|Fifth level, Sonic Heroes|
|Level theme: carnival/casino|
|← Power Plant | BINGO Highway →|
Casino Park is the fifth level of Sonic Heroes. A textbook 3D example of the casino trope, Casino Park features giant roulette wheels, rotating dice platforms, blackjack-tiled floors, and numerous pinball tables for the acquisition of rings. Even the Egg Pawns are gambling-themed, remodeled as Casino Pawns.
Team Sonic arrive in Casino Park after an embarrassing Team Battle encounter when Amy found Sonic in Power Plant. Despite Tails' warning that they have only 24 hours before "Eggman's" deadline expires. The hedgehog insists that there's time enough to have some fun in the casino. Team Dark ventures into the facility because Omega detects Eggman, while the Chaotix is still being put through their paces by the mysterious client, having been told to collect rings as "a test of luck". Finally, Team Rose continues to chase after Sonic; Cream wisely refrains from telling Amy that the Blue Blur was obviously running away from her.
The normal / extra missions, along with their respective rank requirements, are:
|Team Sonic||40,000||36,000||32,000||28,000||<28,000||Dash through the giant theme park!|
|Team Dark||50,000||45,000||40,000||30,000||<30,000||Blast through the giant theme park!|
|Team Rose||35,000||30,000||25,000||20,000||<20,000||Play the giant pinball tables!|
|Team Chaotix||32,000||30,000||26,000||22,000||<22,000||Win 200 rings!|
|Team Sonic||45,000||40,000||35,000||30,000||<30,000||Get to the Goal Ring within 5 minutes!|
|Team Dark||10:00||10:30||11:00||12:00||>12:00||Defeat 100 enemies!|
|Team Rose||4:00||6:00||8:00||10:00||>10:00||Collect 200 rings!|
|Team Chaotix||14,000||12,000||10,000||8,000||<8,000||Win 500 rings!|
Several objects in Casino Park are similar to those used in much earlier casino-themed zones. The bumpers that you bounce off of in the pinball tables make the same noise as the ones heard in Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Sonic the Hedgehog 3. There are also colored panels that will change color and disappear after being hit three times much like Sonic the Hedgehog 2. The slot machines are some what reminiscent of the rotating maze bonus stage in Sonic & Knuckles, in which Eggman symbols also need to be avoided. Finally, Amy comments on how the level reminds her of Casinopolis from Sonic Adventure.
