The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to sign up for one of six helicopter flights, each holding two teams. They would then perform a tandem skydive from a height of 10,000 ft. Once at the bottom safely, teams will receive their next clue.

Teams must travel to Eden Beach by water taxi in Motu Piti A'au where they will search the area for a clue box containing their next clue.

The team member who sat out of the previous Roadblock would have perform this one. The team member would have to search beneath 400 sand castles. Every sand castle that is destroyed, team members would have to properly rebuild before moving onto the next one. Once they have found the correct sandcastle they will find their next clue.

Katie, Jennifer, and Daniel all decided to quit the Roadblock, all exhausted and unable to find their clue, and take the four hour penalty.
