Legends of the Hidden Temple, the 1990s Nickelodeon game show where kids navigated through a really cool obstacle course designed to resemble something out of an Indiana Jones movie, is back, baby! And this time – it’s for adults. It’s basically going to be the same show, but instead of young contestants, the players will be all grown-up. And instead of airing on Nickelodeon, the Legends of Hidden Temple reboot is headed to The CW.
When I was a kid, I was a big fan of Legends of the Hidden Temple, a game show that ran from 1993 to 1995 on Nickelodeon. Every episode started with six teams of two contestants as part of a three-round competition where they answered quiz show questions, Jeopardy-style. But the end of the game was always the best part, where whatever team won the game show section earned the right to go through the titular Hidden Temple. It was a huge obstacle course inspired by Indiana Jones movies, complete with traps and dreaded Temple Guards – basically, stagehands in costumes who would pull terrified contestants.
