Re: Where in the World are Robb & Elissa??? 2014 Edition!

After over 24 hours of travel, lots of clues and lots of guessing, here is our FIRST location! (That's right, FIRST! When have we ever done one of these were we only go to ONE place?) =)

Here are all the clues to date in one place, look through them all and see if you can work it out! Post your workings below, the more detailed the better!!

Image
Where in the World can we be? And where do you think we are going?

Image
Oh, look... our plane is here!

Image
Our flights are looking good!

Image
Can forget where our car is parked.

Image
This means something.

Image
Ooooh! I like her. Maybe I can watch one of her movies on our flight!

Image
We also posted a really kick A$$ El Loco video! You should go watch it! It's some of the best footage we ever got!

Image
Oops! I just accidentally took this photo!

Image
Yay! Land!!!

Image
How pretty is that???

Image
Hey look how close that other plane is!

Image
Where are we now???

Image
There is a clue here somewhere.

Image
Oh, no! I hope where we are going isn't "Frozen."

Image
Wow, looks like ELSA has really Frozen this place!

Image
That looks like an interesting place. Maybe it's time for a stop?

Image
You could never have too much McDonalds... or can you?

Image
Where we are going, we might need a few more flushes!

Image
Time to board our next flight!

Image
Yay! Our next plane has power!

Image
You Only Use Scott 's Underwear Casually Kept

Image
He's a funny guy. I didn't get a chance to see The Producers on Broadway. Wish I could have. Oh, well, maybe NEXT time?

Image
Love little hole in the wall places like this.

Image
I feel like I was just here. But then again, this wasn't.

Image
There really IS a truth to de-evolution!

Image
You might not think it's a clue. You're probably right!

Image
If there is one thing I love, it's a good race!

Image
What do you like better? The movie or the show?

Image
Oh, yeah, we WILL be riding some roller coasters where we are heading!

Image
I'm sure we will probably ride a flat ride or two.

Image
Another airport. Are we done flying or not?

Image
Happy horse year, everyone!

Image
Elissa looks pretty tired. This is a great place to catch a nap!

Image
No matter Where in the World you go, there is always Starbucks! :)

Image
You know, we really like the UK...

Image
Here's a freebie! Where are we off to next?

Image
Happy Valentines Day, Elissa. I called ahead and had the Dutch put out all these flowers for you...

Image
There sure is a lot of ENGLISH here!

Image
One of my favorite roller coasters!

Image
Love this park! We really need to get back here again, soon... right? Soon!

Image
And yes. There will be McDonalds where we are going!

Image
Yeah! Space Junk!!! My favourite!

Image
I have to admit, I'm not a fan of most B&M hyper coasters, but I do like this one a little.

Image
I really DO NOT like this show!!!

Image
Time for our next flight! But to where?

Image
Nice being on planes with full entertainment system and USB power!

Image
These guys always crack me up!

Image
A Princess Bride clue??? Inconceivable!!!

Image
Cool looking park, huh?

Image
I really think it's over-rated, but that's just me.

Image
This may be our final clue for a while... BUT... it's a good one! If you figure out where this is you'll know EXACTLY Where in the World we are!

Image
Hey! Look where we are flying over! We love this place!!!

Image
Yes! I totally unlocked a new StreetPass region!!!

Image
Wow this airport is VERY clean & pretty! But where is it?

we_are_in_INDIA.jpg
There have been several people who have guessed correctly and used the clues!
mumbai_airport.jpg
For those of you who said Mumbai, India! You're RIGHT!!!

Now....

We know who said it first using the clues to show their work. But some people changed their minds. Other people have used more clues...

To be the GRAND PRIZE winner, you have to win EVERYTHING! Now that you know where we are, tell us how each of these clues pointed to this location! I believe there are only two (possibly three) clues that were throwaways. Every other clue, though, had some sort of direct or indirect connection to this location!

NEXT UP! We will be visiting some cool places while we are here. We'll post more pictures soon, and then we will be off to ANOTHER LOCATION!

Where will we go next?

WHAT DO THE CLUES TELL YOU? =)

"Fantasy" on the second picture on the plane probably refers to Fantasy Land Amusement Park in Mumbai.

Still working out what the soda may mean. Have fun in India!

