Paleo Tarpits is the third level in Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice. Devoid of civilization, this is a prehistoric island with the earthly remnants of mighty dinosaurs and numerous tar pits. The by-products from Dr. Eggman's mining operations on Ragna Rock have messed up the island's environment.

Adventure levels

Primeval Jungle

Primeval Jungle is the first adventure level, which is unlocked the first time the player reaches Paleo Tarpits.

At the beginning, go right until the characters enter the background and go left from there. Upon reentering the foreground, go right to arrive at a split in the path right after using a Bounce Pad. Going left here leads to a loop past Primordial Wilderness. If the player takes the upward or the right path here instead, keep taking the rightward paths until the characters enter the background. Along the way, there will be small looping detours. Go left from here to reach the fissure.

Requirement Reward
Reach goal in 01:40 min. Ragnium

Jungle Labyrinth

Jungle Labyrinth is the second adventure level, which is unlocked after clearing Primeval Jungle.

First, start out by going right on the path. After the first cannon, the player can either go left to reach a looping path, or take the right path. Continuing down the latter path will take the player into the background, where they must go right again to reenter the foreground. Go again rightward from there to get sent up by a Bounce Pad to a split in the path on a bridge. Going left here leads to a loop past Sinkhole while going right here will eventually take the player back into the background where the fissure is.

Requirement Reward
Reach goal in 01:40 min. Ragnium

Tarpit Depths

Tarpit Depths is the third adventure level, which is unlocked after clearing Mechanized Meltdown.

At the start, follow the path on the right to enter the background and follow the left path there to reenter the foreground. From there, take the right path. Just after the first Water Spout after the second Checkpoint, there is a drop leading to a loop past Sunken Gulch. Further ahead, at the third Checkpoint, there is an upward path leading to another loop. If the player takes the lower route here instead, they will arrive at the fourth Checkpoint; going left here leads to a new loop. Going right here instead will take the player to another split in the path, where the left path leads to a new loop while the right path leads into the background, where the fissure can be found on the right.

Requirement Reward
Reach goal in 02:20 min. Ragnium

Prehistoric Outback

Prehistoric Outback is the fourth adventure level, which is unlocked after clearing Tarpit Depths.

At the start, follow the path on the right to enter the background. From there, stick to the rightward paths to reenter the foreground. From there, follow any rightward path to eventually return to the background. After scaling the first ledge after the incoming Checkpoint, the player can either go straight ahead or follow the lower paths for a trip past Chasm Lair. Either way, they will end up on a path leading directly to the fissure.

Requirement Reward
Reach goal in 03:00 min. Ragnium
