JQuery transition problems

I am working on replacing an old piece of FLASH code which is a simple click and zoom map with three stages (images).

Basically, I had this working where the old map zoomed forwards like you were falling into the map, and then the other zooms in, but there is a requirement (because this is how it USED to work) to have it so that when the new maps come in, they overwrite the old map, as opposed to blanking it out. I have included the old SWF below.

I am using the transit plugin for the animations

So I have set the map to scale in from a small state (all transitions are done using the transit plugin, but for some reason it is blanking out the div it is overwriting before it gets to full screen. It is almost as though.. even though the DIV is scaled, the container is the full size and just filled with nothing

Here is the old FLASH version we are trying to supercede.

SWF Version

I have uploaded my HTML5 'attempt' to JSFiddle

You will need to expand the RUN box to fit the whole map before you can see the first CLIKC HERE button

When you click on the CLICK HERE button, the next map scales in with a new button, click it again to get a closer map and then you are taken to another page (currently set to google). Even though it is not set to do so, the DIVS that are zooming in are blanking the one underneath.

I am sure (as this was a quick job) I have gone about this all wrong but any or all guidance to getting this final piece of the puzzle in place will be greatly appreciated

if I can help :
you should train doing it with two images, one with zoom -100000 and the other one
both should have CSS :
position: absolute

once you click on the area of the visible one, you DON'T  hide it, but just append the second one too zoom to the right place (use CSS left,top to set tehe position to clicked region) and use jQuery.animate( {width:$( window ).width(), top:0, left:0}, "slow")

Finally got there by nesting the divs, this allowed overwriting without blanking out
