Route Markers[]

Teams were flown to Los Angeles, California, and simultaneously began the next leg atop the Westin Bonaventure Hotel.
None of the teams' departure times were shown in this episode.

Teams must find one of three locked clue boxes atop three of the hotel's four towers and spot the lock combination "going up and down", leaving teams to figure out that the combination was written on a nearby elevator, to unlock their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to El Pueblo de Los Ángeles Historical Monument, where they would their next clue.

One team member must direct their partner, who was blindfolded with a luchador mask, to hit three specific piñatas: a small donkey, a taco, and a star made entirely out of paper, each containing part of their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to the artist entrance at S.I.R. Hollywood, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must become Foley artists by using provided props to add sound effects in sync to five silent video clips from previous seasons. Once the judge is satisfied with their work, they would receive their next clue.

Teams must make their way to the tennis stadium at "the home of the LA Galaxy", leaving them to figure out that this referred to Dignity Health Sports Park, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must answer 13 riddles about what they encountered since the Race was restarted by placing tennis rackets with matching images on a large board, with each team having distinct images for each specific item they encountered. Once they have answered all 13 riddles correctly, the chair umpire would direct them to the nearby soccer stadium to cross the Finish Line.
