Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity
|Number of acts||
'90s Boulevard is a stage in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity. It appears to be based on the vibrant days of the 1990s, and it takes place during the night, as opposed to '80s Boulevard. The stage also makes references to past SEGA icons and their successors, such as NiGHTS and Samba da Amigo.
The track starts off in again a location looking somewhat like Times Square, New York, as '80s Boulevard started off in such a way. There is a split that divides the street into two lanes, the one to the right leading to a ramp near a NiGHTS billboard used as a wall-route shortcut, and the other leading to a grassy area with police cars. If one chooses a Gear with grinding or air ride capabilities, then this may be the path to choose. But if a Bike or Wheel user chooses to go right before the split into two lanes, then the character will enter through an alley filled with trash cans, which can be used to replenish gravity points, the energy system in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity. The path will then lead to a 100-Ring Capsule, following a ride up a building. After the player passes the building, there is a hall in which the player can change gravity to land on it. If one chooses not to take this path, however, then the player may use the bottom route to either ride a grind rail or use the ramp and take a dash panel-filled area. The path with the grind rail leads to a billboard with an image of the game series, House of the Dead. Both paths use dash panels that lead to a ramp, which leads down to the start/finish line. If one has enough gravity points, however, then they may use the billboards to conduct a meteor burst, allowing for faster transportation.

MusicThe music that is in this track is called "Blast Town". This song is also used in '80s Boulevard, and the song uses blaring trumpets along with banging drums to show the cultural "bang" of the '90s.
- If one were to keep using gravity dive and go to the left path in the split street, then reach the NiGHTS shortcut, then one may be able to complete the stage under a much faster time.
- If the player runs out of gravity points or obtains the attack ability, then he/she may use the helicopter to ride throughout the last quarter of the track.
- One of the Attack shortcuts has the character grabbing on to a helicopter as the helicopter takes off and flies around through the stage. This may be a reference to Speed Highway from Sonic Adventure, in which Sonic, at one point of the stage, grabbed onto a helicopter and the helicopter whisks Sonic to a different location of the stage.
