The Crystal Maze!
Wow I loved this game show and always insisted that I was going to go on one day. That day has never came!
The crystal maze was shown on Channel 4 between 1990 and 1995 and lasted for a hour.
The idea of the game was to collect as many crystals throughout the show, these were then converted into time in the large crystal dome where the contestants had to collect money.
The contestants entered the game as a group and are lead by one person of the group.
The game show has four sections, each had its own colour on the map and had a different theme; Industrial was purple, Aztec was yellow, futuristic was blue and medieval was green.
Within these zones were many games rooms, the leader had to pick out of his group who was going to compelte the task in the specified time. If the contestant did not get out of the room before the timer run out then they were stuck in there - unless the other contestants felt the need to get them out by sacraficing one of their crystals!!
The contestant did have the choice to leave the room but a lot tried to go for the crystal regardless!
The game is fun to watch and I imagine was great fun to be on, shame it is not around anymore!!
You may find repeats of this game show on Challenge Tv channel now and again but if you are anything like me you will have seen them all ten times over!!!
Great viewing - I miss it!!! :(
Summary: The crystal maze was fab!
