"[6] Traveling from Laklouk to Tannourine one passes the village of Balaa, and the "Three Bridges Chasm" (in French "Gouffre des Trois Ponts") is a five-minute journey into the valley below where one sees three natural bridges, rising one above the other and overhanging a chasm descending into Mount Lebanon. During the spring melt, a 90–100-metre (300–330 ft) cascade falls behind the three bridges and then down into the 250-metre (820 ft) chasm. Sana'a.

The seven teams had to navigate a series of challenges that included rowing a rubber dinghy out to a yacht, using a watch to find the combination for a locked briefcase, assembling a hookah and measuring out $500,000 in gold pieces. The final challenge, of course was taking a very wet “leap of faith” down a six-story water slide found at the über luxurious Dubai resort: the Atlantis Resort in Dubai.
