Mirage Saloon is a new level in Sonic Mania. This level is based on the scrapped level Desert Dazzle from the 2011 remake of Sonic CD.

This zone is based on the American deserts of the old west, presenting to the bottom mountains and other rock formations. The place also presents a cactus vegetation with varied forms.

While its inner part boils down to structures based on the wild west saloon bars, with swivel stools and piano keys. In addition to presenting areas with reminescent of the stages of casino, with the predominance of bumpers and pinball flippers. To the bottom of the interior parts you can see posters with the inscription "Wanted" of characters considered forgotten of the franchise, similar to what happens in City Escape of Sonic Generations.

Returning to its exterior, one has the presence of a new gimmick, a revolver, that depending on the aim of the player, it throws to certain distances. In addition, another gimmicks present is that of seltz that when casting water bubbles, create a new temporary path.


There are "Wanted" signs that shows the characters, Fang the Sniper, Bean the Dynamite, and Bark the Polar Bear. In addition, in the fight against Major Boss of that zone, Heavy Magician, it can become illusory versions of the characters mentioned above.
