Speed Bump

<< < (2/3) > >>

TexasFroggy:
I'm going to guess it's something that makes a task more complicated ... so you can't go as fast. Something silly maybe, like having to carry the chicken through the last leg except it would actually hinder a team ...

I never said welcome to the forum TexasFroggy  :hithere:

I can't figure out if the Speed Bump is to boost your speed like the Fast Forward or if its like running over a speed bump and it slows you down or it just might be Donalds bump in his speedo   :cmas27 ?

Personally, I've never seen a speed bump used to speed up anything - except perhaps the wearing down of your shock absorbers.

So, I guess it must be a slow-down tool.

I agree, a speed bump really is something to slow you down.  So it could be an added task or something such as a blindfold.  It doesn't sound like something you could do to another team.  We have the U-Turn for that.  And it looks like the U-Turn station would be close by the end point of the detour.  If it were, say at the next location maybe 50 miles away, it really would be something to cause a team to lose the race.  We will just have to wait and see when the second one (there are only two) shows its ugly head. The one thing about the U-Turn, Yield, etc. is that a leading team doesn't have to worry about these setbacks.  Get there first and keep on going, and going, and going :yess:

Perhaps the speed bump applies to the first team to arrive at a particular point - in an effort to mix things up a bit. :nm:
