The gnome task is before the detour because Brenchel has it with them on the table.
Physics alone is not enough.

Remember that it is not CONFIRMED that there is a Speed Bumb. Second, I don't think the snowy labyrinth is a task, just an indicator of a team getting lost (spec).

“Uglier Than A Mud Rail Fence (Bavaria, Germany)” – Teams scour King Ludwig’s quarters in the same castle that served as the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty’s castle, and tempers flare during one Team’s walk through a snowy labyrinth, on THE AMAZING RACE, Sunday, March 18 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  Phil Keoghan is host.

The first route info I think is Sleeping Beauty's Castle where they are searching for a Travelocity gnome (pure spec). Remember that the Speed Bumb is not confirmed!

There's a brief shot of Mark/Bopper dealing with the witch in that clip. Since we've got multiple teams at the gingerbread task (Brenchel, Mark/Bopper, another team that is maybe Art/JJ) and the beard task (Joey/Danny, Dave/Rachel, Nary/Jaime), I think it's a good bet that the yodeling is a Speed Bump.

It's a good bet, but the Speed Bumb is not confirmed.

The labrynth may be a reference to the paths that lead up the hill to Neuschwanstein Castle. If you use google maps you can see a maze of roads surrounding the castle.
And btw, it's bump, not bumb.

I loved the fact that the narrator of the new preview opened with "Once Upon a Time...", as that is the show that is currently competing with TAR in the Sunday 7PM timeslot. :conf:

Thats the road up to the castle, I know it since I've walked it up myself :lol:

They have a bus that goes up to it, they have a horse drawn carriage, or you could walk up(all end at that road pictured)
I don't deserve the treatment that I'm getting

Hope someone can find the rink!

There is a BIG one in Fussen (BLZ) and another in on Malensteinweg in Unterammergau....

Regarding flights, the speculation thread has a discussion going about maybe teams drove from Turin; appears driving might have been faster.

Wow! Gnome curling is one of the most creative gnome-related tasks we have ever seen, right behind the Swiss chocolate gnomes! :colors

If Bopper & Mark couldn't pronounce 'Lingotto', then I am really looking forward to seeing how they will pronounce these terms! :lol3:

From a logistical point of view, I think the outdoor rink on Malensteinweg in Oberammergau would work best. Its walking distance from the Hansel and Gretel house.
I can't find any photos of it in action though.
The Oberammergau web site says the outdoor rink is behind the tennis courts.

 :lol:  Maybe Fussen is in contention, as it's close to the castle.  Maybe more contemporary buildings in Fussen.   :duno:

If you're searching be sure to add Eisstockschießen to your search terms. Canadian-style curling isn't as popular in Bavaria (biggest difference--no sweepers).

There is a smaller pub/theater in Oberammergau where they do "folkloric" shows (not the large one where the Passion play is done) that is the probable site of the speedbump. They seem to have a lot of different backdrops...


So not in the Hansel and Gretel house as I previously thought.

I am saying that is unlikely, Walkingpneumonia. My rationale is that the distance is 17 miles each way, times 2 is 34 miles. That is a lot of time in transport before even considering the task itself.
