Plot Synopsis

Hosted by comedian/writer Adam Conover, THE CRYSTAL MAZE is a one-hour game show that features Conover as the Maze Master, charged with guiding one family team through physical and mental challenges set within an elaborate labyrinth of four giant and immersive themed zones: Aztec, Eastern, Futuristic and Industrial. In each episode, the youngest family member takes on the role of team Captain. The successful completion of escape-room style challenges are rewarded with a "time crystal" granting the family five seconds in the centerpiece final zone called the Crystal Dome. The more crystals gathered throughout the game, the more time each family has for a dramatic clock countdown challenge inside the iconic Dome for a chance to win up to $25,000. The premiere episode of THE CRYSTAL MAZE features a family from Houston, Texas, tackling a range of challenges in the maze for the first time ever for U.S. audiences. This first season also feature families from: Scottsdale, Ariz; Lake Forest, Calif; Eastvale, Calif ; St. Augustine, Fla; Windemere, Fla; Chester, Va; Germantown, Tenn; Carollton, Texas; and Wheaton, Ill.
On Friday, March 27, 2020 at 7pm ET/PT, Nickelodeon premiered the season finale of THE CRYSTAL MAZE. In the season ender, "Put a Ring on It!," the treacherous Planet Walk and other nerve-wracking games challenge the Eastman family as they attempt to earn time inside the Crystal Dome for a chance to win $25,000.
