Boss Jump[edit | edit source]

The Boss Jump will appear at the Boss Jump node. The player will have to successfully jump the Boss Jump (or skip it by going under the bridge) and reach the end point, in order to progress to the Forest.

There are 3 tricks associated with this Boss Jump:

  • Bridge Jump (300 points), which is attained if you successfully jump the bridge,
  • Over the Train (400 points), which is attained if the train is passing underneath when you jump the bridge (and you will unlock the The training was worth it achievement),
  • Chicken (1 point), which is attained if you avoid the ramp and go underneath the bridge, and you will obtain the Chicken Mask if you do not already have it.

Construction Site[edit | edit source]

The Construction Site is a Bonus World in the Highlands that features a static construction yard. In this node, the bonus objective is always to reach the top, but the node can be ended by driving through the typical finish gate.

The construction site is indicated on the map by a star, and is generally found on the outer edge of the map, opposite to the Boss Jump node, with some exceptions.

The construction site has a static, fixed seed of 1001.
