For the Roadblock, one team member had to trade items within La Zona Libre using only a preliminary provided item as a bargaining chip. Once the team member was able to successfully barter for a clue, they could return to their partner.

This clue then led them to the Detour, which gave them a choice between consuming one bowl of seafood soup per team member (One Bowl) or identifying a local cathedral using only one provided photograph (One Shot).

Additional Tasks

  • At the Gatún Locks, teams had to locate three incoming ships from the Caribbean side of the Panama Canal and identify them from a gallery of 50 ships. Once teams successfully identified the ships, they received their next clue.
  • At the Atlantic Entrance Range Middle Lighthouse, teams had to spot a red and yellow flag hanging from a building in La Zona Libre using a provided set of binoculars and head to the flag to get their next clue.
  • At the Fort De Lesseps, teams had to stack cannonballs into a 10 x 10 pyramid. Once teams have completed stacking the cannonballs, they can check in to the Pit Stop.

The Detour gave teams a choice between completing ten orders of cafe au lait & beignets at the Café Du Monde (Serving Foods) or properly dressing up and decorating two Mardi Gras performers as instructed by the troupe leader (Serving Looks).

For the final Roadblock of the Race, one team member had to successfully perform a jazz routine to receive their next clue.

Additional Tasks

  • At South Claiborne Avenue, teams had to get on the St. Charles Streetcar Line and ride the streetcar to its other terminus near the corner of Canal & Carondelet Streets.
  • After the Roadblock, teams had to take a car and drive to the southern end of the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in Metairie.
  • At the southern end of the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in Metairie, teams encountered a locked chest. Teams had to take this chest with them and drive themselves to the northern end in Mandeville and search the area for their next clue.
  • At the northern end of the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in Mandeville, teams had to run around the area and search 500 clue boxes. Inside each clue box is a pair of sister cities, the year their partnership was established and a one-digit number. Teams had to figure out that the code for the chest corresponds to the one-digit numbers listed in the clue boxes of the correctly-paired sister cities, and their order of appearance on the race (see below).
  • After opening the chest, teams encountered a pile of 2,500 pieces of sheet music. Using the information in the clue boxes, teams had to deliver 1,986 pieces of sheet music (equivalent to the year Colón and Mandeville became sister cities) to Ruby's Roadhouse to receive their next clue.
