White Park Zone is the second Zone of Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II. After making it through Sylvania Castle Zone, Sonic and Tails traverse a Christmas-themed amusement park built atop a snowy mountain.

Overview

Act 1 is set in the outskirts of the amusement park where Sonic's snowboarding antics from IceCap Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 make a brief return. The slopes are prone to lethal avalanches that will chase the player(s), while the caverns feature snowballs that must be pushed in order to proceed, building up snow and getting bigger as they roll, though some snowballs are also obstacles that will roll into the player(s) and cause damage. Thick mounds of snow will require the player(s) to use the Rolling Combo to burrow through.

The roller coaster in the distance of Act 1 becomes the forefront of Act 2, in which the player(s) will be running along the illuminated tracks at high speed, though the track itself can be hazardous as pieces of it are commonly shifting back and forth in the Act and can potentially crush the player(s). They will also switch between the background and foreground often using springs to take different routes. The music for this Act contains a segment of Twinkle Park's secondary music, "Pleasure Castle".

Act 3 takes the player(s) out of the park and through a submerged ice cave. Most of the underground sections are underwater, so keeping Sonic and Tails' air supply topped up with air bubbles is very important. Throughout the Act, Steelions will freeze the water around them, creating obstacles and blocking off paths, often forcing the player(s) to take another path. Near the end of the Act, the player(s) will need to use the Submarine Combo to get through a chamber as quickly as possible, because the Steelions will block them from the exit and force a restart.
