Speed Slider is a one of five main stages in Chaotix that make up Newtrogic High Zone. Set on a rollercoaster, it is a stage designed to emphasise speed.
During development it was known as Amusement Park.
Speed Slider is the fastest of all the stages present in the game. As its name implies, it is built for characters such as Mighty and Espio, who lack aerial abilities but are quick on their feet. Maintaining speed is a matter of utilizing Ring Power snap techniques and being able to change direction quickly.
The stage is notorious for its speed and the presence of an interesting 3D rendered lift that moves up and falls. With this object, it is possible to access more places at the level, and it is really helpful when having to go up quickly. Other features to find in this high-speed stage are balloons to catapult players in the air like those seen in Carnival Night Zone, and big bells that send players to lower sections.
