Special Zone

The Special Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog (16-Bit)
Special Zones, sometimes referred to as Special Stages, are zones that appear frequently throughout the series of games and are usually remarkably different in design and mechanics to that of the standard zones seen in the rest of the game. In general, the Special Zone is where Chaos Emeralds are collected, although there are a few exceptions to this rule. These should not be confused with Bonus Stages which are for collecting power-ups and additional items, but do not contain Chaos Emeralds.

Special Zones are also unique in that they have to be accessed via hidden gateways or completing specific tasks, such as finishing as Act with 50 rings or more.
