Debuting in 1993, Legends of the Hidden Temple ran for 2 yrs before going off the air. It was later brought back for re-runs on Nickelodeon’s G.A.S. (Games and Sports network).
The action adventure game show revolved around a temple filled with lost treasure; protected by magical menacing Mayan temple guards. Teams of two would complete mental and physical challenges for a chance at tackling the hidden temple and making it out with cash prizes.
The original show; hosted by Kirk Fogg and Dee Bradley Baker as the announcer and voice of Olmec the giant talking head and temple spirit, is making it way back to TV. Nickelodeon announced around March that they would be airing a “Legends of The Hidden Temple” TV movie starring, Daniel Cudmore, Isabela Moner, Jet Jurgensmeyer. The trio play siblings who break away from a boring temple tour in a jungle. They find themselves faced with real life temple challenges, they have to solve to survive and escape the temple.
Legends of the Hidden Temple is slated to air on Nickelodeon, November 26,2016.
Re-runs of the show occasionally air on Teen Nick’s “The Splat” block which features throwback shows from the 90s.
