The Ice Cap Zone is the fifth zone in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles and is a snow covered landscape. After defeating Dr. Robotnik in the Carnival Night Zone Sonic and Tails use a cannon to reach the zone, whereas Knuckles takes a teleporter. At the start of the zone is long slope which Sonic uses a snow board to get down.
The zone is filled with ice and snow, icicles fall from the ceilings and a deep cave which makes up the bulk of act 1 with long winding tunnels which loop infinitely unless the player jumps at the right time to reach the correct paths. Dr. Robotnik has also installed freezing traps which can freeze the player into a block of ice. Once outside of the cave, floating ice can be seen drifting in the background through a large river.
This zone contains two bosses; a sub-boss and the main boss.
