Race amid cars and rails in the lawless city born of the black hole's wake.
— In-game description
'80s Boulevard is an unlockable track in . It takes place in a 1980's busy, bustling city covered in references to famous Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity Sega franchises during that period and their successors.
The track starts in a street whose design is similar to
Times Square, located in New York. As the player progresses throughout the stage, the track then branches into a four-way crossing crowded with buses (which can be used to create Meteor Burst while using Gravity Dive). It then transitions to a subway station where one can either take the opportunity to ride on top of a subway train or take the stairs, where rails are located. This area can be an advantage for speed characters.

References to Sega games
There are many references to recent and old Sega games and even Sega itself, which include:
Samba da Amigo
Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg
Sonic the Hedgehog
Other Sega characters and games during that period
The track also includes references to consoles themselves, which include:
If one happens to run out of gravity points while on top of the moving subway train, the train moves, but the player does not.
Above the giant claw machine, after the four-way intersection, you can find Sonic Channel artwork of Sonic.
The underground subway is called "Sonic Station" if you look at the signs in the subway tunnel.
One of the missions has Knuckles chasing after a runaway taxi cab. This is most likely a reference to Crazy Taxi.
A hundred Ring Capsule is located on the wall running section, after the first ramp.
In a certain alley (a path reachable using a Bike or Wheel Gear), you can find several posters showing Dr. Eggman and Princess Elise from .
