From there they must drive themselves to the Star Carnival, a 24/7 carnival held in the middle of the Mushroom Kingdom. Once there, they must find the Mini-Game tent where they'll find their next clue.

Jessica: "Let's go."

Stephany & Jessica: 2nd to Depart 6:27

Stephany: "Ooh, look. We're going to a carnival."

Jessica: "Let's go."


At the airport, Sarah & Jessica walked in and walked up to the nearest desk.

At the airport, all the teams now had tickets for the 7:00 flight. But Nick & Jack snuck away from the group to find an internet cafe. Nick began typing something into the computer.

Jack: "Remind me what we're doing again?"

Nick: "Looking for a better flight."

Jack: "But the earliest is 7:00?"

Nick: "Yeah but look at the ticket. We don't get in untill 11:00."

Jack looked at his ticket, then Nick's eyes widened.

Nick: "Yes!"

Jack: "What?"

Nick: "There's another plane leaving at 7:30. It's a direct flight so it will get there at 10:00."

Jack: "Awsome. Let's go exchange these tickets."

The two run out of the cafe and race to the ticket counter. But unaware, they are spotted by the twins.

Sarah: "Hey, wasn't that just Nick & Jack?"

Jessica: "Where are they going?"

The two descided to follow them. Jack heard footsteps, so the girls jumped into two nearby garbage cans. This was when Alex & Ritchie walked in.

Alex: "Hey guys, where are you going."

Jack: "We found a better flight. Come on."

Jack: "I feel Alex & Ritchie are the most trustworthy here. Not to mention, if we take them to the finals there's no dought we can beat them. And if we don't, I wouldn't mind seeing them win the million. It's a win win situation."

As the four ran off, the Jessica came out of her can.

Jessica: "So they found an earlier flight huh. We've gottat get that Sarah. Sarah?"

Sarah then came out. While Jess's can was empty, Sarah happened to jump into one filled to the brim with garbage.

Sarah: "NOT one word! Follow them!"

The twins jumped out and ran after the teams.


At the ticket counter, Nick & Jack ran in followed by Alex & Ritchie.

Nick: "Can we exchange 4 tickets for the 7:30 flight to the Star Carnival please."

Jinx: "Sure thing."

Jinx then took their tickets and handed them the new one for the later flight.

Nick & Jack: First on 7:30 flight

Alex & Ritchie: Second on 7:30 flight

Alex: "Awsome, thanks a lot guys."

Nick: "No problem."

As soon as they left, the twins ran up.

Sarah: "Two tickets for the same flight they just got please."

Jinx printed them the tickets and the twins ran off.

Sarah & Jessica: Third on 7:30 flight

Nick & Jack and Alex & Ritchie were now seated confortably on the plane when the twins walked on, causing all of them to gain a suprised look.

Nick: "What the heck are you two doing here?"

Jessica: "You really think you can sneak past us."

The Star Carnival was a place filled with bright colors and lots of music. At the front of the carnival as a medium sized tent with the word "Mini-Game Arcade" writen in lights above the entrence. Next to the entrence was the clue box. The first team parked their cars and ran to the tent.

rip

Jack: "Detour, are you ready to Play or redy to Search."

A detour is a choice between two tasks, each with their own pros and cons. Their choice, Play or Search.

In play, the teams must enter the Mini-Game Arcade where they will be given a bag of tokens. They must use all the tokens to win atleast 15 minigames collectivly. If they run out of tokens, they must wait 5 minuets untill they can start over. This task is relativly simple, but it could take some time.

In search, the teams will be given a picture of a carnival worker with their clue. They must then search the entire carnival and find the worker who matches their picture exactly. If they match the photo with the face, the carnival worker will give them their clue. This task has potential to be finished quickly, buy finding one face is a sea of workers could be challenging.

Nick: "I say we go for the mini-games."

Jack: "Good call."

As they run in, the next team enter the carnival.

Alex & Ritchie: Currently in 2nd

Alex: "Detour, are you read to Play or Search."

Ritchie: "The Search does seem to be quicker."

Alex: "Ok."

Alex pulls out a picture of a blue shuy guy with a crown on his head.

Alex: "Let's get looking."

Sarah & Jessica: Currently in 3rd

Sarah: "Mini-Games does seem to be easier."

Jessica: "Fine by me."


After a few minuets, all 3 teams are still completing their detours. At the mini-game tent, Jack was scoring high on a game.

Nick: "How many you got dude?"

Jack: "I'm at 6."

Nick: "7, two more and we're done."

Jack: "Good cuz we're running out of tokens."

Sarah was now trying a game of ski ball. She tosses the ball, only to have it fall in the 0 hole.

Sarah: "Damn it!"

Sarah throughs the next ball at the machine, causing it to bounce back and hit her in the face.

Sarah: "Ow!"

Jessica: "Be calm, you're not gunna win every game."

Sarah: "This is the 15th time I've lost against this thing. Give me another token."

Jessica reached in, only to find their bag empty.

Jessica: "Uh oh."

Sarah: "Don't tell me we used up all our tokens."

Jessica: "Afraid so."

Sarah: "Damn it!"

The twins went to sit on a bench.


Outside, Alex & Ritchie were still looking for the matching Shy Guy.

Alex: "Did you find him yet honey?"

Ritchie: "Not yet."

