None of the teams' departure times were shown in this episode.

Teams must fly to Zürich, Switzerland. Once there, teams must take a train to Grindelwald, then make their way on foot to the Gletscherschlucht Glacier Gorge, where they would find their next clue.

"Who wants to take the scenic route?"

The team member assigned to this Roadblock would be harnessed to a canyon swing, then take a 70 mph free-fall 400 feet (120 m) down the gorge. After the swing, they must traverse further into the gorge and retrieve their next clue from underneath a net stretching across the ravine.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must ride a helicopter to Grimsel Pass, where they would find their next clue.

Choice A: Water Power
Teams must drive themselves to the Gelmerbahn funicular, where they must ride the funicular while memorizing eight signs that list water basins and the amount of water they could hold. At the end of the ride, they must run across the Gelmersee hydroelectric dam and match the eight basin names to their water capacities on a technical map to receive their next clue.

Leo & Jamal and Nicole & Victor chose this task.


Choice B: Water Down
Teams must drive themselves to the Grimsel Canyon, where they must go canyoning. They must first rappel 150 feet (46 m) down the canyon, then jump from a ledge into a glacial river, and then retrieve their next clue hanging from a rope. They must then zip line and release themselves to drop down into the river, then continue hiking out of the canyon.

Becca & Floyd, Chris & Bret, Colin & Christie, Rachel & Elissa, and Tyler & Korey chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to Michaelskirche to check in.


For coming in first place, Tyler & Korey won a spa day during the Pit Stop.

For coming in last place, Nicole & Victor will have to perform a Speed Bump at some point during the next leg of the race.
