The Shrine of the Silver Monkey was perhaps the most iconic of rooms in Olmec's Temple. The only room to last the entire show's run, it was also considered the room that either made or broke a team's chances at winning. In order to pass through, a contestant had to put together the Silver Monkey: a three-piece statue made out of a square-shaped base, a middle piece that fitted onto a small bulge on the base, and a headpiece featuring a rod that fit through the other pieces.
