Medusa's Lair was a room in Olmec's Temple. Medusa's Lair replaced the Heart Room, and becomes the first central room to require an objective to be completed to move on in the temple. In Medusa's Lair, a contestant must put a certain number of snakes into the Medusa head mounted on the front pillar. The room kept the old background from the Heart Room and was essentially identical in appearance to its predecessor except for the stone statue and several snakes coiled around the stone railing.

In the first eight episodes in Layout XI that featured Medusa's Lair, the contestants were required to put four snakes into holes in her "hair". However, starting from The Lucky Medallion of Atocha, the contestants only had to put two snakes into the head as four snakes were too much for the contestants. The snakes also had to be put into Medusa's head properly in order for the doors to be unlocked. Once the snakes were in properly, Medusa would let out a loud shriek and her LED eyes would always light up red.

Medusa's Lair had a fair share of debatable incidents, although it is not known if there were production errors or not. Typically, the head would let out a small scream once a snake was placed in, but in six episodes (The Lost Love Letter of Captain John Smith, The Electrified Key of Benjamin Franklin, The Missing Eye of David, The Plumed Headdress of Cosa-Rara, The Silk Sash of Múlàn, and The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun), the sound effect did not play, possibly confusing the contestants. As a result, Tony from the former episode spent 1:08 inside the room, an all-time record for the longest amount time spent on completing one room's objective.

Trivia

  • Tony from the The Stone Head of the Evil King took the longest time to complete an objective in any room.
  • This is the only room to be confirmed to feature a half pendant with no confirmed precise location.
