"The Great Escape" 8/12- WESTERN REGION POWER STATION

It's actually located in Santa Clarita, CA.

Crescent & Natalie (friends/neighbors)
Lee & Matt (brothers)
Jessica & Gregg (married for 15 years)

DZ: Cooling tanks

The BT inadvertently skips Stage 1, but the GT gets CAPTURED almost immediately after leaving the DZ.

S1 (furnace ducts): Use a tool to remove a duct's two heavy pins, then enter it & use a flashlight to retrieve some electrical power cables.
FIRST $100K DESTINATION CLUE: TRAN...

S2 (turbine room): Open an electronic safe box by forming & connecting three electrical power cable lines of various lengths to a power box. At the time same they claim a goggle sledgehammer & their second key piece, they're required to memorize a hazardous diamond chart (grey, yellow, blue & red).
SECOND $100K DESTINATION CLUE: ...SFOR... (TRANSFOR...)

After this, the GT GETS CAPTURED AGAIN the moment they run straight into the BT.

S3 (cinderblock powerhouses): These are all demolishable, but the two that are easier to demolish are the ones that have a hazardous diamond chart matching the one seen inside the electronic safe box. Inside them are red valve handles.
THIRD $100K DESTINATION: ...MER 9... (TRANSFORMER 9...)

FS (filtered water tanks): After turning their valve handle, they have to start a water flower & turn a series of valves on & off until they force an orange capsule into the above tank. Once they climb a latter & dive into the cold tank to retrieve that capsule, they need to remove a key to unlock the box at the very bottom of the tank, which has a zip-line pulley.
COMPLETE $100K DESTINATION: TRANSFORMER 92278

TZ (gravity tower): Climb 10+ stories & zip-line to three cargo containers, each of which contains a Volvo S60.

The RT is VIRTUALLY ELIMINATED after being CAPTURED before reaching S3. And this is one of the series' closest finishes...














































































































































































...despite them dropping their map late in the game, the GT takes it!
