'Fortnite' Sky Platform Locations & Ride the Slipstream Week 1 Challenge Guide

Fortnite Season 9 begins with a new batch of Weekly Challenges for Week 1. In this guide we'll reveal all seven Sky Platform locations and explain how to ride the Slipstream at Neo Tilted and Mega Mall.

All Sky Platform Locations in Fortnite

Sky Platforms are a new feature on the Battle Royale map, and they look like this. They're these big floating contraptions with Slipstreams. As you'll see on the map graphics below, these are actually marked as squares with four rings close to them. With that in mind, you shouldn't have much trouble visiting these locations.

How to Ride the Slipstream in Fortnite

Another Week 1 Challenge that may be giving you trouble revolves around riding Slipstreams in Neo Tilted and Mega Mall. In case you don't know, Slipstreams are the massive, circular vents that are new to the Season 9 map.

Especially if you're heading to Mega Mall or Neo Tilted from your Glider, landing within a Slipstream shouldn't be much of a problem. Simply land in the circular vent's path and follow it around the entire location. The air current pushes you in that direction once you're in, so just sit back and enjoy the ride.
