This is the only time in which someone has actually "hugged" one of the Golden Idols. In all of the other episodes, a player just simply pressed an actuator on the walls to move on.
1st time the Blue Barricudas retrieve an artifact successfully
During a climbing Temple Game, Kirk says that the Silver Snake has problems climbing because he has no feet, but neither does his opponent, a Blue Barricuda (a fish, and obviously has no feet)
1st time the Blue Barricudas make it to The Temple
Olmec: Long ago, on a river in Northern California, the owner of a mill saw something shiny in the water and, when he picked it up, saw that it was pure gold. That lucky man was John Sutter. Within nine months, over 10,000 other prospectors came to California from all over the world to pan for gold. Some went around South America in creaky old ships. Their food was filled with bugs, and their ships were often wrecked in terrible storms. Others took a shorter route through Panama, battling their way overland through swamps and jungle and over the mountains to Panama City, where they hopped a ship to California. Some went by wagon train through Indian Territory and Death Valley. By 1850, most of the gold was gone. Unfortunately, John Sutter, the man who started it all, died penniless because he'd lost the secret map to his mine. Your quest is to retrieve that map and bring it here.
Kirk: Well, thank you, Olmec. Where is The Map?
Olmec: John Sutter's Map to the Lost Gold Mine can be found in The Tomb of the Ancient Kings.
