The Spin Ramp is presented as a yellow and blue arrow-marked ramp that goes up a vertical wall.
The Spin Ramp serves as a way for the player to reach higher areas using Sonic's specific character abilities. When using it, Sonic enters a Spin Dash in front of it before shooting up along the Spin Ramp, thus sending him rolling upwards into the air. From there, the player can reach higher areas.
To use the Spin Ramp, the player must press to Spin Dash and then release the button to launch Sonic up the ramp.
