Speed City game mechanics

So, here’s a quick primer to all the key mechanics in Speed City:

The game is split into seven realms. There are seven available in total, but only six available without spending Robux, Roblox’s premium inter-game currency. These realms have different requirements to enter and different crates to access:

  1. Winter Realm requires 2,500 steps to enter.
  2. Original Map requires 50,000 steps to enter.
  3. Volcano Realm requires 75,000 steps to enter. It is also where the Legendary Crate is available.
  4. Breach Realm requires 500,000 steps to enter. It is also where the Beach Crate and Ocean Crate are available.
  5. Infinite Road requires 1,000,000 steps to enter.
  6. Shadow Dimension requires 75,000 steps to enter and is only accessible via the Volcano realm. It is where the Dark Crate is available.
  7. Elite City requires the Elite Gamepass to enter, which is only available by spending Robux.
  8. Ghost City requires 500,000 steps to enter and is only accessible via the Beach realm. It is where the Pink Crate, Yellow Crate, White Crate, and Green Crate are available.

Making smart purchasing decisions in Speed City

Steps are the main currency in Speed City, with several ways to collect and several ways to spend. Players can earn steps by walking or running around, with a good step multiplier being placed on some trails. Steps can also be earned by jumping through red rings in certain realms and by winning races, with each win granting 250 steps. Steps can be used to purchase crates, earn in-game ranks, get more speed, and get placed on the leaderboard.

They can also be earned by collecting orbs placed around the map, preferably with a trail equipped that has a good orb multiplier. Orbs are coloured balls that spawn in every area of the Speed City overworld. Each orb grants a different amount of steps based on its colour. Blue Orbs grant 25, Purple Orbs grant 50, Green Orbs grant 75, and so on. Mega Rainbow Orbs, the most lucrative of all, grants 100,000 steps.

Finally, Races are a key attraction and one of Speed City’s greatest attractions. In Races, players battle it out to reach the end goal before all the others. Although you likely will not win if you are not very fast, speed is not the only deciding factor in winning a race. It can also depend on internet speed, device speed, or other glitches. If a player wins, their name will be displayed on the screen for all their opponents. The winner will also receive a notification on their screen stating that they have been rewarded +250 steps. The prize is the same for winning every race in the game.

The name may confuse you, but in Speed City ‘trails’ are essentially the same as pets. Trails are items that can be equipped to boost a player’s stats: like steps and orbs collected, or jump height capability. Examples of trails include the Chill Trail, the Plain Blue Trail, the Pumpkin Trail, the City Trail, and the Radioactive Beast Mode Trail.


The only wait to obtain new trails is by purchasing Trail Crates. These are the game’s version of loot, which are purchased with steps and used to unlock trails. These Crates vary in cost and delivery chances, but all deliver trails. Trail Crates are the game’s version of loot, which are purchased with steps and used to unlock trails.
