Crowns On, Crowns Off – Guests collect their crowns at the event. At the designated time and location, participants will take part in a Heads or Tails-style game. A series of coin flips determine who moves forward and who is eliminated depending on how the coin lands ( “Heads” > Crowns on; “Tails” > Crowns off).

The last person standing takes home the grand prize – a 7 Night-stay for 2 people at the Marina Fiesta in Cabo San Lucas. (airfare not included)
