YMMV / The Crystal Maze

  • Awesome Music: The main theme.
  • Replacement Scrappy: Tudor-Pole was nowhere near as popular as O'Brien as presenter. He wasn't bad, but he had an impossible act to follow.
  • What an Idiot!: On occasion, if you listen closely, you can hear members of the team saying the same thing about their own team-mates. This usually happens after a very simple puzzle has been bungled up by the contestant himself or the oft-unreliable help from his other team-mates. Of course, by nature The Crystal Maze is a very frustrating game...
  • Nightmare Fuel: From the 2016 version, the knights in the Portcullis Maze challenge in the Medieval Zone. Their faces are covered by full-face helmets, they don't say a word, look generally intimidating and if they touch you, you're automatically locked in with them. No wonder one contestant had a panic attack within 45 seconds of starting the challenge!
