Back in the early 90s in the United Kingdom, there was a game show on Channel 4 called "The Crystal Maze". It was a giant maze split into four "time zones" filled with various skill, physical and mental challenges. The objective was to complete these challenges to win crystals. These crystals can be exchanged for 5 seconds in the endgame - The Crystal Dome.

It was a very successful show back in the day and millions watched it every week in its six-season run from 1990-1995, in fact it was so successful that they even made Christmas specials in which children, YES CHILDREN! played the game.

Last year it was announced that Channel 4 would be reviving the show thanks to the success of the live immersive experience opened a year prior and a Stand Up To Cancer celebrity special filmed on the premises. The series starts June 23 and is scheduled to run for 20 transmissions.

Are you excited or what!?

Really like Richard Ayoade as the host. His jokes are very good too.
