Route Markers

The starting line was the Oakes Garden Theatre Park in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

Teams must travel by car to the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory to search for their next clue

Teams must search the flight area of the conservatory and choose one of 9 terrariums, filled with some of nature's prettiest and most poisonous creatures. Inside each terrarium are 2 clues, one for each teams member. The clue contains a voucher for plane tickets to their next destination. The teams willing to get close to more dangerous creatures will be rewarded with an earlier flight.

Teams must fly to Kelowna, British Colombia. Once there, teams will have to search for a yellow truck at the landmark sculpture Blue Bear, across from city hall. Here they will receive a debit card loaded with money for the first leg.

Teams will have to make their way to the Lakefront Water Sports kiosk and rent a personal watercraft that they will need for their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to travel along Lake Okanagan and locate a special diving platform. Once they arrive, they'll suit up, enter the deep water dive cage, and get lowered into the dark and cold depths of Lake Okanagan. Here they must search the bottom of the lake for the mythical Ogopogo, Kelowna's own Loch Ness Monster to find their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way up into the mountains to the heart of the Myra-Bellvue Provincial Park. Once there, they will have to find the abandoned truss bridge and search for their next clue.

The team member who sat out of the previous Roadblock would have to perform this one. The team member would have to climb down a 40-foot ladder and walk across a plank only 12 inches wide. While dangling in the wind high above the rocky canyon floor, the racers must reach down and retrieve their next clue. With their clue in hand, they'll have to take a leap of faith off the plank and into the canyon below.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must find their way to the Quails' Gate Winery to check in.
