Gameplay Strategies[]

Racers won't use Paradise Avenue often during Race events except when zooming to the Coastguard HQ in the North-East.
Players in Stunt Run mode will be able to use the Split Ramp between Root Avenue and 7th Street to easily reach the Paradise Billboard south of the partly accessible car park. Other than that, drivers won't find much on Paradise Avenue itself. They will have to drop down on 7th Street to hit the Super Jump ramp or veer into another road for other stunt opportunities.
This road is not recommended for Road Rage events due to the lack of Takedown-friendly objects. Both bridges are however interesting for this event as they narrow the span of the road.
Paradise Avenue is not recommended to be part of a players itinerary. It offers no sheltered parallel pathways and the drops and split ramp are dangerous to take (as a failed barrel roll may damage your car).
