Future Switchbacks
« on: May 16, 2013, 01:46:24 AM »
So Season 22 featured 2 different switchbacks and it has become evident Switchbacks will continue to appear in future seasons but the question is what tasks would you like to see return as Switchbacks? For me I have three tasks I'd like to see return as Switchbacks firstly being the memorable meat-eating roadblock in Argentina, Secondly the memory challenge in Alaska and finally the memory challenge in Portland. What switchbacks would you like to see?

I would love to see the Unused/Unaired Detour choice from TAR 19 Belgium.

It remains one of my biggest TAR questions ever.....

Actually the detour was between the Bodybuilding Task that all teams chose to do and the Tintin task they did the next leg.

I haven't watched all seasons of TAR, but based on what I've watched, I hope these return as Switchbacks:
- TAR 15's Eat the Wasabi Roadblock in Japan
- TAR 16's In the Trenches or Under Fire Detour in France

I can tell you love that Detour because you used it in TAR:CK. :lol:

But yeah, I agree. We need another Japanese Game Show Roadblock. :)

TAR15 Farmer's Game/Farmer's Dance

Please, no. Not memorable at all, at least for me.

I haven't watched all seasons of TAR, but based on what I've watched, I hope these return as Switchbacks:
- TAR 15's Eat the Wasabi Roadblock in Japan
- TAR 16's In the Trenches or Under Fire Detour in France

I would say no to this one as well. Memorable but not classic TAR. Too manufactured and fake. A second time would only make it worse.

But I agree that the TAR 6 lock Roadblock would be good, as well as the TAR 7 meat Roadblock and TAR5's Lagen wall climb.

Hm...as for TAR 9, how about the crickets Fast Forward? Or perhaps the epic final challenge involving the flags. For TAR 10 we could revisit the Great Wall climb, the Detour or Roadblock from Leg 2 (both excellent tasks), or the Lug It or Lob It Detour. For All-Stars, it could be fun to bring back the Eat It Up or Roll It Out Detour. :lol:

This IS correct. That is why they alll had to go out EARLY the next AM and do TinTin. Product placement!

TAR 17 leg 1 coracle task is one of those tasks that had potential but the teams were a little too far apart on that leg.

It'll never happen but I would be happy if they brought this task back :-[

We kinda did have a switch back to the lock task.. i thought it was really similar to the tree of love task in russia in S21 but future switch backs i would love to see S12 finale  memory task.. its one of the most plausible tasks and can be used for many seasons to come..

I would also love to see some unaired tasks

S1 Leg 1 roadblock
S1 Vatican City Fast Forward.
S10 Leg 7

Also this could be an awesome switchback but put it as a finale memory task
S10 Leg 9 Make Music Detour: Imagine the Final 3 Rapping about eveywhere theyve been. Tests Their memory, creativity, and possibly physically (making a dance to go with it) Maybe combine it with some props that appeared on the race and a few decoys

I say...
TAR7 Leg 3 roadblock (eat four pounds of a traditional Argentinian feast)
TAR12 memory task  :hearts:
TAR16 Leg 5 detour (pigeon & morse code) + u-turn
TAR17 Leg 1 roadblock (watermelons) :hearts:
TAR20 Leg 3 detour (harp & watermelons) and roadblock (bottle dance)
TAR20 Leg 9 roadblock (Bollywood dancing)
TAR22 Leg 1 2nd roadblock (sandcastles) :hearts:
TAR22 Leg 7 detour (brains & brawn)

I'm pretty sure about the watermelon roadblock.
btw, is this a speculation thread or a wishlist?

If this is just a wishlist thread then I can boot it over there. :neener:

If you want to have some REAL discussion of what would make a good switchback, then go for it! Some of y'all have some good ones, excluding ANYTHING that makes people :barf

Season 2 leg 7 in hong kong .. they should have a switchback for the detour choice in hong kong which is wishing tree or herbal tea
the wishing tree should have a switchback ... only oswald and danny used the choice.. so... a tar season should go to hong kong and have a leg there.. then in the next leg visit the wishing tree, make a wish ( as a task ) and then fly to the next destination

TAR 6's padlock in xi'an was a perfect challenge just before the final pitstop of amazing race 6. they should clearly do it again
TAR 10's tomato challenge. but this time they should make it as a roadblock so all teams have to do it
TAR 13's paint party in india. very good road block where kelly or christy struggled.
TAR 17's cicrus detour in russia was epic. the detours were both equally challenging.
TAR 18's country measuring roadblock. it was very cool, maybe they'll do it in a different small country

I'd like to see the Plow task return and maybe taxi driving in Japan. I think tasks from the early seasons are less likely to come back due to how quick many of them were and how focused on the trip TAR was. Now the focus of the show seems to be on the tasks more than the places.

The sandcastle roadblock is based on luck. Bates got it right away and finished 2nd. I guess he just arrived there in a few minutes.

Sand task from Bora Bora in S22 should be a great switchback. I like the Seychelles's detour task in S16, S18 cheese task in Switzerland, something like Liechenstein counting in S18. There are a few of challenge

TAR23's over, and if I were to choose which tasks would fit in for a future switchback, they'd be:
rb1A
rb1B
dt2
rb2 (unmemorable)
dt3 (I love this one. :cmas9 )
rb3
dt4
rb4
dt5 (I love this too, esp. with the w-turn. :cmas16 )
rb5 (the randomness :cmas23 )
ff6
dt6
rb6 (If memorable, then we might see it again. :cmas10 )
dt7
rb7
dt8 (unmemorable)
sb8
rb8 (I like this, but probably unmemorable.)
dt9
rb9 (The Anklung! My favorite task (to watch) for the season. :cmas23 :xmas110 It will probably be a switchback after 15-20 years/seasons.)
rb10 (not memorable enough)
dt10
dt11
sb11
rb11 (The robot building rb! My 2nd favorite for the season. :cmas23 :xmas110)
rb12

Actually the detour was between the Bodybuilding Task that all teams chose to do and the Tintin task they did the next leg.

