Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The original name for this location was Sunny Shores.
  • Hotel 23 is almost identical to its appearance at Paradise Palms, possibly as an Easter egg.
  • This is the first named location to have a SoFDeeZ restaurant. SoFDeeZ was previously outside of the Race Track (POI) near Paradise Palms.
  • The name of this location may be a reference to the "sweating" playstyle, where a player attempts to play technically perfect (often ruining other people's fun in the process).
  • Sweaty Sands has the most chests of any location in Chapter 2, with Treasure chest (tier 1).png 34 Chests. The only location that had more was Tilted Towers.
  • As of v13.20, Sweaty Sands is unique as it is the only location in the game to have two Reboot Van symbols on the map. This is because the first one is the original one from before the flood, and the second one is the new one.
