The Enerbeam Swing is a recurring gimmick in the Sonic Boom video games. It is a floating device used for swinging on with the Enerbeams.


The Enerbeam Swing is a box-shaped machine with a rocket engine on each side and an orb in the middle. Their color schemes differ between games. They are also always floating over wide gaps or obstacle-ridden paths.

In gameplay, the Enerbeam Swings are used to reach new areas with the Enerbeam by helping the player cross gaps. By using the Enerbeam on an Enerbeam Swing, the playable character will latch onto it and hang from it by the Enerbeam, allowing the player to swing from the starting point to another area. Sometimes, there are also rows of Enerbeam Swings which the player can latch onto one by one in succession to cross wider gaps.
