Wouldn't be the first time, but this seems very specific. They would have done berrer to wait at the airport, sigh...

I waited at the cauldron, and camera crew, producer and security crew suddenly packed up. Over heard twitter and location was blown. Reporter at YVR snapped this photo of the crew at YVR airport: http://twitter.com/#!/chrisvales/media/slideshow?url=pic.twitter.com%2FfvFvZVqM

Here is a link to the Vancouver Sun, Vancouver's daily newspaper. They have a brief article on the filming: http://www.vancouversun.com/Amazing+Race+landed/5809982/story.html

Agh no way. I can't believe they're filming in Vancouver. I could ride the Expo Line and then the Canada Line to get to YVR. Too bad I have work tomorrow. (:;)

If they did originate in Havana here are the probable flights via Toronto. (The only direct flight to Vancouver is from Varadero.)
                      Dep.                 Flight                                        Arrival
HAV Havana    07:35 (07:29)   AC 971       Air Canada    10:58
Then Toronto to Vancouver:
YYZ Toronto    13:30 (14:01)   WS 681       WestJet       15:56
YYZ Toronto    14:00 (14:08)   AC 109       Air Canada    15:58
YYZ Toronto    16:00 (16:04)   AC 161       Air Canada    17:51

There are flights from Varadero to Toronto, but they have too little time between flights to get through customs and immigration.

Can't believe I missed a chance to see the teams in TO. Depending on the flights they may have had to change from terminal T1 to T3.

All this buzz and not ONE sighting?? Hmmmmmm.

Maybe only production has arrived?

That is EXACTLY what happens when locations are blown and security becomes concerned for the safety of the racers.

Which is why we try to NOT reveal locations before they are underway.

If this keeps happening, they could scrub the whole Vancouver leg. :groan:

Majority of the leg is in nature areas, nice contrast to a leg from Paris.

My Guess: After Canada teams will go down the coast to Californa than down to south america before going to nz for the 1st part of the final leg before a brisbane finsh line

lets see if i can make this 2 for 2 (i guessed teams would go to duabi after india)

i think they are going to duabi,uae after india (my guess)

Cuba's... an odd choice, but no more so than Israel last season. There's no travel advisories against it, and we don't have the weird "you can visit all you want, but you can't spend any money to support their economy" restriction the US has against Cuba.

It does suggest there won't be a visit to the US itself, though.

Since they are in Canada a leg in the USA should not be ruled out.

We only have 1 piece of evidence of Cuba so its not confirmed but it looks legitimate based on location and timeframe. We do have a gap between Paris and Vancouver. Havana to Vancouver via Toronto transit is the speculation. It also looks likely 2 legs in Canada? We may be then down to 4 teams, which would leave 2 or 3 legs left (if there is a final NEL).

US would be a good option giving direct flights back to the East coast of Australia. Also New Zealand could be an option too.

I think tarfly was suggesting that they would not visit the USA because they went to Cuba first.
I've been to Cuba many times and it's never caused me any problems with travel to any other country.

I've been to Cuba many times and it's never caused me any problems with travel to any other country.

I can remember the last few times I've had to do my visitation visas to the US they've asked questions about Cuba. And I know that when I got my work visa to do the summer camp they told me I would not be allowed to enter the USA if I had been to Cuba already on the trip.

By the way, if the Grouse Mountain cable car seen in the spoiler pics looks familiar, it may be because it's the same one Fox Mulder was hanging from in that X-Files episode where Scully was abducted by aliens.

(I know wayyyy too much about regular Vancouver TV filming locations.)

Yes it could!

It looks like TAR Australia will go from Vancouver to Location Removed. Banff. I'm going to have to hunt down the episode when it airs. I love Vancouver and Location Removed Banff!

After thinking it over, I've removed the info until after the next leg has been run as I don't want to cause people to show up and interfere with the filming. Vancouver sounded chaotic and it appears that at least one location was scrapped due to the presence of fans. I don't want a repeat of that. I've passed on the information to Peach to put it up later or I'll do it myself. If it doesn't get posted before then, which is likely.

Since they are leaving at 7 AM and 8 AM this morning (Tuesday) for a 9-10 hour bus ride to Banff, they won't get there before sunset tonight and I expect an HOO. Therefore, most of the activity will likely be on Wednesday.





Plaidmoon,
 A Tweeter may think it's only a 9-10 hour bus trip, but I took the train the opposite direction and it was about 24 hours so that doesn't compute. Here is the word on the bus trip:

The distance from Vancouver to Banff is 880 km (530 miles).  It takes 10 hours to drive, not counting stops for scenery, food, fuel, and bathrooms.

With stops for food, fuel and bathrooms, figure more like 12 hours.

With stops for food, fuel and bathrooms, figure more like 12 hours.

I got the 9 to 10 hours by googling for driving time estimates. I saw everything from 9 to 12 hours without stops. I was being optimistic. I figured they probably handed them bag lunches for the bus ride, but they may very well have stopped for a meal and gas break somewhere. The driver surely needed it. I don't think the estimate mattered much since they were surely going to arrive after sundown. I was confident they would have an HOO rather than shoot at night and miss the mountain scenery. Why go to Banff and not show off the mountains? Given the teams were seen running around late in the evening, you're probably right about 12 hours. It may have been 13 or 14 hours.

Amazing race at our hotel!!! What the hell is going on

(She's from Alberta)

More specifically, her twitter page says she's at Lake Louise, Alberta. Lake Louise is about 60 km (or 40 miles) from Banff and is another scenic landmark. It's not at all surprising they would be going there.
