The Treasure Room was a room in Olmec's Temple. In the center of the room, there is a large treasure chest. When a contestant enters the room, they can open the chest to advance down, if the door opens. If the door isn't open or they choose not to go below, they could hit an actuator on either side of the room to enter adjacent rooms.


  • Mitchell from The Moccasins of Geronimo was the only contestant to ever proceed downwards from this room.
  • The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa can be seen in the back of the Treasure Room in earlier episodes before it became an artifact.
