In-game description

Astral Babylon is a course which is unlocked after defeating Master Core: ABIS in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity and is the Heroes' section of Babylon Garden. The layout is rather simple as there are only four turns but is rather hard. One of the missions has Sonic racing against the Babylon Rogues.

Knuckles in Astral Babylon.

The race takes place in the inside of the spaceship form of Babylon Garden. The course has only four turns. The player can hit panels to open new items, trick ramps or shortcuts such as a catapult ramp for Gears capable of Air Riding , a rail for Skates and Boards with Grind , Babylon statues to smash for Bike and Wheel users and a series of springs for characters in attack/on-foot mode.

Just before each sharp turn the rider may attempt to jump off the edge and use Gravity Control to access the floating wall as a wall route. The player can use Gravity Control to break through the glass wall and go through the stage faster. As the player progresses through the course, the sides of the course will shatter, allowing the player to use Gravity Control to cross over the gap as a shortcut. Odd objects appear in the sky, possibly ancient Babylonian satellites or planes. Digital logos of Babylon and lights appear near the start of the course.
