The Read Lane super jump

Read Lane is a street in the northern section of the country area of Paradise City in Burnout Paradise. It is a good drifting location, and is home to a popular challenge involving barrel rolling onto the railway tracks successfully. These Railway tracks help link Read Lane to West Crawford Drive, Uphill Drive and the similar Lewis Pass. Read Lane is also an entrance into Paradise National Park.

Landmarks of Interest[]

  • A Split Ramp on the left side of the road (when traveling Southbound)
  • Throughout the northern half of Read, there are large roofs over the road made of corrugated iron.
  • On the left side of the road there is a small house with picnic tables, and some steps down to a platform. This is Vista Point, a sightseeing location that overlooks Silver Lake, the Rockridge Dam and the South Bay Expressway Bridge. There are signs for it on the sides of the street, however a red sign at the top tells drivers to go East along North Rouse Drive to get to it.
  • Further down the street there is a path that leads up to the Vista Point platform.
  • There is also a significant Super Jump on the cliff edge side of the road that can only be used when going up Read Lane. The Jump has splits on either side, and is the location for Barrel Roll challenges onto the railway below.
  • A grey suspension bridge can also be accessed on the outer side of the next curve. This bridge for the railway can be quickly used for aforementioned Barrel Roll challenges, as well as a makeshift shortcut to West Crawford and Uphill Drives, as well as Lewis Pass.
  • Near the suspension bridge is a lodge for Frankies Camp Ground.
  • At the base of the lane is a large wooden sign spanning the road, marking the boundary into Paradise National Park.
