IceCap Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog 3)
Deep snows can't stop me

IceCap Zone (アイスキャップ Aisukyappu?) is the fifth Zone of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and in the locked-on version, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. It is located on mountains of the Floating Island. Act 1 takes place inside labyrinthine ice caverns, while Act 2 takes place in a more brighter overworld with lower pathways under icy caverns.

During the game's storyline, Sonic and Tails use a regular cannon in Carnival Night Zone to launch themselves to the mountains of IceCap Zone. In the locked-on version, Knuckles uses a teleporter to travel from Carnival Night Zone to IceCap Zone. At the beginning of the IceCap Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Sonic starts out riding on a snowboard, while Tails skips that section and gets launched into an icy wall and falls into the caverns. Knuckles starts the Zone in the caverns where Sonic and Tails fall into.
