The Holes of Python was a room in Olmec's Temple. It replaced the Bamboo Forest to take over the "packaging peanuts floor" area of the temple, and made it considerably harder than its predecessors.

The Holes of Python was a long room with four wooden boards stretching from the front to the back of the room, a ladder reaching up to the room's ceiling, and and in each partition, there was one or more holes cut into it. The first and last boards only had one hole, and they were both on different sides, so that the player would have to make at least one directional change during their journey through the room.

Like the rooms before and after this, the Temple Guard would usually hide under the "packaging peanuts" and jump out to scare the contestant.


  • This room is often nicknamed "The Treacherous Holes of Python".
