Exploring the set of “Wipeout”

As the third most popular game show in the world, many of you have probably seen an episode of “Wipeout”. For a while the the filming location had been a secret, but recent satellite imagery has revealed it and Google Sightseeing has written a great post to show it off.

  1. Haha I have never seen the show, but it is funny that it was discovered by google without them even knowing. Good catch!

  2. I am also glad you now put in a note explaning that the comments will be moderated though I don’t understand why it’s only Google blogs that are this way.
    Hopefully I’ll someday understand this great mystery.

  3. I think there has been another imagery update. I see new spot imagery in Japan and probably parts of China such as near Hong Kong. The imagery looks like it is already available in Google Maps.
    According to the Lat Long Blog, there will be border updates that is already available in Google Maps, but not in Google Earth.

  4. Never mind, the Japan one was from an earlier update in early April and I don’t know about China. It was probably updated in an earlier update.
