Ahh I live an hour away from Niagara Falls. Possibly they could be flying out of Buffalo Airport? or even Rochester?

That is if Niagara Falls is the startline. Or instead of flying for the 1st task, they could drive across the border into Canada and do some things before flying out of Toronto?

The nearest airports at Niagara Falls is Buffalo and Toronto.  Toronto is a bigger airport than Buffalo and has alot of international flights outbound.  Could the race start filming tomorrow.  Weather for Monday in the area is rain, but tomorrow's weather there would be mostly cloudy, but good.  A Sunday start is most likely.  Driving to the first destination on the first leg happened before on Amazing Race 8, when the families drove from New York to Pennsylvania.

Rochester isn't as popular a city I guess as Buffalo or Toronto, but Rochester is roughly the same distance away from Niagara Falls as Toronto is.

If driving to the first destination is the case, than Toronto would seem more likely. The Buffalo Airport however, is only roughly 30 minutes away from Niagara Falls, so that could be the airport they fly out of if the first destination isn't in Canada.

Why start in Niagara Falls though if there are no plans to head into Canada.

This is all just speculation though, we still dont know if that is where they are starting off.

My friend and I were actually planning on going to Niagara Falls yesterday as I had off work. We ended up not going though.

If Ii didn't have work or school to worry about I'd definately go see if I could find anything. It would be disappointing though if I got there and it wasn't the starting line of TAR18 or if I went a few days early/late :(

Adding a little temper to the piece:

I have a DK series travel book on Toronto that I bought at LAX during the startup of TAR16 because somebody spoofed us into thinking the first destination was Toronto.   :groan:

We have no evidence whatsoever to suggest Niagra....but anything is possible! Just remember that Ontario has tons of corporate Amazing Race style events.

I saw that guys tweet about the race, on more of the tweets, by the same person he mentioned he met the producers and crew.

Can you give me the person's twitter id, so I can ask him where exactly in the city he saw it.

I've already questioned him several times. He works at a carwash and says a convoy of race staff stopped by. He is not in Toronto if that's what you are wondering.
There is not a whole lot of evidence to back this lead up so we should probably leave him alone.

Ok, heres some speculation, maybe the crew was heading from Toronto to the start line. So possibly Toronto is were they are headed after the start line.

The twitterer is in Brampton - which is just outside of Toronto and very close to YYZ.
Its not inconceivable that they were prepping cars for staging at the airport, although it doesn't seem likely they would publicize what the cars were to be used for.

You could also consider they could connect through an American city like Houston, Miami, Seattle, New York, Detroit, Chicago, or Atlanta.

London gives a lot of flight options, which they tend to like doing. But from LA they tend to go to South America first, or travel East->West.

You are certainly welcome to go seach all those cities and look for flights.......be sure to figure in the connection flight and layover times for flights from LAX to each one of those cities.
