The King's Storeroom is a room in Olmec's Temple. The main objective of the room is to smash the clay pots atop the pedestals, and find a key in one of them. Then, he/she would try and fit the key into the keyholes on the pedestals to open the doors. At the beginning of Season 3, the King's Storeroom had replaced the Observatory (picture in infobox). While in place of the Observatory, the old background had stayed and a large triangular tray on the floor was added in the middle of the three pedestals so contestants would not make a mess when smashing the clay pots.


  • This was the one and only successor of the Observatory and was the only room that was relocated from its original space.
  • The slabs had renamed as "doors" by Kirk in some episodes in Season 3.
  • The right slab (pathway to the Pit of Despair/the Pit of the Pendulum) is dark in Season 2, but in Season 3, the crew adjusts the lighting to see the said slab.
  • All three episodes that featured half pendants in the King's Storeroom in its new location featured artifacts in the Quicksand Bog.
