The Rooftop is a Paradise Plaza location in Dead Rising.

It is situated above the Paradise Plaza in the Willamette Parkview Mall, and connects the Security Room and the warehouse, which leads to the other locations of the mall.

This is where Frank finds Jeff and Natalie Meyer in the unannounced scoop Love Lasts a Lifetime.

Two paths to the warehouse can be found on the rooftop: a doorway and an elevator. The doorway leads to the upper levels of the warehouse, whereas the elevator can bring its occupants to the ground level of the warehouse. A vent connected to the air ducts is situated on a ledge. The Security Room is accessed through the air ducts.

In Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop, the door is locked, and Frank can only use the elevator. After complete Mark of the Sniper with an S rank, Otis will give you the Rooftop Key.

  • The elevator is part of the rooftop, not a separate room. In the image to the left, Zombies usually appear at 5:00pm, but Frank never left the rooftop, from before 5:00pm until 5:07, and there are no zombies in the elevator.
  • The image to the right is after Frank left the rooftop and returned to the security room, after 5:00 pm. The zombies are now in the elevator. In this unique case, the zombies actually appear in the elevator 'before the warehouse The Queen cutscene.