I don't think so. It would seem to unbalanced if that was it.

This IS correct. That is why they alll had to go out EARLY the next AM and do TinTin. Product placement!

It IS puzzling though why they thought bodybuilding would be easier. :P

Wait?!?! So the other side of that detour was the Tintin mural?

My wishlist, comments, and possible improvements! Far into the series's run, I actually like that each season has one or two Switchbacks as a nod from the earlier and earliest seasons.

S03:
Vietnam - Detour: Basket Boats/Basket Bikes [The bare bones of the tasks is already great, maybe a farther route?]
S05:
Russia - Roadblock: Caviar eating [As an improvement, maybe more caviar?]
Philippines - Detour (one side): Plow [Probably make it as a Route Info task since the Fowl detour is unknown]
S06:
Hungary - Roadblock: Spicy soup eating [Make it spicier!]
China - Roadblock: Lock and key [The task already have an amazing mechanic]
S07:
Argentina - Roadblock: Meat feast [Already a great endurance task. Maybe add veggies?]
S08:
Costa Rica - Roadblock: Red coffee bean search [Maybe they could make it just one big pile of coffee beans instead of separate ones]
S10:
Vietnam - Detour: Over/Under [This detour is all in the wind. The harder it is, the better this task would be.]
S11:
Argentina - Roadblock: Mail search [If it's not a returning seasons team, maybe letters from family and friends? Search through a larger mailbag, of course.]
S12:
Burkina Faso - Roadblock: Camel milking [I'd be more surprised if they could visit this country again.]
S13:
India - Roadblock: Festival of Colors [Change the way they have to search for a clue and make it more confusing for the teams.]
S14:
Russia - Roadblock: Run in underwear in the cold [Maybe as an added difficulty, they don't let the Roadblock performer wear clothes for the rest of the leg.]
S15:
The Netherlands - Detour: Farmer's Game/Farmer's Dance [Again, all in the wind. And cold. :)]
Czech Republic - Roadblock: Kafka telephones [This task already had a gradiose feel to it. Make the racers search for a full phrase instead of just 'FRANZ'.]
Las Vegas - Poker chip counting [One of the amazing shuffling tasks in the finale]
S17:
United Kingdom - Roadblock: Watermelon catapult [The looming danger of a watermelon face plant, how would teams react? :)]
Russia - Detour: Classical Music/Classic Cinema [An almost perfect detour, the judge just made it so wrong.]
China - Roadblock: Hong Kong fake food search [Another memorable needle-in-a-haystack task]
S18:
China - Roadblock: Dinosaur puzzle [The most amazing task of the season in my opinion, and the most shuffling occurred here too, I think.]

Hello everyone.

What tasks from past TAR seasons do you think would make the best switchbacks for future seasons? If possible, try to think of tasks that would be exciting to see again, even though you already know how to get past the task.

Here are examples of what I mean from TAR 23:

The choir task in leg 6 would make a good switch back, as it was innately difficult; while the robot task in leg 11 would not, as we already know the solution, and anyone repeating it would know about the mistake Leo & Jamal made.

Feel free to discus.

I wouldn't mind seeing the Dinosaur RB from Season 18 Leg 5 again.  This was a pretty hard task and it really made a few teams struggle.

Or the Chinese Zodiac RB from Leg 4 - The one where they had to search for the 12 wooden charms with the animals of the Chinese Zodiac, and then place them in mythological order.  I think that was what the order was based on anyway?  ???

^^^ This could work if they used a different robot design, although I guess it wouldn't really be seen as a switchback then?  :lol:

The robot was interesting, but I would love to see the dinosaur come back, tough one. I'd like to see them beef up the Chinese Zodiac one and make another step out of it.

It's not a compelling task at all tbh, the main thing that made the task good were Brooke and Claire. It would possibly bring more rating though b/c the original became a viral video.

I think this All-Stars season could have done a Switchback (or at least a rehash since they didn't go to Argentina) of that Roadblock from the first All-Stars where they had to find and read out loud a letter from a team in their first season (lol...Susan & Patrick basically insulting Rob & Amber).

But I suppose with so many Season 22 teams and three-peaters, it wouldn't work as well.

As for future Switchbacks...I'd say digging for scarabs in Egypt from Season 5, if it's ever safe enough to go back to that country a second time. The one that Marshall & Lance never finished.

Pretty much the only reason why the watermelon RB was memorable was because of the accident that happened. If it didn't happen, it would probably have been an unmemorable task.

The Watermelon has to happen though. They'll have to use that accident as flashback, then reuse it as a (possibly boring, but still memorable) task.

I hope they do a Finale Memory Challenge like this again.

Spot the places they have been to, but at the same time, test their short term memory and allow no notes to be taken, and finding their clues in a huge area of items (in this season; containers)...

BUT, I would really like them to have a small task like TAR 12 which they have to complete after they are done.. other wise it gets really predictable and straight to the point who wins after finishing the memory challenge first.

TAR 25 memory final roadblock challenge need to be reused over and over. The challenge is tested everything on physical (running to find the right container), long term memory (remember the city in order) and short term memory (remember all the numbers in order without using any single note).
TAR 25: The best season since TAR 17 & TAR 18.
TAR AS3 or UB2 Potential Contestant:
Adam & Bethany (25), Misti & Jim (25), Kym & Alli (25), Brooke & Robbie (25), Shelly & Nici (25)
