Paradise Dome

The Paradise Dome is a location that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. It was a new entertainment attraction owned by Rhino Neil (secretly Doctor Robotnik in disguise).


The inside of the building appeared to be a tropical beach, even though outside the temperature was freezing. This was because the Paradise Dome was equipped with holographic projectors, that made realistic "solid light" holograms with which people could relax.


Rhino Neil allowed the Freedom Fighters to use the Dome for a vacation, and they all accepted apart from Sonic. Once the others were inside, Robotnik used the holographic projectors to create indestructible, solid light EggRobos that surrounded the Freedom Fighters. Luckily, Sonic discovered the deception, and managed to rescue his friends by smashing through the wall of the building. In so doing he broke the circuits of the projectors, and all of the solid light holograms (including the Badniks) disappeared.[1]
