Knuckles course takes place over a large forest not too dissimilar to the Green Forest level featured in SA2.

The level appears to contain multiple routes, and at times it can seem like Knuckles is lost or out of the games, but as with Sonic R these routes provide Knuckles with a shortcut which often bring him back into the race. It would also seem that during the course of the level the riders are perused by what can only be describe as a giant Centipede.

As always speed boosters are ever present, and on screen prompts allow Knuckles to pull off manoeuvres, tricks, and earn points. Such tricks included:

Indy- Rank C
Melan- Rank B

Sonics’ level resembles that of the Route 99 level from Sonic Advance 3, but with traffic that can harm the players.

Sonic can perform his usual spin attack while on his board.

Again there appears to be the choice of multiple routes, and Sonic can grind some portions of the track.
