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

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

Red Bean Roadblock from TAR8
Festival of Colors Roadblock from TAR13

I know one member who would definitely not want to see the first roadblock coming back.

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

Just do anything in Andorra!!!  :gaah:


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.

Been watching Season 9 again and I wouldn't say no to the Fast Forward in Thailand with the fried cricket/grasshopper eating to returning as a switchback.

i said it once ill say it again

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

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
