My Ox is Broken, Linda and Karen's doomsday Roadblock (Philippines epic <3)

The fake food roadblock, pretty epic too~

TAR25 is done, so... :cmas23

Leg 1:
Compass and digging roadblock

Leg 3:
Sheep ARI

Leg 7:
Kart racing roadblock

Leg 8:
Maltese sport detour

Leg 9:
China cups detour

Leg 11:
Sidecar race detour
Coconut products delivery roadblock

Note that not all are switchback worthy, but these are tasks that I would be glad to see again. :xmas49

Leg 8:
Maltese sport detour

Do this and change it to be a Roadblock, with the only flag is the one on the end of the pole, and probably this task will be the task with the most amount of teams quitting Roadblock. :cmas32:

I don't want legendary challenge like Watermelon or Ox is broken is switched back. Because those are too memorable and the switch back will be underwhelming. Like season 25 Ox is broken, it's kind of boring.

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.
You are the last team to arrive.
This is a Philmination leg, so I'm sorry to tell you that you have been Philiminated from the race.

 :cmas9 That'll be exciting!  :cmas32: It can also be a fast forward, but since a roadblock is like a requirement, I think it can be better. :cmas23

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 want to have the singing task like Austria leg in Season 23, again. It's difficult enough and also entertaining. Tim's performance will be one of my most favorite moment in TAR forever.

The TAR18 dinosaur task is very physical. :cmaslol It'd be fun to see it again, but there's NO WAY I want to see some weak FF team begging for the EP  to skip that task.  :cmas11 #TAR24

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.

TAR1 Searching for marked location from Eiffel Tower [OK, maybe I am just thinking of the part of Karyn yelling "LENNY!!!!"]  :funny:
TAR6 IKEA Counting Detour
TAR7 Mendoza Meat-eating roadblock
TAR12 Camel-milking detour in Boulkiemdé, Burkina Faso [but the country probably isn't that safe now]
TAR12 Final Roadblock [can be in any location]
TAR21 Hello/Goodbye Roadblock [perhaps they can use words such as "How are you" or "Thank you"]
TAR25 Singapore's China Cups detour [can be in any location]

TAR12, 21 and 25's final challenges were memorable.

14 - almost memorable.

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).

Please snake eating task from TAR 23! Anywhere but non-third world country. With many teams (11 teams to 6 teams) remaining!
Whatever.

Forgot about this thread due to the lack of switchbacks. :groan:

My picks for TAR26:

Leg 1 Syncing Steps detour (as an ARI?)
Leg 2 Share detour (as a speedbump? :lol: )

Leg 3 Tree detour (as a roadblock?)
Leg 5 Stein & Stack detour :hrt:

Leg 6 Win By a Nose detour
Leg 7 Track & Pack detour :hrt:
Leg 8 Work & Play detour :hrt:
