Route Markers[]

The order of departure from De Onderneming Windmill in Vierhuizen are as follows:

  1. Sam & Dan (9:33 pm)
  2. Meghan & Cheyne (9:43 pm)
  3. Flight Time & Big Easy (10:32 pm)
  4. Gary & Matt (11:08 pm)
  5. Brian & Ericka (1:38 am)

Teams must fly to Stockholm, Sweden. Upon arrival, teams must take a train, then a ferry to Djurgården. Once there, teams must locate the Fritt Fall at Tivoli Gröna Lund amusement park, where they would find their next clue.

One team member must ride the Fritt Fall in order to spot an arrow pointing toward the direction of their next clue. They would only have 15 seconds to spot the arrow from the ride before it plummets 24 stories in 3 seconds. If they fail to spot the arrow, they must ride the Fritt Fall again.

Teams must play ring toss, attempting to land one ring on a large gnome hat. Once they have landed a ring on a hat with a Travelocity roaming gnome underneath, their next clue would be written under the gnome's base. Teams must then carry the gnome for the remainder of the leg.

Choice A: Nobel Dynamite
Teams must fill sandbags to create a protective bunker for themselves in a rock quarry. Once they are protected, they would set off an explosion with dynamite, which would unearth a metal box containing their next clue.

All teams chose this task.

Choice B: Viking Alphabet
Teams must decode a message written in Elder Futhark on a runestone, using smaller stones with both runes and letters. Once they have decoded the message, "Find Trygve the Strong Viking", they must locate the Viking to receive their next clue.

None of the teams chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to Bögs Gård Farm, where they would find their next clue.

"Who thinks they can spot a needle in a haystack?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must unroll bales of hay to find one of only seven flags hidden inside 186 bales. Once they have found a flag, they and their partner may proceed to the nearby Pit Stop.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

For coming in first place, Flight Time & Big Easy won trip for two to the Turks and Caicos Islands, provided by Travelocity.

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