A water block is a block type in the Platform Racing series introduced in Platform Racing 2 and Creation.


As its name implies, players swim inside this block, with how fast they go depending on their acceleration stat (as well as speed in Platform Racing 3). How much of their body needs to be in it to swim varies by game. In PR2 any part will work, while only their legs count in PR3. Although acceleration affects both a user's vertical and horizontal speed in PR2, only horizontal speed is accounted for in PR3 to prevent trapping issues. The block is also always translucent in PR3, while in PR2 it's only see-through when a player is swimming in it.

In Creation, the block is less unique as players can already pass through all blocks, but they do fall slowly when standing still on them. Water blocks can also be combined with grass to form dirt and with lava to create rocks. They're also used to put fires on users out.
