I'm glad to see them use the trains. They are frequent enough that a bunching shouldn't be needed. (But I haven't researched that.)

I know everyone is seen doing the posing and the Legoland task should be after the roadblock. So it can't be a FF but it sure looks like a green envelope :lol:

The ride they are on is the Pirate Carousel at Legoland. It is in the middle of the park so they have to walk a little ways. I can't believe there were no tweets from there.
I say it's a FF on the Legoland task and 3 teams namely Ernie & Cindy, Marcus & Amani and Jeremy & Sandy will race for FF prize but none of them will complete it because probably all of them got puked on riding a barrel-like shaped carousel just like Sandy did on what we'd saw on a preview of that next episode, and they'd wasted it. Damn! :(

just a couple of things...

1. everyone does the legoland task.

2. everyone picked the "muscle competition" detour choice, which is why we do not see a 2nd task.

Do we know if there are any tasks taking place in Germany, or are we simply riding through?

What's this I see?



It looks like a folded map to me. May be a Legoland map which is included in the clue envelope?

Edit: I think I'm right. Look at this Legoland interactive map and PDF: http://www.legoland.dk/da/Oplev-LEGOLAND/ It's green :)

I think you're right Tarfan2! We've also heard some hints that there would be no FFs this season..

And the more likely ride where the task is performed seems to be "#38: Pirate Carrousel" (look at the interactive map: http://www.legoland.dk/en/Explore/)

First time poster/longtime reader...

Scene of the lost ticket appears to be in Germany...notice the sign in German.

While everyone has probably made this deduction, yes, that is the DB reservation office in the Hamburg Hautbahnhof.  I was just in there booking a train trip a month ago. It is just inside the entrance seen in the other photo, to the right when you walk in.  Very cool to see a place I've been so recently featured, even if it is just en route.

19 Euros is too cheap for a ticket to Belgium.  It either says a higher amount, or it could just be a reservation, as some trains require seat reservations, while others do not.

Great job everyone!!

But do look through all the posts...we have some great finds here, straring with Chateau's find of LegoLand AND the ride!! :hearts:

The next episode goes to Legoland in Billund Denmark  :lol:    :hoot:



It's about a 3 hour drive on the E20 west of Copenhagen.




What we are looking at here is called the Pirates Carousel.

On second glance it may actually be 29 Euros, but screencap is low res.   :lol3:

This is the best I could do with it. I wouldn't put too much effort into it, though; it might be planted, just like the passport (there's a transition, a distinct break, between E/C exiting and the camera zooming in on the ticket).

Okay, bear with me all :   With the first set of screen caps I was leaning towards an art museum as the location for the muscle task.  Now I am thinking it is at a hotel ballroom.  I think it may be at The Conrad in brussels.  I haven't found a direct  pic of the stage but I've come across some other pics of the conrad ballroom and there are other paintings on walls that look similar to the one on the stage, and the style of the walls looks the same.  Trying to set up link but having problems .... Will keep trying!

Could the muscle thing be an Active Route Info instead of a Detour?

Caper
here is a picture of the Conrad hotel ballroom but I don't know if this is it. The chairs don't match.
It's picture 14

Also, a question: Aren't they going to Ghent? It's this episode or the next? Because the task could also be in Ghent.

I'm starting to think that too. Or maybe there's an unaired side of the Detour.

IF there is no Detour, and the Roadblock is in Denmark, we'd have.

PS->RB->RI->Trains->RI->Task->PS.

Being the trains a bunching point, I have to think this leg is either a NEL or a TBC. IF not, producers are SO EVIL!

“It’s Speedo Time” (Brussels, Belgium) – After a potentially game-changing error, one team hopes for a lucky break, and donning only a Speedo for their Detour task, Racers get in touch with their inner exhibitionists, on THE AMAZING RACE Sunday, Nov. 20 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  Emmy Award nominee Phil Keoghan is the host.

We know the speedos are definitely part of the detour.

I am thinking this DETOUR could well be in Ghent. The castle itself doesn't seem to have a room like this that I can find though...
