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

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.

Looks like the current parking lot at Chippewa Lake Amusement Park in Ohio. OK, just kidding, I have no idea.
From Nick Dakuginow on May 9, 2011 at 11:09 AM
Wow, tough one... no idea, I'll guess Splash Mountain at WDW?

I'll give you a hint. It is not a close-up of the veggie burger at Planet Hollywood, either. ;^)

Either the Tree of life at AK or the new tunnel at Cheetah Hunt ?

Rain forest cafe

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).

Six Flags New Orleans?
From Jeff Elliott on May 9, 2011 at 12:52 PM
Tokyo Disneyland?
From Terri Pierce on 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.

It's actually a piece of concrete tiling that is in Jurassic Park at IOA. The whole area is paved with fossilised tiles.

One person's been close. But no one's been right yet.

From Formula 40 on May 9, 2011 at 2:52 PM
Toilet residue. It's found in every theme park on earth.
From Terri Pierce on May 9, 2011 at 3:05 PM
How about the thing above the discovery center?

Matterhorn Bobleds?
From Rod Whitenack on May 9, 2011 at 3:36 PM
It's an overhead, aerial view of Kentucky Kingdom.
From Terri Pierce on May 9, 2011 at 3:40 PM
Have we said the park name? Or is it like something that we have said just in a different park?
From Dan Babbitt on May 9, 2011 at 3:50 PM
What about Kilimanjaro Safari's.?

Maybe it belongs somewhere in Camp Jurassic at IOA.

The Dino Institute aka Dinosaur at Disney's Animal Kingdom
From Daniel Etcheberry on May 9, 2011 at 7:36 PM
When I first saw this picture, the first thing that came to my mind was a sewage. It also looks like a mudslide.

The Swiss Family Robinson tree house?

From Eric Malone on May 9, 2011 at 8:11 PM
My best guess is the old queue for Dueling Dragons.
From Dan Babbitt on May 9, 2011 at 8:15 PM
Go out on a limb and say Jungle Cruise?
From Robert Niles on 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

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?
From Robert Niles on 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.
From aj geez on 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)

Thunder mountain at WDW!
