In the final Roadblock of the race, one team member participated in a game of horseshoes. Each player had to pitch horseshoes so that three of them hit the target spire. In the Switchback and the final task of the race, teams completed a "monumental" challenge: given 24 pictures of monuments and statues, they had to identify the 9 that had been featured on the race. When they obtained the correct answer (GALVESTON), they then had to figure out the location of the finsh line at Galveston's most famous landmark: the Moody Gardens.
 
 
'''Additional Tasks'''
 
*At Minute Maid Park, teams had to search through the five major venues of Houston's Theater District ([http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alley_Theatre Alley Theatre], [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hobby_Center_for_the_Performing_Arts Hobby Center for the Performing Arts], [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesse_H._Jones_Hall_for_the_Performing_Arts Jesse H. Jones Hall for the Performing Arts], [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayou_Place Bayou Place], and Wortham Theater Center) to obtain puzzle pieces. They then had to piece their puzzle together at the venue of the only opera company in the U.S. to win a Grammy, a Tony, and an Emmy (the Houston Opera Company) - Wortham Theater Center. Their puzzle would reveal their next destination, the Reliant Astrodome.
 
 
*After the Roadblock, teams were told to find Mission Control, a reference to the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center. Once there, they went to a virtual simulation room, where they had to successfully recreate the famed landing of the Eagle when Apollo 11 first arrived at the moon in order to receive their next clue from the astronaut.
 
*Upon completing the virtual simulation task, teams were given an image of the USS Texas, their next destination. There, the teams were then told to make their way on foot to where the race began: the San Jacinto Monument.