Ritchie then stood on a box and looked through the crowd. He then saw a blue Shy Guy working a popcorn stand. Ritchie checked the picture, and sure enough it matched.

Ritchie: "There he is!"

Ritchie ran over to the Shy Guy with his wife behind him.

Ritchie: "Excuse me, but is this you."

Shy Guy: "It most certainly is."

The Shy Guy took the picture and gave Ritchie the clue in retern.

Shy Guy: "Good luck."

Ritchie: "Thanks."

Alex: "Great job honey, what's it say?"

rip

Ritchie: "Make your way to the Shy Guy Express Train Station."

Teams must now make their way to the Shy Guy Express Train Station, located on the other side of the park. This is the entrance to one of the Mario Party boards and where they'll find their next clue.

Ritchie: "Warning U-Turn ahead."

Alex: "U-Turen? Oh boy."


At the Mini-Game Arcade, Sarah & Jessica were still waiting out their 5 minuets when they heard Jack cheering.

Jack: "YES! That's 15!"

The Mii running the tent approached them and handed them their clue.

Nick & Jack: Currently in 2nd

Nick: "Go to the Shy Guy Express Train Station."

Jack: "Warning, U-Turn ahead. Just what we've been waiting for."

As they left, Jess looked over to her sister.

Jessica: "Ya hear that?"

Sarah: "What?"

Jessica: "There heading to a U-Turn."

Sarah: "Yup, we're screwed."


Alex & Ritchie: Currently in 1st

Alex and Ritchie were looking around the park for the station.

Alex: "Now where could this be?"

Ritchie: "Hey look."

They saw Nick & Jack running twards them.

Alex: "Hey guys."

Jack: "Hey, you find it yet?"

Ritchie: "No, but it can't be too far.


Back at the mini-game tent, Sarah & Jessica were given another bag of tokens.

Jessica: "Ok, now remember."

Sarah: "I know, don't waste all the tokens on one machine."


At the train station, a giant train was parked at the tracks with a clue box in front and a U-Turn right next to it. The top two teams were now in view.

Jack: "Look there it is."

Alex: "Great."

They both ran up to the U-Turn. Alex & Ritchie were up first.

Alex: "We choose not to U-Turn."

She grabbed a clue out of the box.

rip

Alex: "Roadblock, who likes coffee."

A roadblock is a task only one member may complete, and each member may only do up to 6 roadblocks. For this roadblock, the chosen team member must go to the nearby coffee stand and pick up a tray of freshly brewed coffee. They must then enter the train and serve coffee to the Shy Guy workers and passengers. If they can sell all 10 cups, they can return the tray to the coffee stand and receive their next clue.

Alex: "I guess I'm up."

Nick & Jack stepped up to the U-Turn.

Jack: "This is the perfect time to get the twins."

Nick: "Now wait a second."

Jack: "What?"

Nick: "If we U-Turn the twins, the worst they'll probably get is 3rd. You have to remember we still have about half an hour untill the other flight comes."

Jack: "So who do we U-Turn?"

Nick: "I say Stephany & Jessica, they're the next biggest threats and they're on the second flight."

Jack: "Fair enough."

Jack put up Stephany & Jessica's picture and then put their picture in the "Curtesy of" box. They then rip open the clue.

Nick: "Roadblock, I'll take it."

Nick followed the way Alex left as Jack went to sit on a bench with Ritchie.


Sarah & Jessica: Currently in 3rd

Sarah had finally won at the Ski Ball machine.

Sarah: "YES! FINALLY!"

The Mii hands them their next clue.

Jessica: "Yup, there's a U-Turn.


Alex (Ritchie's partner)

Alex was now walking insed the train, looking for anyone to sell to.

Alex: "Coffee, anybody like a cup of coffee?"

Bandit: "I'll take one."

Alex handed off the cup, but the bandit took the whole tray and ran away.

Alex: "Hey! You get back here!"

She chased after the bandit as Nick entered the train.


Sarah & Jessica then ran up to the station. They were suprised to see that Stephany & Jessica were U-Turned.

Sarah: "Wow."

Jessica: "I thaught for sure our picture would be up there. Who knows, mabey we're not seen as big of threats as I thaught.

Jessica: "Roadblock, who likes coffee?"

Sarah: "Me."

Sarah red the instructions and ran off to the Coffee Stand.

Jessica: "Hey what time do the others arrive?"

Ritchie looked at his watch.

Ritchie: "I'd say about now.


Flight 1

The flight lands and all 3 teams rush off.

Amanda: "Knowing that three teams weren't on the flight really scared all of us. There's a huge possibility they got a better flight, meaning one of the three of us are most likely going.


Sarah (Jessica's partner)

Sarah was now in the kitchen where two Shy Guys were cooking on frying pans.

Sarah: "Hey, would you like some coffee."

Shy Guy 1: "Oh, sure thing thanks."

Sarah: "No pro..."

Before Sarah could finish, the air duct above here star spewing out smoke. In all the suction, she was pulled up out of the car. The Shy Guy looked around, and nochelantly went back to cooking.

Shy Guy 2: "You know there's no food in these pans, right?"


It then shows outside the train where Sarah was flung up and landed on the ground face first.

Sarah: "UNIVERSE, WHY DO YOU HATE ME!!!"

It was now that Nick walked out of the train.

Nick: "Finished."

Jack: "Great job dude."

Nick & Jack: Currently in 1st

Nick returned the tray and got his clue.
