Red Gate Bay is a hard-difficulty track based in the City, and contains grind rails, multiple of corkscrews, and a large number of obstacles.
In Red Gate Bay, the playable characters are stuck running down the level's road and can only move left and right between the road's four lanes (akin to the Quick Step). While running, the player can pick up powerups from Item Boxes and utilize the gimmicks native to this track.
Red Gate Bay has many environmental obstacles which the player can either jump over, roll under or move around. Running into one of these obstacles will result in the player taking damage and lose some of their Rings. Falling into bottomless pits on the other hand forces the player to restart from an earlier point on the track.
The racers begin on a long stretch of road that has multiple hurdles placed in their path, followed by a corkscrew loop that lies ahead. The racers will then go through a Grind Rail section before entering a stretch of track with a large number of obstacles placed on it, several of which have Item Boxes placed directly in front of or behind them.
The path splits ahead, with the left side providing fewer obstacles but no Dash Pads, and the right side having several pillars that must be stepped around or slid under, and more Dash Pads to compensate. Beyond this lies a large section of track with more obstacles. The racers will then enter another Grind Rail section before proceeding to an area with several Dash Panels placed directly behind pillars, then one final Grind Rail section that goes into the last stretch of the track.
The end of the track contains a large number of pillars (some of which have Dash Panels placed behind them), and the finish line lies directly ahead.
