The Amazing Race visits The Amazing Space
Discovery Jet featured on the Amazing Race
During the 22nd season of The Amazing Race, nine two-person teams - ranging from a couple of country and western singers to a pair of roller derby moms - visited New Zealand, heading south to the picturesque Methven region.
During the New Zealand leg of the race, the teams had to make their way from the garden city of Christchurch to the banks of the Rakaia River for 12 hours of adventure, exhilaration, exhaustion and New Zealand culture. The race immediately got contestants’ adrenaline pumping by whizzing up the Rakaia River in a jet boat to their first challenge on Discovery Jet. Follow the route of the Amazing Race on the Discovery Jet, combining the excitement of high speeds with breathtaking views of the glacial fed Rakaia Gorge and Southern Alps.
