To the makers of "Penguin Palace:"
You have a serious glitch on this track somewhere at the end of the track. I was racing with a total of 4 people in an XP Race. I was in second upon landing the last jump at the end of lap #3. Instantly, I went from 2nd to 4th! I neither heard anyone warp, nor saw anyone warp. Thought this was weird, but the weirdest part was still coming. As I crossed the finish line, which was the end of lap #3, I realized my race wasn't over! I was racing my 4th lap! Of course I DNF'd, because everyone else only had to race 3 laps. LOL.
The reason why I think there is an actual glitch in this track, and not a 1 time occcurence, is that this happened to Tuksilha awhile back, too. I was racing with him, and right about the same place on this track, upon landing the last jump, he disappeared off my map for the whole rest of the race. It said I was in 2nd place the whole time, and wondered why I couldn't see him anywhere on my map (I assumed Ghost Tuksilha was somewhere in front of me). As I finished the race, I saw Tuksilha at the finish line sitting there, like he had finished already. Only he hadn't, I ended up getting 1st place, and Tuk's lap time was about 9 seconds! Can't remember if it said he DNF'd. He messaged me after and said he discovered a glitch on the track. Because of the language barrier, I couldn't get him to explain. But since this happened in the same spot on the track as the one I described earlier, I would bet they are related.
Please look into this problem. I won't hold my breath, though

Interesting video. Of course, when it happened to me, it didn't put me ahead of everybody. It happened opposite, putting me at least a lap behind. And I didn't go off track. I went through the opening in the giant igloo just like normal. So maybe it was a variation of the same glitch?
When it happened to Tuk, though, I was right behind him, and he did miss the opening on the right side just like you did in the video.

I've seen it happen a couple times, not going to give any names. But it's very annoying. Now that it's in youtube that's one more track i can never race feeling safe again.

you mean you don't automatically veto all ice and city tracks anyway?
Penguin Palace was the exception to that, lol
(I like city tracks though :3)
