The Fifth Leg of the Race

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the fifth leg of the Amazing Mutant Race 3. Last week we saw our eight teams race towards the Grand Canyon where they had to jump across the great divide in an Evel Kenivel style Sky-Cycle. Once done, they then hurried to Racoon City, Nevada where they had to choose between either being a curing a zombie infested complex or destroying the structure. After completing their tasks, the teams then sped to the Pit Stop at the Racoon City Police Station where they were greeted by myself and bevy of warrior women. Sweeping in ahead of their competitors, Gyrobo and Gambit won this leg of the race.

As the winners, they get to choose one other team to Yield. A Yield forces that team to delay their start time by one hour. However, since Gyrobo’s camera man was destroyed, a violation of the rule of the Race, his team’s start time is delayed by half an hour.

The last team to arrive was AOC and Angel, barely losing out to Jon and Nightcrawler. However, as this leg of the race was the one and only non-elimination round, they are safe for this week. As a penalty, any monies they have left over from the starts of the previous legs will be confiscated and they will receive no stipend for this leg. If they want to eat or travel, they will be on their own on how to do it.

This leg of the race starts at the Racoon City Police Station in Nevada. Teams must make their way by any way they like to Anaheim, California. The teams must race to the Disneyland amusement park where they will face their Roadblock. A Roadblock is a challenge only one member of a team may perform.

Ever been to a galaxy far, far away? One of the most popular rides at Disneyland is Star Tours. One player from each team must ride Star Tours paying close attention so that they catch the hidden message that R2-D2 will flash briefly on the screen.


The hidden message will reveal the highest point at the Disneyland theme park. The teams must then race there where they will find the Detour for this leg. A Detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons. Teams must successfully complete one of the tasks described on the clue in order to receive their next clue. In this Detour, the teams must choose between Goofy or Silly.

In Goofy, the teams must dress up as their favorite Disney characters, or at least whichever ones they can tolerate. Once in costume, the racers must then entertain the park goers. Each team must receive at least four Mickeys out of five from ten different park patrons. Mickeys are the rating system on the performance review cards that will be distributed to the park guests. In the event that a team is unable to obtain the necessary positive reviews, they must then go and perform the Silly challenge.

In Silly, the teams must make their way to the It’s A Small World ride. The racers must stay on the ride for ten complete times. The players will take a short IQ test before and after the ride. Their average score must not drop more than 20% or they will have to do the Goofy challenge.

Once the Detour is successfully completed, the teams must then make their way to the Pit Stop for this leg at the Disneyland Resort Hotel lobby. As always, the last team to arrive will be eliminated.

I will use that half-hour wait to pray that Kayless guides AMOK swiftly to the glorious battlefields of Sto-Vo-Kor.

Dizz-nee land. Oh great I have to go to that crappy kids camp south of Hobart. I hate going to Tasmania. Its the redneck capital of Australia. Thank God its not attached to the rest of Austalia.

Oh.... Dinsey Land. Well thats different Walt was a disciple of the Red Skull. It was all a big NAZI plot to take over the US by converting the children. Unfortunately the CIA gave Walt a choice get rich or die. I don't hate him. We'd all go for the money like that if we had the choice.

That Walt we still miss him at the Evil Genius conventions.
