{{Nihongo|'''Blizzard Peaks'''|ブリザードピークス|Burizādopīkusu}} is either the fifth or sixth [[stage]] of ''[[Sonic Rush Adventure]]'', depending on the player's choice. It takes place on an ice-covered island located in the far north on [[Blaze the Cat]]'s planet and is the home of the [[Vikings]], a tribe of anthropomorphic ice bears.

'''Blizzard Peaks''' is either the fifth or sixth [[Zone]] of ''[[Sonic Rush Adventure]]'', depending on the players choice. If the player choses to go to [[Sky Babylon]] first, this will be the sixth level. It is an area of frozen islands with iceburgs and icy peaks. It is located in the far north of the sea in the[[Sol Dimension|&nbsp;Sol Dimension]].

==Description==
==Overview==
+
Blizzard Peaks is a frozen island covered entirely in snow, and is surrounded by icebergs and icy peaks. Befitting its name, the island has many (rather sharp) snowcapped black-stoned mountains whose upper peaks breach the white clouds obscuring the blue sky. Along the mountainsides, pure and often colorful ice structures form winding roads, paths, icicles, crystal clusters, symmetric blue ice pillars and spiky ice formations resembling pine trees. Additionally, the island holds an ice house village where the [[Vikings]] live.
   
As this stage takes place in the far north, and as such, the island is covered in ice and snow, with slippery mountainsides and ice patches.
+
==Story==
  +
Hoping to learn more about [[Captain Whisker]] and his crew from the [[Vikings]], who have presumably met them before, [[Sonic the Hedgehog|Sonic]], [[Miles "Tails" Prower|Tails]], [[Blaze the Cat|Blaze]] and [[Marine the Raccoon|Marine]] traveled to Blizzard Peaks. Upon arriving at the Viking village, Marine was amazed over experiencing snow for the first time. However, the heroes soon discovered the village was deserted. Suspecting the pirates, Sonic and Blaze set off on snowboards provided by Tails to find the Vikings.
   
The main gimmick of this stage features [[Sonic]] and [[Blaze]] passing through much of the level with snowboards, given to them by Tails. Other gimmicks featured are Ice sheets that will launch the player into the air by contact, half-pipes made of ice that will keep the player sliding back and forth down their entire length, blue spring wines that can launch the player into the air, and icicles that can be climbed down on.
+
The quartet eventually found the Vikings, encaged in ice. As if on cue, Whisker then emerged, gleefully proclaiming his responsibility (with aid from [[Mini & Mum]]) and summoned the [[Ghost Whale]] to do the same to the heroes. However, Sonic and Blaze destroyed it, though Whisker still got away. After Blazed thawed out the Vikings, one among them named [[Norman]] revealed that the pirates were hiding in some [[Pirates' Island|ancient ruins]] that Blaze had heard about. Sonic and his crew subsequently set off to find more clues.
   
The boss of this stage is the [[Ghost Whale]], a large mechanical whale. Sonic or Blaze will be trapped on a block of ice that the Ghost Whale charges at while distracting the player with robotic fish. When the Ghost Whale collides with the ice block, it takes a bite out of the right side, which is the cue for the player to whack the jewel on its head. This makes it open its mouth so that Sonic or Blaze can go inside of it to attack its core. When Sonic or Blaze are inside of it, it can use its internal defences, such other robots, missiles (which double as platforms), ice patches or electric currents to slow down Sonic and Blaze, before flushing them out, either after its core is hit or the 30 second time limit runs out. The time limit can be reset by destroying certain nodes inside it.

The main gimmick of Blizzard Peaks is the [[snowboard]] which the player rides for a proportion of Act 1. Other exclusive gimmicks here include thin snow-covered ice sheets that bounce the player into the air like [[Spring]]s upon contact. However, they have to be touched from above or on the side. There are also half-pipes that keep the player sliding back and forth through them down their entire length. The player can use [[Trick Action]]s when launched into the air by the half-pipes or use the [[Humming Top]]/[[Jump Step]] to skip large sections of them. In some places, there are also ice slopes that the characters will slide down on, during which all controls are disabled except for the [[boost]]ing [[Fire Boost|moves]], and will end with the characters being flung into midair. Finally, there are slippery [[icicle]]s that the characters can use to jump off of.

