Heehee, a thread about funhouse, nightmare and now crystal maze. Brings back good old memories. Who remembers this programme, with it's ever so tough games, wicked crystals and the brill crystal maze? I remember buying the lights out game cos of the show. I used to wish that I could be on the kids version of the show, and the prizes there were really cool, with a slightly greater chance of winning. Brill!
Do you guys remember the computer game of crystal maze? It was either on the net or on a cd, but I can't find it anymore.

They still show it on Challenge Tv I think. Question is, who did you prefer, Richard O'Brien or Ed Tudor Pole? Both have their pros and cons.

Part of the attraction was surely that the contestants were usually the most inept, uncoordinated bunch of idiots availabe, hence it was so pleasingly frustrating! It would have been boring if they won all the games.
I reckon that Richard O'Brien was THE original presentor. I was annoyed when they changed. The pole over the water one was pretty funny, as they ofetn went in the water. The sand in the mouths opf those statues was bugging, cos many people found it tough.

I didn't like Ed Tudor Pole at first but he grew on me - different to O'Brien but amusing in his own right.

I remember O'Brien making 'the team' run in circles round a camp fire in the Aztec zone like idiots after he'd shouted 'follow me to the next zone!' then proceeded to simply run around in circles. Comedy genius.

His 'mumsie' scenes were good too in the medieval zone.
Ah mumsie-a brill character. I also loved the "mumsie" scenes.

The Crystal Maze was class; Richard O' Brien was class.

I remember when they got rid of the Industrial Zone to make way for the Ocean Zone...

there was also a 'real life' crystal maze place based on the show somewhere near London - i went there, but it was awful.

richard was much better than ed, who reminded me of george in blackadder 3 and 4.

I agree with you there. Richard was a much better presenter than Ed, I found Ed rather patronising and arrogant.....And Used love it when Richard went to see Mumsie....

And there is a computer game. I have it but didn't find it that good.

I think I had a demo version of that!! There were only 3 games or something but one of them was where you had to shoot the balls into the statues with opening/closing mouths and it was really difficult. Ah the good old days!

I used to love the crystal maze so much...still do!

I remember having the Crystal maze board game, it was soooooo difficult. Always wanted to be on the kids programme. Was never the same though with Edd Tudor Pole.

I used to llooooovvveee the Krypton Factor. How wicked was that!!

Does anyone remember Interceptor (i think) the show where they wore a backpack with targets on, and they had to do a sort of treasure hunt to find the cash, but keeping there bak to the Interceptor so he didn't fire at them????

Oh nostalgia trip !

Nothing beat Richard O'Brian and his mouth organ ! Hehe.

There was a game in Medieval where the Crystal was there, sat on a shelf, and as soon as you took it, the portcullis would shut and what you needed to do was set the cogs up, and the rope, to wind the door back up enough such that you could get out. The amount of people who fell for O'Brian saying "The Crystal's there, take it!".

I think there was a game in Futuristic, where you went in a house, and you had to disactivate the alarm system. And this was done by finding sets of wires, in 3's, and you had to cut the wire, that is made from the combination of two others, some were red herrings, but the amount of people who mucked up Yellow & Blue = Green, Blue & Red = Purple, was unbelievable !

The memories.

Monday nights, quality stuff, when I was little, I always wanted to have a go on the Zip Line .

The closest I got to an assault course at that age was Panda's Palace at Skeggy ! (Someone out in UKL can relate to Skeggy Panda's Palace, please...)

I watched that once on Challenge, thought it was pretty poor television.

Whilest you mention Treasure Hunt (indirectly), used to watch that with Anneka Rice.
