Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this competitive game show pits six teams against each other in physical and intellectual competitions for a chance to enter the Hidden Temple obstacle course and win prizes. Competition is fair and is usually based on a historical expedition or on ancient mythology. The show promotes teamwork, cooperation, listening skills, and problem solving. Safety equipment, including helmets and harnesses, is always used.
Is It Any Good?
Despite its age, Legends of the Hidden Temple is an exciting show for young aspiring adventurers. Because it's loosely based on famous expeditions like the travels of Lewis and Clark, the show rewards participants not only for their athletic abilities but also for their listening and problem-solving skills. Different players succeed in different parts of the show, proving that it takes teams of all kinds to get ahead.
With its fun competitions and ancient temple set, Legends of the Hidden Temple will be sure to appeal to young adventurers. As with any action show, parents should point out that participants always use helmets and are supported by harnesses, and that their challenges shouldn't be re-created at home.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
