"The Missing Weather Maps of Charles Lindbergh" is the 76th episode of Legends of the Hidden Temple.

Moat Crossing

The Moat design was interesting; the players each had a stack of floating rings they could stand on as they hung from a rod and climbed hand over hand across the Moat, but they didn't actually need to use the floating rings, they could go on without them and not be sent back. The Green Monkeys, Orange Iguanas, Red Jaguars, and Purple Parrots were the first four teams to make it across in that order.

Steps of Knowledge

One of the most famous pilots of the early 20th century was Charles Lindbergh. In 1927, Lindbergh attempted the first solo flight from New York to Paris. He built a new plane and named it "The Spirit of St. Louis." Legend has it that just before takeoff, a young weatherman gave Lindbergh charts for his journey.

"I hope they're correct", he told him.

"If they're not," said Lindbergh, "I won't be back to complain."

Lindbergh flew alone for 33½ hours. Once, he fell asleep at the controls. When he woke up, he drifted off course. Sheets of ice had formed on the wings, which might have snapped off and made him crash. But the wings held, and hours later, "Lucky Lindy" as he came to be called, found his way to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Thousands of people turned out to see him, and he became famous. Lindbergh donated his plane to the Smithsonian Museum, but the young weatherman's charts were lost in Paris.

Temple Games

Propellers (Olmec Wheels)

In the early days of aviation, people spun the propeller to start the engine. The two Kims had to spin the Olmec wheels in front of them representing propellers and keep them spinning for as long as possible. When Kirk gave the signal, they had to climb on their Olmec wheels and adjust their weight to make them spin. For each full clockwise rotation a player made, she scored a point. If either player fell off, the spotters would stop the wheel so she can climb back on and start spinning again. The player who spun her wheel the most in 60 seconds won. The Red Jaguar beat the Orange Iguana 15-9, awarding the Red Jaguar a half pendant of life.

Spirit of St. Louis (Bungee)

Charles Lindbergh named his plane the Spirit of St. Louis. Before Nick and David were were two boards, one with the word Spirit and the other with St. Louis. When Kirk gave the signal, they had to run to the first board, grab the first piece of the name, and place it on the plane. Then, they had to run back and do it again. They also had to do the same with the next board. The player to completely spell out the name of Lindbergh's plane or the player furthest along in 60 seconds won. Nick completely spelled out Spirit of St. Louis with 16 seconds of spare time just before David could, awarding Nick a half pendant of life.

Air Mail (Tilt Swing)

One important early use of the airplane was to deliver mail. Each player was on wing of their team's plane. Beside each team stood a mail drop with bags of mail with a bin on the opposite side. When Kirk gave the signal, each player had to run around, grab a mail sack and drop it into his/her team's bin. Meanwhile, his/her partner would be doing the same. The team with the most mail sacks in their team's bin in 60 seconds won. The Red Jaguars dropped ten mail sacks in their bin, awarding them a full pendant of life, sending them to Olmec's temple with two full pendants. The Orange Iguanas only managed to drop eight in their bin.

Temple Run

This was a rather disappointing temple run. The front runner absolutely blazed through the temple, and could have easily had a record if he was not caught by two temple guards so early. The contestant who took over was rather slow, and took many wrong turns. Unfortunately, this lagging cost the team their vacation.

  • This was the final episode to ever offer U.S. Space Camp as a grand prize.
  • This was the closest run with an artifact in the Dark Forest.
  • The Temple Guard placement was the same as The Silver Cannonball of Grandy Nanny, right down to the masks of the Temple Guards.
  • This was the first run with an artifact in the Dark Forest that did not result in a triple seizure.
  • Goof: When Nick and Kim were one step away, Kirk said "The Red Jaguars are one step away from the Temple Guards" instead of "Temple Games."
