half of your pendant. If you can find it, and you?re carrying the other half, you will get an extra life. If you can reach the Cracked Coin, all the doors of the Temple will instantly unlock and the Temple Guards will vanish. Return through the gates with The Cracked Coin of Emperor Alexius in three minutes, and you will both be handsomely rewarded?and here's how!?

Dee reads the team?s prizes:
?   For just going into the temple, you?ll both receive this sports package from Regent Sports! Whether it?s volleyball, soccer, badminton, basketball, or baseball, Regent is the name in games
?   If you can grab the Cracked Coin before three minutes is up, you?ll also receive an electric guitar! The Schafer Electric SST Guitar is designed by Schafer & Sons!
?   And if you can bring the Cracked Coin out of the temple before three minutes is up, you?ll both be going to the Bahamas! The Bahamas Princess Resort, on the exciting Grand Bahama Island, offering tennis, swimming and international entertainment. Fun for the whole family, from Bahamas Princess Resort!

?Let?s get this team to the Bahamas!? shouts Kirk. ?All right, let?s get in position? mouthpieces in! Let?s put three minutes on the clock!?

The clock slams down in the corner of the screen. ?Olmec,? says Kirk, ?please lower your gate.? The gate lowers as Olmec moans and the lights around him switch off. ?On your marks, get set? GO!?

?There goes Carla, into the Temple!? begins Kirk as Carla makes her way up the Temple steps and jogs past Olmec. ?She?s going down into the Tiger?s Den!? Carla slides down into the Tiger?s Den, and squeezes her way through the entrance to the room before climbing deeper down into the ledges. [2:53] She heads toward the exit of the room, but before she can, a drumroll plays and the first TEMPLE GUARD emerges from the bowels of the room! ?Oh, Temple Guard!? exclaims Kirk as Carla jumps back in surprise. ?Woah, scared her, scared me! She?s giving him a pendant though, so she can move on?? Carla regains composure and turns around to hit the actuator to the upper passage to the Vine Drop, and it opens. ?All right, now she?s gonna head her way into the Vine Drop,? commentates Kirk. Carla craws her way along the passageway, and then we see her back down the ladder into the Vine Drop with 2:45 remaining. She sets foot on the stone floor, pushing some tropical shrubs away with her feet, and makes her way to the first vine. As she pulls down on it, the vine sinks down by itself, activating a rickety bamboo contraption that pulls a rope to raise the rock slab. [2:36] She hits the actuator behind it a number of times, but the door to the Treasury won?t open. ?That doors doesn?t look like it?s gonna open,? Kirk remarks. Carla hits the actuator twice more before backtracking towards the ladder, and begins climbing back up to the door of the Tiger?s Den. ?She wanted to go into the Treasury of the Monkeys,? explains Kirk, as Carla makes her way into the Den, ?but that door wouldn?t open, so she?s gonna have to go all the way back to the Tropicana Bird Room?? Carla crawls through the upper portion of the Tiger?s Den, before opening the door to the Room of the Tropicana Birds. [2:05] She climbs up into the room, moving over to the leftmost bird first, hitting its beak. It doesn?t open, so she then moves on to the birds on the right of the room, and the second bird opens the door to the Walk of Faith. ?She lost some time in the Vine Drop,? says Kirk, ?and she?s gonna have to move quickly to make it up now!?

[1:53] Carla crosses the Walk of Faith with care, gripping the vines along the sides as the bridge sways. ?It?s swingin?!? comments Kirk as Carla hits the actuator to the Wildebeests? Hideout with 1:40 on the clock. ?Now she?s going up to the Wildebeests? Hideout Room, where she?ll have to turn the correct nor? Horn to open the doors,? stumbles Kirk as Carla appears in the Hideout. She turns the right-side horn first, pausing to look for an open door before turning the left-side horn, which slides open the door downward. [1:31] ?Okay, now she?s gotta go down to the Anaconda?s Sanctuary,? says Kirk. She backs down the ladder, making her way down into the room. But just moments after she sets foot in the room, a panel on the left of the ladder flips open and a second TEMPLE GUARD jumps out to remove Carla from the Temple with 1:24 left!

