The Crypt is a room filled with skeletons holding books. The contestant must pull the golden books from the skeletons to go to the Pit or the Ledges. In later Season 2 episodes, Temple Guards would usually hide there.
The skeletons say "Get out of here!" and "Let go!" whenever the door doesn't open. In Season 3, most contestants would start their run here rather than the Ledges.
- In Season 2, the skeletons still say their lines at the same time when the door opens. In Season 3, they do not.
- Many contestants often failed to pull all three books, causing them problems. One example is Brian from The Sacred Ring of Sultan Suleiman. He did not pull all the books the first time, causing to go into the Ledges and meet a Temple Guard. The Ledges was a dead end, wasting precious time.
