Where in the world of theme parks am I? (May 9, 2011 edition)

May 9, 2011, 10:58 AM · It's time to play again. You guys nailed it so quickly last week that I'm trying to make this a bit more difficult this time. Here's this week's clue. You tell me where in the theme park universe this sight can be found.

Visual clue

Submit your guess in the comments. Once someone gets the correct answer, I'll post the full photo and link to the location. If no one gets it right within 48 hours, I'll post the answer anyway.

Update: Solved! For the answer, read down in the comments.

May 9, 2011 at 12:41 PM · Pathway in Asia at the Animal Kingdom. I'd recognize that anywhere. The bike treads are there because so many people in Asia get around by bikes instead of cars or by foot, especially in villages like Anadapur (the fictional village where Animal Kingdom's Asia is set).
May 9, 2011 at 12:51 PM · Six Flags New Orleans?
May 9, 2011 at 12:52 PM · Tokyo Disneyland?
May 9, 2011 at 12:55 PM · Adam you may be right. The first google imagine of Asia at Animal kingdom brings up something that could be zoomed into that. Looks like flame tree BBQ is sitting behind it though.
May 9, 2011 at 1:21 PM · It's actually a piece of concrete tiling that is in Jurassic Park at IOA. The whole area is paved with fossilised tiles.

The Swiss Family Robinson tree house?

May 9, 2011 at 8:11 PM · My best guess is the old queue for Dueling Dragons.
May 9, 2011 at 8:15 PM · Go out on a limb and say Jungle Cruise?
May 9, 2011 at 8:33 PM · Jack Curley gets it correct.

It's inside the cave on Tom Sawyer's Island at Disneyland.

TSI cave

May 10, 2011 at 2:31 AM · To be honest, it was never going to be a park outside the US because this website doesn't provide any coverage of theme parks unless it's a Disney or Universal or Cedar Fair park. I cannot see Robert travelling to Netherlands or Germany just to take an obscure photograph, can you?
May 10, 2011 at 8:18 AM · Actually, we cover quite a bit of the SeaWorld/Busch Gardens parks, and I'm not just drawing upon photos I've taken for this feature. I'm planning to mix in some pics from our readers from international parks, as well.
May 10, 2011 at 12:34 PM · @Robert Niles Don't go international because i am going to be lost at words. It is to many parks outside the US to be searching for (In general)
May 12, 2011 at 7:24 AM · Thunder mountain at WDW!