?Oh, Temple Guard got her!? shouts Kirk. ?Go, Ma?uh, Shaun!? Shaun makes his way up the steps, running past Olmec, and behind him as he heads up the staircase to the Room of the Tropicana Birds. He passes through the room, running down the stairs to the Walk of Faith. [1:12] ?Now he?s got to make his way across the Walk of Faith,? explains Kirk, as Shaun nearly slips and falls off the bridge. ?You?ve got to hold onto those ropes along the side to do it, or else you?ll lose your balance?it?s not easy, that Walk of Faith.? With 1:05 on the clock, Shaun reaches the other end of the bridge and begins to climb the spiraled stairway up to the Wildebeests? Hideout. ?The Wildebeests? Hideout is open, so he can just go right down to the Anaconda?s Sanctuary, where Carla was taken out,? comments Kirk. Shaun begins to head down into the Anaconda?s Sanctuary, half-falling his way down the last few rungs of the ladder. [0:47] He grabs the rubber snake from the front ledge, and then takes it to the right-side wall first, putting the snake in the hole headfirst and then sliding the rest in. ?Is it gonna open the door?? asks Kirk. ?No, gotta try the other one now?? Shaun turns around and feeds the snake into the left-side hole, opening the door downward as the snake hits the end of the hole. [0:32] Shaun begins to climb down the ladder; we switch to a shot of the Treasury of the Monkeys, as a small golden object can clearly be seen hanging down from the panel-door that had dropped down to allow access from the Sanctuary above. ?He knocked down those bananas!? cries Kirk, as Shaun knocks over two bunches of bananas behind the ladder as he climbs down. [0:24] He steps onto the dirt floor of the room, and then searches around for the bananas he knocked over. ?He?s gotta look for them now,? says Kirk, as Shaun searches the front of the room for them first. ?I think they went behind the? I think they?re in the back,? says Kirk, before Shaun finally heads to the back of the room, returning with the bunches of bananas that he dropped. [0:11] He places both of them on the altar, hesitating to see if the doors opened, before heading back up the ladder to retrieve the last bunch. ?Oh, just a few seconds left?? comments Kirk, as Shaun grabs the bunch and quickly makes his way back down. He stands up, about to place the bananas on the altar? but we?re OUT OF TIME!

?Ah, time?s up!? groans Kirk. ?They did a great job?they were a great time all the way, and they still get the sports prizes for trying. We?ve gotta go, though?see you next time for another great Legend of? the Hidden Temple, Wild Jungle style! Bye!?

The credits begin to scroll as various ending scenes are shown: debris sitting in front of the Grand Marsh, some boulders rising from between plants near the Moat, and the Coin still sitting in the Forest of a Thousand Dragons. Finally, the camera fades out, and the light bulb-Nickelodeon logo is shown as an electric buzzing noise is heard.

Artifact Name: The Cracked Coin of Emperor Alexius
Location: The Forest of a Thousand Dragons
Result: Ran out of time
Time Remaining: N/A
Pendants Won: 1.5
Diagram:



Summary:

Overall, this was a boring episode with a pitiful Temple Run. The Moat crossing used a circular raft and a set of vines for the team to pull themselves across. The Blue Barracudas, Green Monkeys, Orange Iguanas, and Silver Snakes all advanced to the Steps, and from there, the Orange Iguanas and Silver Snakes advanced to the Temple Games.

In the first Temple Game, the boys had to cross a pool by stepping on large "stepping stones" to collect crowns. The Orange Iguanas won 2-1, giving them a half-pendant. In the second Temple Game, the girls played the ever-so-rare cannon game, where they loaded their cannon with Velcro-coated balls and shot them at their opponent, trying to stick as many on them in 60 seconds. The Silver Snakes won 5-1, tying the score. The third Temple Game had teams climb a set of three gigantic steps to strike a coin at the top, and the Silver Snakes did so first, sending them to the Temple.

This Temple Run demonstrated how time-consuming correcting a wrong turn in a split-pit can be, especially when the layout involved passing through all three central shaft rooms. Carla seemed to take the direct path, by starting off in the Tiger's Den, but eventually met a dead-end in the Vine Drop, forcing her to go back and up to the Room of the Tropicana Birds, to the top of the Temple instead. She was taken out in the Anaconda's Sanctuary with 1:24 or so left. Shaun wasn't the fastest player in the world, and only made it to the Sanctuary with a little more than 40 seconds remaining. Time expired as he was about to complete the objective of the Treasury of the Monkeys, where the half-pendant was hidden (which he also failed to notice).

I honestly didn't mind the Temple Run at all? it at least looked challenging so the players didn't look quite as bad as they would be if they only made it through six rooms in, say, a "Secret Map of the Bandit Queen"-type layout.  I'll be the first to say that the legend of the episode seemed lacking and a tad rushed, though, but I actually liked reading the Temple Games. :wink:
