Overview:

To escape the island, the CyberSquad must reach one of the portals before sunset that Motherboard has placed on the island at random. The group uses a map to determine the distance to each portal and accounts for facts such as steep climbs and bridges being down. The kids and Digit decide to take the rapids to the bay, where they successfully reach the portal.