I finally got all the Wicked, Rent, and Frozen clues (it's Idina Menzel, and Idina is an anagram for India).

Here's my list:
1. Tampa Airport, near Delta Check-in counter
2. Fantasy of Flight museum, which is on the way from Orlando to Tampa
3. Departures board, which allows confirmation of Tampa Airport as well as which shows Delta 1892 to Detroit being on time
4. Parking lot at Tampa Airport. This is the Lindbergh section of the garage, and Lindbergh was born in Detroit (the next destination)
5. Supertarget in Indio, CA. Indio sounds like India.
6. Julia Stiles was in the Bourne movies. In the Bourne Supremacy, the movie starts in India, and then Julia Stiles' character is seen in Amsterdam. Also Julia Stiles was in a movie called "Wicked". The unrelated musical Wicked starred Idina Menzel, and Idina is an anagram for India.
7. this_has_nothing_to_do_with_the_contest_hahahaha
8. This photo shows Delta-style seatback pouches in the distance. There's also a giant "D" front and center, for Detroit (the only "D" city delta was flying to on the departures board)
9. Tampa airport, the departure point
10. Snow on the ground shows that they're flying north from Tampa.
11. Same as #10
12. Frozen lake, most likely Lake Erie or Lake St. Clair, right before landing in Detroit

15. ELSA was played by Idina Menzel, and Idina is an anagram for India.
16. A picture of Detroit DTW airport
17. The McDonalds in the Detroit Airport
18. A lot of people get the runs from Indian food
19. Boarding the flight to Amsterdam. The passport in Elissa's hand shows that it's an international flight.
20. Delta style seatback pockets. Those power plugs are only on Delta 777, 767, 757, and A330 aircraft in coach, which points to flight 252
21. The "Evil Ex" featured in the first Scott Pilgrim book (shown) was Indian, and in the film adaptation the fight with this Ex was a Bollywood musical number.
22. Mel Brooks made Robin Hood: Men In Tights, and Adlabs Imagica has a Bandits of Robin Hood ride. He also made Spaceballs, and the Deep Space ride at Adlabs Imagica has balls floating in space.
23. There is a Carnegie Deli at Six Flags Great Adventure, where the coaster Nitro is. There is also a Nitro at Adlabs Imagica in India.
24. BALLYS begins with BALL, which sounds like the beginning of Bollywood, which hints at India.
25. The DEVO album "Are We Not Men" features a track called "Space Junk", which is a reference to the "Deep Space" attraction at Adlabs Imagica.
26. ha_ha_we_arent_actually_going_here_but_thanks_for_playing

28. Rent starred Idina Menzel, and Idina is an anagram for India.

32. A reference to the "Year of the Chicken" stuff earlier.
33. The euros and european-style plug show that they're in Europe (i.e. Amsterdam).
34. Starbucks in the Amsterdam airport.
35. The reflection shows the Harvest Market near the D Gates in the Amsterdam airport. Delta Flight 50 to Mumbai left from gate D43.
36. Shiphol Amsterdam airport, where they're going to take Delta Flight 50 to Mumbai.
37. Dutch Tulips, because it's in Amsterdam.
38. Signs at the Amsterdam airport.
39. This is Goliath at Walibi Holland in the Netherlands. In addition to this being an Amsterdam clue, the park also has a Robin Hood roller coaster and Adlabs Imagica has a Bandits of Robin Hood ride.
40. This picture of Blackpool still shows the Space Invader ride, which is a reference to the "Deep Space" attraction at Adlabs Imagica.
41. That's a picture from Freeze & Fries, an Indian restaurant
42. "Space Junk" is a reference to the "Deep Space" attraction at Adlabs Imagica.

Ha! This is all REALLY close! Here's a few of the corrections....

