The Toledo Walleye wore special edition Legends of the Hidden Temple themed jerseys and the game included related games and promotions.
The team has hosted Nick-related events in the past including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turle Night in 2019 and a The Ren & Stimpy Show theme night (and jersey) in 2020. The nights were sponsored by Buckeye Broadband.

Legends of the Hidden Temple is an American action-adventure TV game show that broadcast from 1993 to 1995 on Nickelodeon. Created by David G. Stanley, Scott A. Stone, and Stephen Brown, the program features a fictitious temple, “filled with lost treasures protected by mysterious Mayan temple guards.” Kirk Fogg is the show’s host, while Dee Baker is both announcer and voice of a stone head named Olmec who “knows the secrets behind each of the treasures in his temple.” Six teams (Red Jaguars, Blue Barracudas, Green Monkeys, Orange Iguanas, Purple Parrots, Silver Snakes) of two children (one boy and one girl) compete to retrieve one of the historical artifacts in the temple by performing physical stunts and answering questions based on history, mythology, and geography. Contestants trying out had to compete in several physical tasks, including rope climbing and running, as well as a written test. The majority of the contestants were picked from the surrounding Orlando, Florida, area.
A revival with adult contestants aired for a single season from October 2021 to January 2022 on The CW.
