Maybe consider accepting "Palm Jumeirah" as that's the name of the shown landmark. Maybe also simply "The Palm". I tried both before just writing "Dubai" which was accepted. Palm Islands refer to this and two other palms "under construction" which has been halted due to financial issues :)

I was convinced the Louvre was some kind of feature in the water between two cliffs.

I was too... for a very long time. I was about ready to give up on it until it finally dawned on me. Most of the pictures I've seen of the "pyramid" are taken from the other side.

Perhaps accept Roman "Coliseum"? That was my first guess and I couldn't get the actual spelling despite trying many variations.

Do we absolutely have to include the 'Falls' part of Angel Falls? I tried every major waterfall(s) and couldn't for the life of me understand why none worked. Great stuff, though.

If I had had another hundred years, I wouldn't have guessed that the pyramid surrounded by water was the Louvre. I always thought it was on land.

Took me a long time straining to get the Louvre - like many others I thought it was something in the sea at first. Any way I can see the final image of it after the quiz finished? Since it was the last one I didn't get to see it.

Massively creative and brilliant quiz BTW - nominated!

Nice quiz! Maybe accept "Salto Ángel"? I know it's the Spanish name but it's called like that in French too, but not in English strangely. So I missed this answer even though I recognized it :`)

Oh just saw in the comments you accepted an answer that starts with "Angel". So maybe juste change it to contains "Angel" ?

All I can see on all of them is grey on both sides, with a green triangle in the middle.

And on mobile it isn't blurred at all!
