Anyone remember the coracle task in Leg 1? I think that task had potential but teams were too far apart it was kind of a useless thing (didn't change much of the order except the top teams).. even though it helped for some "funny" bits like Michael & Kevin and others..

So, I would love to see it return..

Except..

1. Taking place at nighttime
2. Putting the task when there's around 5 teams left.. it could call for suspense :cmas9 coracle-race? :cmaslol
3. Make this the transportation in getting to the Pit Stop.

That's basically what TAR Australia 2 did in their first leg at Misibis Bay, but with all 11 teams. Lucy & Emilia and Paul & Steve had a boat race at night to the Pit Stop and greatly affected Paul & Steve, Sue & Teresa, and Ross & Tarryn's first Pit Stop placement.  :cmas16

Imagine if this task was the difference between making the final 4 or not - certainly suspenseful!

Here's an iconic route that people will remember forever and wonder in awe..... I hope:

:cmas9 STARTING LINE: Creek Ranch near beautiful Lake Hatchineha which connects a stream to Florida's well-known freshwater lake, Lake Kissimmee. (HATERS SAY: Pssh... What a boring start line! :cmas3)
:cmas18 :cmas18 START LINE TASK: "Dissect" through clay frogs (total of 1,000) for one with orange "blood". When revealed, they must trade it to Phil to receive tickets on one of 3 flights to a mystery destination. (NOTE: Last team to find one will receive tickets on the third flight, carrying only that specific team an hour behind.) :cmaslol :cmas32:

• Leg 1 (United States --> The Bahamas) / Orlando, FL to Marsh Harbour, Abaco Island (Nature themed)
• Leg 2 (The Bahamas) / to Nassau (Festival life and Paradise Island)
• Leg 3 (The Bahamas --> Cuba) / to Havana (pre-race booked tickets, Cityscape & retro car calamity :yes:... but receiving no money for this leg :lol:)
• Leg 4 (Cuba --> Angola) / to Luanda followed by train to Malanje (African savanna landmarks w/ driving jeepneys and climbing tasks)
• Leg 5 (Angola) / Malanje (economic life theme)
• Leg 6 (Angola --> Kenya) / train back to Luanda to Mombasa (transportation use & restoration theme... HATERS SAY: :cmas3 :cmas15 :cmas30:)
• Leg 7 (Kenya --> Qatar) / to Doha and surrounding areas (Dhow Harbour shipping Detour, Souk Waqif, jockey camel racing preparation RB in desert with Pit Stop in the middle of nowhere :lol:)
• Leg 8 (Qatar --> Burma) / final Doha landmark then off to Yangon (broad culture theme)
• Leg 9 (Burma) / bus to Bago then drive to Mawlamyine (more in depth culture, durian juice Speed Bump, Shampoo Island Pit Stop)
• Leg 10 (Burma --> Thailand :gaah:) / bus to Mae Sot and drive to Tak (Detour) and Kamphraeng Phet (Roadblock & Pit Stop)
• Leg 11 (Thailand) / to Bangkok :groan: (Switchback to season 1 coin FF as an Roadblock, new landmarks and districts... HATERS SAY: Way to ruin an awesome route!... oh well, it wasn't that awesome anyways :cmas3)
• Leg 12 (Thailand --> United States) / to END CITY: San Diego, CA!!! :mas25

MEMORY TASK (ROADBLOCK): At Mid-Bayfront Marina, team members have to use a petal boat to ride to buoys placed randomly in the water. Each buoy will have its own number (leg number). The task is to get a Pit Stop picture from the dock and place it on the buoy with the correct leg number which it was visited. When all the pictures are in the correct places, their next clue will be revealed under a fishing rod.
FINISH LINE: Pacific Gateway Park (Follow the twisted mark trails until you see the Finish Line! Run Forrest Run!!! :cmas18)

(Another reason why I chose Marsh Harbour as a destination was to commemorate the amazing R&B artist, Aaliyah. :cmas4)

Same here. Only 8 countries in 12 legs! If you do that, at least do what TAR 19 did by having to go into Germany and the Netherlands.

Well I think you use too obvious places (Japan, Dubai, New York City, London etc) you should try to spam random places in a route, like TARAus1 and 2 did (Israel, Czech Republic, Poland, Sri Lanka, Philippines, Turkey, Cuba) and I really don't like the double NEL.

Well, just swap the first Thailand leg to the Bangkok one while Leg 11 goes to the Philippines.

As for a Europe leg, replace the first Angola leg with Rome, Italy (Ancient Olympic themed with Colosseum Pit Stop) OR Lisbon, Portugal.

Swapping it around to San Diego is pretty good, but then Cuba and the Bahamas will be :cmas3 (crappy) and WAY too predictable.


Or you could use it as a "Worst dream route in the history of TAR ever" example. Just an idea. :cmas27
