The order of departure from Villa Trapp are as follows:

  1. Zev & Justin (3:14 am)
  2. Flight Time & Big Easy (3:25 am)
  3. Kent & Vyxsin (3:39 am)
  4. Kisha & Jen (3:49 am)
  5. Jet & Cord (3:50 am)
  6. Gary & Mallory (4:36 am)

Teams must travel by train to Feldkirch. Once their, teams must cross the Austrian-Liechtensteiner border to Schaanwald, Liechtenstein, where they will find their next clue.

At Schaanwald border crossing, Gary & Mallory would receive their clue for their Speed Bump.

Gary & Mallory have prepare the right mixture of gasoline and oil to power their VéloSoleX motorized bicycle for the Roadblock. One team member has to measure 25 parts gasoline to 1 part of oil, and figure out that 2 liters of gasoline would fulfill the mixture ratio, before they are allowed to continue.

The team member assigned to perform the Roadblock would have to use an odometer and a VéloSoleX to measure the entire length of the country of Liechtenstein, riding from Schaanwald to Balzers. At the end, they will meet up with former Winter Olympics alpine ski racer Marco Büchel and give him the distance that they traveled, 22 km, written on the back of a postcard. If they are correct, Büchel would direct the racers to Gutenberg Castle where they will meet up with their teammate and read the next clue. If they are incorrect, they would have to travel back to Schaanwald and start over.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must travel by bus and train to Zermatt, Switzerland. Once teams are at the Zermatt railway station, they will find their next clue.

Choice A: Cheese
Teams would have to travel to the Restaurant Walliserkanne Zermatt where they have to finish an entire pot of cheese fondue. Once the pot is empty, the restaurateur will give them an empty fondue pot with the name of the next location printed on the inside.

Only Zev & Justin chose this task.

Choice B: Wheeze
Teams would have to dress up as bellhops and then pick up pieces of luggage from the Zermatt railway station. Then, using a luggage cart, they have to deliver the suitcases to different hotels throughout Zermatt where they will receive receipt tags for each piece of luggage. Once they have a total of 20 receipt tags from at least five different hotels, they can trade them in to the head porter for their next clue.

Flight Time & Big Easy, Gary & Mallory, Jet & Cord, Kent & Vyxsin, and Kisha & Jen chose this task.

Teams must travel on foot or by taxi to Hinterdorf near the Inderbinen-Brunnen to find their next clue.

At Hinterdorf, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team, with two slots available. Flight Time & Big Easy used the first slot of the U-Turn on Jet & Cord. The second slot went unused.

Since Jet & Cord completed the Wheeze Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Cheese Detour before continuing.

Teams must travel by electric taxi to Bergrestaurant-Moos to check in.

For coming in first place, Zev & Justin won a trip for two to Curaçao, provided by Travelocity.
