Teams must fly to Dubrovnik, Croatia. Upon arrival, team travel by taxi to the Fort of St. Lawrence to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to find one of eight stones correctly identified out of 150 stones and fit it into the rock wall at the fort being rebuilt after the Croatian War of Independence. Once it is completely built, the stonemason would hand them their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to the fort's roof and ride a zipline down to Fort Bokar to receive their next clue.

Choice A: Short & Long
Teams would have to rappel down the walls of Fort Bokar and then scale it again on a rope ladder. Then, they had to make their way on foot a longer distance through the confusing old quarter streets to find their next clue.

Kynt & Vyxsin and TK & Rachel chose this task.

Choice B: Long & Short
Teams have to tandem zipline from the fort and then swim to the floating platforms where they must row a fishing boat around the city walls to a flagged area and then make their way on foot a shorter distance through the streets to find their next clue.

Azaria & Hendekea, Nathan & Jennifer, Nicolas & Donald, and Ron & Christina chose this task.

Teams must travel by taxi to Stone Cross in Fort Imperial to check in.

For coming in first, Ron & Christina won a 12.5 foot catamaran for each racer.
