From a press release:

Following the recent announcement that Nickelodeon would be reviving its classic ’90s game show “Legends of the Hidden Temple” as a TV movie starring original host Kirk Fogg, the Penn Museum in Philadelphia has announced its own live version of the program on Wednesday, April 20 from 6 p.m.-8 p.m.

In “Legends of the Hidden Temple: Penn Museum Edition,” staff from the Penn Museum (3260 South St., Philadelphia), as well as five other Philadelphia-area museums, await attendees at stations throughout the galleries and grounds, testing guests with a variety of challenges, from knowledge competitions to scavenger hunts and more.

You’ll join familiar colorful teams like the Blue Barracudas and the Orange Iguanas before departing into the museum’s galleries to embark on an adventurous series of activities. Along the way, you’ll meet with staff from the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, the American Philosophical Society Museum, Eastern State Penitentiary, the Mütter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, and the Wagner Free Institute of Science, all on-hand to test competitors’ physical and mental acumen.

Gain points for your team by completing challenges during an action-packed 30-minute window of competition. But watch out for “temple guards” from various cultures waiting to capture you on your route!

Throughout the evening, replenish your energy with drinks and light bites from a cash bar. The event also includes admission to the Penn Museum’s world-exclusive special exhibition, “The Golden Age of King Midas,” at no additional charge.

Tickets are $20 for general admission and $15 Penn Museum members, which includes one complimentary beverage. Guests must be 18 years old to attend and 21 to drink.