(I like that someone actually got this!)
6. Julia Stiles was in the Bourne movies. In the Bourne Supremacy, the movie starts in India, and then Julia Stiles' character is seen in Amsterdam. Also Julia Stiles was in a movie called "Wicked". The unrelated musical Wicked starred Idina Menzel, and Idina is an anagram for India.
Julia Stiles was in a movie called "Passage" which was directed by Shekhar Kapur, who also directed "Mr. India" which a ride at Adlabs is based off of.
7. this_has_nothing_to_do_with_the_contest_hahahaha
8. This photo shows Delta-style seatback pouches in the distance. There's also a giant "D" front and center, for Detroit (the only "D" city delta was flying to on the departures board
The D had nothing to do with it, great great catch!
9. Tampa airport, the departure point
10. Snow on the ground shows that they're flying north from Tampa.
11. Same as #10
12. Frozen lake, most likely Lake Erie or Lake St. Clair, right before landing in Detroit

21. The "Evil Ex" featured in the first Scott Pilgrim book (shown) was Indian, and in the film adaptation the fight with this Ex was a Bollywood musical number.
The characters name was Matthew Patel and Patel is a popular Indian name
22. Mel Brooks made Robin Hood: Men In Tights, and Adlabs Imagica has a Bandits of Robin Hood ride. He also made Spaceballs, and the Deep Space ride at Adlabs Imagica has balls floating in space.
The Spaceballs, had nothing to do with it, but again, great catch!
23. There is a Carnegie Deli at Six Flags Great Adventure, where the coaster Nitro is. There is also a Nitro at Adlabs Imagica in India.
I actually meant this that Deli sounds like New Delhi

24. BALLYS begins with BALL, which sounds like the beginning of Bollywood, which hints at India.
There is a city in India named Bally.

25. The DEVO album "Are We Not Men" features a track called "Space Junk", which is a reference to the "Deep Space" attraction at Adlabs Imagica.
Space Junk was the right clue, but the song includes the lyrics "India"

26. ha_ha_we_arent_actually_going_here_but_thanks_for_playing
27. Suzuka Circuit had a "Mad Cobra" ride, and cobras are primarily associated with India.
Mad Cobra was a Premier coaster and so is Deep Space.

28. Rent starred Idina Menzel, and Idina is an anagram for India.
29. This image is Le Nitro at Dennlys Parc, and Adlabs Imagica has a coaster called Nitro. Also, the image is called "Gold Mine Roller Coaster", which is a reference to Gold Rush Express at Adlabs Imagica.
30. Scrambler at INDIAna beach. INDIAna starts with INDIA.
31. Gate E7 in Amsterdam, where Delta flight 252 from Detroit just landed.
32. A reference to the "Year of the Chicken" stuff earlier.
Just a sign at AMS that we saw. This one was kind of a throwaway.

33. The euros and european-style plug show that they're in Europe (i.e. Amsterdam).
34. Starbucks in the Amsterdam airport.
35. The reflection shows the Harvest Market near the D Gates in the Amsterdam airport. Delta Flight 50 to Mumbai left from gate D43.
36. Shiphol Amsterdam airport, where they're going to take Delta Flight 50 to Mumbai.
37. Dutch Tulips, because it's in Amsterdam.
38. Signs at the Amsterdam airport.
39. This is Goliath at Walibi Holland in the Netherlands. In addition to this being an Amsterdam clue, the park also has a Robin Hood roller coaster and Adlabs Imagica has a Bandits of Robin Hood ride.
40. This picture of Blackpool still shows the Space Invader ride, which is a reference to the "Deep Space" attraction at Adlabs Imagica.
This was actually meant to show the junior woodie because there is a clone of Zipper Dipper in India.

41. That's a picture from Freeze & Fries, an Indian restaurant
This is actually a picture from McDonalds in India! I had to flip the image so you couldn't google image search it!

42. "Space Junk" is a reference to the "Deep Space" attraction at Adlabs Imagica.
See above.

43. A picture of Six Flags Great Adventure's Nitro. There is also a Nitro at Adlabs Imagica in India.

45. Boarding the next flight, which is a very wide plane. Delta 50 is on an widebody A330.

49. Suzuka Circuit's "Mad Cobra" ride. Cobras are primarily associated with India.
See above

50. IN-n-out burger. IN is the official 2-letter code for India.
This is actually an In-n-Out Burger in Indio. Was seeing if you'd actually look it up again! lol

51. Buildings near Adlabs Imagica.
52. The Palm in Dubai, which Delta flight 50 passed over going from Amsterdam to India.
53. India used to be administered by the British government.
54. Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai
55. A mural showing bollywood stars in the Mumbai airport
