Do You Believe in Magic? is the season finale of The Amazing Race: All-Stars.

Story

Route Markers

The order of departure from Peckforton Castle are as follows:

  1. Dave & Connor (4:31 am)
  2. Caroline & Jennifer (4:38 am)
  3. Brendon & Rachel (4:52 am)

Teams must fly to Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. Upon arrival, teams must get into one of three marked cars and would be chauffeured to the Mojave Desert in North Las Vegas desert. Once there, teams would simply be told to get out and dig. After unearthing a box labeled "Property of David Copperfield", they would be driven to the MGM Grand Las Vegas, where they would find their next clue.

"Do you believe in magic?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must participate in an illusion with magician David Copperfield. After opening up the box they previously dug up from the desert, retrieving the keys inside, they would be shackled to the inside of a box and once the box is closed, their partner would hand over the keys through a hole in the box. Copperfield would then escort the non-participating member to a television monitor to watch their partner attempt the challenge. After the team member inside the box finds the right key and unlocks the shackles, they must retrieve lock picks from the top of the box, after which the box would be lifted off of the ground and lit on fire. Once they have said that they are complete, the partner, under Copperfield's instruction, would set off a series of switches that would drop the box into a burning pile of wood and set off in a fiery explosion. Copperfield would then inform them that they would have to get the fire department's assistance, and their partner would appear wearing a firefighter uniform, completely unharmed, before Copperfield gives them their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to the Neon Museum Boneyard, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must take a light bulb from a nearby silver and red question mark sign in the Neon Museum Boneyard and take it with them to The Mirage, entering through the employee entrance, where they would find their next clue.

Teams would be hoisted on a window washing scaffold to one of the hotel's signs atop the tower, where they must replace all of the light bulbs in the sign's letter "I". Once they have replaced all of the bulbs, they must tell the employee how many bulbs they used, 241, in order to receive their next clue.

Teams must make their way to Maverick Helicopters in Henderson, where they would find their next clue.

"Who wants to be a UFO?"

The team member who sat out of the previous Roadblock must get in a helicopter, wearing a special futuristic jumpsuit, and then search the Las Vegas Strip for a sign, located at the Aria Resort and Casino, that would tell them the name of their drop zone and location of the Finish Line, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. After giving their pilot the correct answer, they would do a tandem 10,000-foot freefall into the race track's infield, spewing fireworks along the way, and join their partner, who would be transported there separately, to cross the Finish Line.
