3D Model from the source code.

The rooftops was the first level theme tried by the game developers. A track with this theme was made back in 1997 for one of the first builds of Re-Volt, and was the first ever made. It had the name Fiddlers on the Roof (probably a reference for the 1964 musical Fiddler on the Roof), but despite this, inside the game its name was Rooftops. The data folder name of this track was ROOF.

The track was scrapped due to the developers having found that it could bring a poor racing experience for the players, and also due to the restricted hardware resources available to that time.
