The carousel sees the player and partner trapped near a carousel from which Dr. Robotnik will launch a rocket, while Dr. Robotnik himself hides in the center of the machine. Although this ride resembles a carousel, the "horses" on poles are replaced by spiked platforms. The player is unable move around normally because the floor is rotating. If the player attempts to move around by jumping, he/she is exposed to the spiked platforms. In order to defeat the boss, the player must successfully hit its blue Dark Ring rotating around its middle eight times, avoiding the platforms.
