The Balance Beams are thick grey beams decorated with glowing pulses of pink light and a pink upper surface. They are either hanging on the sides of walls or levitating in midair.
The Balance Beams' purpose is to provide ways for Amy to traverse level environments using her specific character abilities. When using a Balance Beam, Amy climbs on top of it and performs Beam Walk. This allows the player to take different paths throughout the levels which are specifically meant for her. Certain Balance Beams however, must be extracted from a wall by the use of a Button or the Enerbeam. To use a Balance Beam in gameplay, the player simply has to touch it with Amy and she will automatically grab it and swing herself onto it.
Balance Beams do not necessarily provide safe passage. Some Balance Beams will suddenly fall apart while others feature nearby hazards, such as a spiked pendulum swinging between two beams or carts rolling along them.
