The bridge Meghan & Brian are running across is at the wedding chapel.

The Poker room is at the Monte Carlo:

(based on the paintings, the carpeting could have changed)

Damn, I was just about to post that too :) Good eye!!
I got a clue because I saw the name started with an "M" and I tried looking for the Mirage, and since they are from the same owners, I found it easily.
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

So they arrive at McCarran, then in one order or another do:

-Graceland Chapel (Route Info?)
-Mandalay Bay (1/2 of detour?)
-Monte Carlo (1/2 of detour?)
-Mirage (Roadblock?)
-Casa de Shenandoah (finish mat)

Or something like that, right?

 :yess:  looking good!  This is the Monte Carlo Hotel/Casino Poker Room...  note the similar "old time" tacky paintings on the wall, and the exact same wall lights...

One can assume the high stakes gaming room is similarly decorated.  Close enough to call...

BTW, the Monte Carlo is a MGM/Mirage property.. so it's all in the family with the Mandalay Bay and MGM venues

To me it looks like Dan is running to the detour and M & C are driving away. This is followed up with Sam and Dan then leaving after they finish. So maybe M & C are ahead of them?

BTW, the distance from the front gate of Casa de Shenandoah to the finish mat is just around .2 of a mile. Perfect sprint distance!! :)

Sorry for the multiple posts, feel free to merge them all together mods.

Here's a better picture of those pictures in the corner at the Monte Carlo.

If that's the Harrah's sign in the background, then they're probably running in an alley next to the Mirage.

Assuming the six-roadblock ("Bowling Moms") rule is still in effect, then Sam and Ercka have to do the final roadblock, as both Dan and Brian have reached the limit. Meghan and Cheyne have the liberty of choosing since they're at five roadblocks apiece.

This may help confirm which is the roadblock task.

Haha not really, since Sam and Ericka are both doing something by themselves.

However, the shot of Ericka also has Brian in the harness, so maybe that's just a detour? Not sure.

While recent seasons have had memory tasks concerning the race (some using one racer 12, 14) some using both (11,13) but for the whole series its been 50/50 to date.  So it is possible that they don't have one in this season.

Memory based tasks
Season 3, 8,9,11,12,13,14

Standard Tasks
Seasons 1,2,4,5,6,7,10.

I highly doubt that the poker chips are a part of the Roadblock - because Meghan and Cheyne are found in the room at the same time, as well as Brian doing poker chips.

The trapeze could possibly be the roadblock - the fact that only Ericka is in a trapeze?

I sure do hope there is a memory task!

Ericka is the only one in the trapeze, but Brian is also wearing a helmet and harness. That doesn't make sense to me, as he's just standing there, obviously not strapped in. Unless he already completed his part and is waiting on her? There's too much speculation to think about  :groan:

I think the Detour is the bungee or the Mandalay Bay. The Roadblock (maybe) is the poker room?

Maybe the poker chips have something to do with a memory challenge. Perhaps they need to find certain chips corresponding with each leg of the race. :duno:

Just speculating, I'm probably way off.

That's what I was thinking too racer, the chips have something to do with the memory task.
