For Bonus Stages in general, see here.

Bonus Stages in Knuckles' Chaotix are special areas that the player can visit separate from the main game. Bonus Stages can be accessed by entering the Giant Rings that are hidden in the regular Stages if the player has at least twenty rings.



When entering the Bonus Stage, the player free-falls in 3D perspective through an endless pit. Items are scattered around. The player can hit the block to obtain an item. When the rings are out, the player will exit the Bonus Stage.
