Roadblock.png Roadblock: Once teams found this flight school, they found a Roadblock clue. Who's feeling the need for speed? The chosen team member would be taken into the air in a fighter plane. Once they were airborne, they would take over the controls and had to follow the pilot's instructions to complete a 360° loop. Once they successfully pulled off the maneuver, they receive their next clue.

Detour.png Detour: Teams received their Detour information from the top of the dam, and then had to travel 4.34 miles down the Colorado River to complete their chosen task.

Bearing: Teams had to choose one of five colored cards, upon which were written different compass coordinates. Teams had to use a provided compass to follow the coordinates to three different hidden boxes, each with more coordinates. Once they had a total of four cards of the same color, they could exchange them for their next clue.

Bailing: Teams had to pick a sunken boat. They had to use only the provided tools and their hands to bail water out of the boat until it was light enough to move. Once teams had moved the boat from the bottom of the river and onto the shore, teams got their next clue.