In Blizzard Peaks, the [[Bungee Rope]] gimmick takes the appearance of a long blue springboard, but otherwise works in the same way. Unique obstacles here include avalanches that will follow the player for a while and take away a [[1-Up|life]] if they touch a character, and ice cubes. The latter can be destroyed with a [[Spin Jump]]/[[Axel Jump]] or Super Boost/Fire Boost and are useful stepping stones.

<< Previous stage

Sonic Rush Adventure
Blizzard Peaks

Next stage >>

Blizzard Peaks (ブリザードピークス Burizādopīkusu?) is either the fifth or sixth stage of Sonic Rush Adventure, depending on the player's choice. It takes place on an ice-covered island located in the far north on Blaze the Cat's planet and is the home of the Vikings, a tribe of anthropomorphic ice bears. Aqua Material can be earned by completing this stage's Acts.

DescriptionEdit

Blizzard Peaks is a frozen island covered entirely in snow, and is surrounded by icebergs and icy peaks. Befitting its name, the island has many (rather sharp) snowcapped black-stoned mountains whose upper peaks breach the white clouds obscuring the blue sky. Along the mountainsides, pure and often colorful ice structures form winding roads, paths, icicles, crystal clusters, symmetric blue ice pillars and spiky ice formations resembling pine trees. Additionally, the island holds an ice house village where the Vikings live.

StoryEdit

Hoping to learn more about Captain Whisker and his crew from the Vikings, who have presumably met them before, Sonic, Tails, Blaze and Marine traveled to Blizzard Peaks. Upon arriving at the Viking village, Marine was amazed over experiencing snow for the first time. However, the heroes soon discovered the village was deserted. Suspecting the pirates, Sonic and Blaze set off on snowboards provided by Tails to find the Vikings.

The quartet eventually found the Vikings, encaged in ice. As if on cue, Whisker then emerged, gleefully proclaiming his responsibility (with aid from Mini & Mum) and summoned the Ghost Whale to do the same to the heroes. However, Sonic and Blaze destroyed it, though Whisker still got away. After Blazed thawed out the Vikings, one among them named Norman revealed that the pirates were hiding in some ancient ruins that Blaze had heard about. Sonic and his crew subsequently set off to find more clues.

GameplayEdit

The main gimmick of Blizzard Peaks is the snowboard which the player rides for a proportion of Act 1. Other exclusive gimmicks here include thin snow-covered ice sheets that bounce the player into the air like Springs upon contact. However, they have to be touched from above or on the side. There are also half-pipes that keep the player sliding back and forth through them down their entire length. The player can use Trick Actions when launched into the air by the half-pipes or use the Humming Top/Jump Step to skip large sections of them. In some places, there are also ice slopes that the characters will slide down on, during which all controls are disabled except for the boosting moves, and will end with the characters being flung into midair. Finally, there are slippery icicles that the characters can use to jump off of.

In Blizzard Peaks, the Bungee Rope gimmick takes the appearance of a long blue springboard, but otherwise works in the same way. Unique obstacles here include avalanches that will follow the player for a while and take away a life if they touch a character, and ice cubes. The latter can be destroyed with a Spin Jump/Axel Jump or Super Boost/Fire Boost and are useful stepping stones.

BossEdit

Main article: Ghost Whale

The boss of Blizzard Peaks is the Ghost Whale, a large mechanical whale. It can be fought after clearing Blizzard Peaks Act 2.

At the start of this battle, the player stands on an ice floe while the Ghost Whale charges at the characters. To combat this boss, the player must stun the Ghost Whale by hitting its forehead when it gets close and then jump into its mouth. The player then has to reach and hit the Ghost Whale's core by crossing an obstacle course within a time limit. The player is then sent back to the ice floe. Repeat this process two more times, and the Ghost Whale can be destroyed with a final hit.
