Well, that was certainly unexpected!  "Hidden" is definitely the right word for that route!  I guess having a level editor does help expose some hidden level features.  I certainly wouldn't have thought to look over there for hidden non-ice blocks.

On that note, here's a slightly less unexpected improvement to Level 51 (Chaos Maze): 77/80.  No hidden features here - just an embarrassing oversight of a blatantly obvious backroute.

Saving 76 with that route is trivial, but saving 77 seems to require a bit of tricky timing, so here's a replay that shows how to do it.

Yep, that's not the first time I've used that trick to squeeze out an extra lemming.  The records for "Land Ahoy" and "It's the Name of the Game" also involve the same general idea to separate the worker from the crowd.

Speaking of L3D records, if anyone wants hints/solutions for any of them, I can provide them upon request.

Another L3D improvement:

Level 35 (Chocolate Drop): 76/80 -- Basically this is the same backroute as the 75/80 solution, but with some precise maneuvers and a release rate change to get the lemmings spaced optimally.  Be warned that the timing on this is incredibly tight, and a couple of assignments need to be done at precise moments.

3D Lemmings: Fun 10 has been improved to 20/20 (100%). I have uploaded a video of the solution here, and an explanation below.
