"I'm very happy that we can make everyone feel like extraordinary travelers and athletes while playing the game. I'm excited that kids and families will be able to experience the thrill of the race while competing and feel certain they will understand just how fun it is to actually compete in The Amazing Race," said Phil Keoghan, host of The Amazing Race.
