A collection of ruined towns on top of Rukhs, or "living fossils".
Playable characters (story mode)
Levitated Ruin is the fifth World in . It is a collection of ruins of towns built on the back of giant flying manta-like fossils (referred to as Rukh by Sonic and the Secret Rings Ali-Baba) flying in the atmosphere.
This stage is set in the sky, as
Sonic runs between a series of ancient Rukhs whilst looking for Sinbad the Sailor. Strong winds blow during this stage and they will push Sonic back unless he is running very quickly. One of the stages primary gimmicks is when Sonic runs through the air along a materializing pathway whilst chasing a gargoyle. After completing the zone's primary mission, Sonic finds Sinbad locked in a cage. A secondary mission then opens up, in which Sonic starts out in a central tower and uses zip lines to access four other towers. Once reaching the top of each, a mirror is used to destroy one of the locks on Sinbad's cage, and Sonic is warped back to the center where he can then head in a different direction.
As you approach the lever to switch the second mirror, you will need to use the brake for a few seconds. You’ll see Big trying to keep his balance on top of a random tower in Mission 5.
The materializing pathway gimmick later served as inspiration for a similar gimmick that was used in
Sonic and the Black Knight's Dragon's Lair, as well as Sonic Colors' Starlight Carnival. This is the only stage in
Sonic and the Secret Rings without a vocal BGM. This place is almost certainly based off of
Angel Island, as they are both floating islands and it is also where Sonic meets Knuckles/Sinbad for the first time. The Rukh in this stage are likely named after the Roc of Arabic folklore, a gigantic bird capable of carrying elephants and sometimes called the rukh in Persian. The Roc is a creature usually involved in the story of Sinbad.
