Next stage >>

Route 280 is the tenth stage in the Dark storyline in Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle. The player controls Rouge, in her white kart.


After finding out that Tails was awarded a Chaos Emerald, Rouge went to the highway to track him down.


Route 280 is the Dark Story equivalent to Route 101, except it has gaps, meaning that if Rouge falls off the course, the player will have to start again from the beginning and more turns in the road and much less Ringsballoons and checkpoints.

The control scheme in this stage is the same as in Kart Race Mode.


Collect 100 Rings

Along the way, hit all the balloons that appears on the path. Each of these objects contains Super Ring holding between ten to forty Rings. Avoid any catastrophic mistakes, and the mission should be fine.

Don't Hit Other Cars

This may sound easy, but if the player is not careful, this mission can be extremely frustrating. Just take your time and do not be afraid to hit the brakes, even if the goal is to score an A Rank. Three minutes and a half are plenty of time.

Don't Hit the Walls

Everything from the earlier mission applies here. Additionally, do not try to power slide. Instead, take the turns slowly, and only use the speed boost on straight stretches.

Clear Hard Mode

In Hard Mode, the number of Cars on the road has increased.


  • Route 280 is named after Interstate 280, in the San Francisco Bay area of California.
