I think I might found something interesting. The detour (?) task with dancing might took place in Zielona Brama (the Green Gate Museum) Just between the end of Długa Street (where the Neptune statue is) and Motlawa River (by which we see the U-Turn box). Found some pictures of the inside so take a look and let me know if it may be there:

55, 56: That's Marie & Amy, right? Roadblock is something with those cakes? They're in a house which looks like an house of Asean owner (Chinese, maybe).

Heck, I thought Marie was hitting the Craft Services table!!!

Found a matching pic from this website: http://www.gate-project.org/poland1.php. Says it's the Old Town Hall.

Yes, that's better matched! I looked only at the preview after the episode and the picture but the other promo clearly showes that it's not an empty room like in the Green Gate but with the columns in the middle like this ;)

What I find interesting is I don't believe we see Tim/Marie in costume anywhere. So which detour did they use their EP on?? :lol:

Maybe the statue one?

 :groan:  there appear to be "many" old town halls in Gdansk.... was wondering where those "triple windows" were....

The old town hall we want is called "Ratusz Starego Miasta". (not to be confused with the other, larger "old town hall" which pops up on searches.)  This one is much smaller.

The Old Town Hall we are looking for is on Kościerska Street, not so close to Długa Street with Neptun's Fountain and to The Old Crane where the U-turn seems to be located.

This is the place where Brandon & Adam are asking for directions: the Gdansk docks.

 ;)  ...not that far away.... Ratusz Starego Miasta (Old Town Hall) on 33/35 Korzenna Street is less than a kilometer away from the crane.   :)

 :umn:  Maybe the "donut" thing is a Route Marker Roadblock task.  What if racer is looking through apartment buildings for specific address, where they have to eat a homemade Polish donut (pączki) before they receive their next clue.   or maybe not....  hey, it's a stretch...  ;)


...they could be stuck roaming the vast socialist style block apartments for hours looking for the address

Distance wise it would make sense if the Detour Decision was at the Monument to the Fallen Shipyard Workers? That would mean one side of the Detour is closer to the Detour Decision, and the other closer to the W-Turn.

was wondering if TAR visited the shipyard while in Gdansk.... (yes they were at the memorial)... but could the racers be near the shipyard in the picture below...  pipes are not the same, but similar... something you would find at the shipyard (see inset).  Just throwing this out there....

If you see the pic of the guys, there's a sign who make reference to a hall (Sala BHP) that is near the monument. We've been looking for halls: maybe they were taken to the wrong one?

Good thought!
 
Quote
In the period of 2006-2010, BHP Hall, located in the post-industrial area once
belonging to the Gdańsk Shipyard, was extensively
renovated.

 

     In summer 2010, BHP Hall
opened to the public as a conference and exhibition centre. The renovation and
adaptation of the building was possible thanks to the great determination of
people involved, and thanks to the Trade Union’s own resources and the support
from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, as well as many other
donors. The anniversary exhibition THERE IS ONLY ONE “SOLIDARNOŚĆ” added
splendour to the ceremony of the historic BHP Hall reopening on August 24, 2010.
The exhibition, in a little different form, can be seen till
today.

 

     The one-storey part of the
building houses three exhibition halls, including two designed for conferences
or video shows with their own sound systems and multi-media equipment. The
ground-floor rooms have a capacity of 300 people. On the first floor there are
two lecture rooms for 30 people each. They are fully equipped with the dedicated
state-of-the-art audio-visual system.

     We would like
BHP Hall, rooted in August 1980 Agreement, to attract people believing in the
broad idea of solidarity, which would let us proudly call it an open place,
through inspiring conferences and quality exhibitions.

in preview we can see that in the time when Afghanimals arrive at U-Turn station the first slot is filled.. and then Jamal says "we have to U-Turn someone".. can we conclude that Afghanimals got U-Turned and then they U-Turn someone else? :funny:

This U-Turn board from the commercial seems to be in a completely different location than the one in the "next time on the amazing race" promo. Perhaps a double u-turn board from later in the race? If so, where is it located and what leg would that information place it on?

still looks somewhere europe-y to me. how long were they in europe? or was it back-to-back like in season 19?
maybe it's only for the shot. when teams encountered it, it was moved somewhere else where there weren't so many people passing it by ...

probably. yes I thought i was the only one to notice that. the first slot is definitely used. see caps no.12 of the first preview
someone used it on them oh my god!   :hoot:
i really hoped ass-animals use theirs in this leg so that in the next one they won't be eligible to use it.

but I have a bad feeling ass-animals used theirs on team oklahoma. If so I'll be pissed!!!! Completely!!! I hope they choked on that Poland donuts!

I guess it's the same spot but in the picture the board is facing the Motlawa River and when the teams arrive there it's facing the old crane

 :ascared  Not totally sure on this one, but this may be where the "donut" challenge took place. (if not, then it should have).

Gdansk is where the longest residential building (in Europe) is found, known as the "falowiec" (wavy block).  Nearly a half mile long.  How could BVM pass up such a devious search challenge.  Try to find an address here!  Just throwing this out there, FWIW.   ;)
