Top Ten Sonic the Hedgehog Stages

The Top Ten
1 City Escape (Sonic Adventure 2)

I loved going to San Francisco, and this level just preserved the place for me.

I love escape from the city I can sing the whole song right now

It's ironic how Sonic doesn't actually escape the city

This level is a classic, and the music makes it better.

2 Green Hill (Sonic 1)

WHY IS THIS NOT #1?! I mean seriously! This is what started EVERYTHING best toon to hum or whistle to it's the most memorable! If you are a TRUE sonic fan this would be number 1 and would have to at least hear it once a day to keep your sanity

I'd put it at number 1 if it wasn't overrated and made an appearance in so many games.

Best Sonic stage ever. why is this #2. Sure, they've remade it in just about every Sonic game, but it's icionce

Make it 1 first zone first game bro

3 Speed Highway (Sonic Adventure)

This stage stays true to Sonic with the awesome amount of speed it offers. The platforming sections are also a lot of fun. Tails has his own version of the stage as well, so that's a plus.

UP N DOWN N ALL AROUND! The music is dope. I mean dope as in cool, not weed. It sounds like Gorillaz did the theme for this stage.

Really cool stage

So Good For Speed Runners And Awesome Theme At The end of The Level!

4 Chemical Plant Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog 2)

The amount of speed you get in this zone is amazing. There's a bunch of different paths you can take to clear the zone as well. Really, the only part of the zone that I don't like is the water section towards the end of Act 2, because it's sort of a pace breaker. Everything else is great, though

Yas cool tunezzz

Chemical Plant zone is one of the highlights of the Genesis era of the Classic Games, with its fast paced platforming to the awesome remake in Generations, Chemical Plant is truly a gem to behold

5 Ice Cap (Sonic 3/Sonic Adventure)

Amazing level, love the snowboarding part and the music is so good

6 Radical Highway (Sonic Adventure 2)

Cool stage like speed highway

My favorite. sa2b stage. The music good.

7 Emerald Coast (Sonic Adventure)

Really should be at least number 3 beautiful stage calming music

8 Casino Night Zone (Sonic 2)

My favorite sonic stage

9 Rooftop Run (Sonic Unleashed)

It's the best stage in the series honestly, it really is. The music is very catchy and fitting, the look is absolutely beautiful, and the stage itself is exhilarating and it's just more fun than any other stage, especially stupid Green Hill Zone.

Easily the best stage in the series, though Final Rush is a close second.

Best Sonic Unleashed stage (at day, at night, it's lowest of the low)

Such an amazing stage from such an underrated game.

10 Metal Harbor (Sonic Adventure 2)

By far my favorite stage in the game. It give an awesome amount of speed that remains constant throughout most of the stage, so platforming sections don't really break the pace. It can be really frustrating going for the higher handle on the rocket for an A rank, but when you do finally pull it off, it's amazing.

The Contenders
11 Sandopolis (Sonic & Knuckles)
12 Studiopolis Zone (Sonic Mania)

A new levels with lot of references and thought put into it. Not to mention, it's fun.

Easily the best 2D Sonic stage.

13 Windy Valley (Sonic Adventure)

As simple of a stage it is, there's a great chance for short cuts with sonic. Fantastic music. You can skip the entire stage with tails, and you can rack up ridiculous time bonuses with Gamma. It has the best remix in the series ('The Air' is a remix of green grove from 3d blast), and is the sole reason I bought sonic and mario at the London Olympics. (It's also the stage that got me to love adventure 1 and is why I play it every week)

I like this stage and I like the wind in the stage

14 Crisis City (Sonic 06)

It's so easy get good at the game bud

I love this! So hard but amazing

The whole city's on fire! WhooOOAAA! THAT TORNADO IS CARRYING A CAR!

15 Star Light Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog)

Other than Green Hill Zone, the Star Light Zone is probably the most memorable zone in Sonic 1. It has the perfect balance between speed and platforming, and the music is excellent as well. I would say Star Light is definitely the best zone in the first Sonic game, and it's a candidate for the best zone in all the classic Sonic games.

16 Death Egg (Sonic & Knuckles)
17 Rail Canyon (Sonic Heroes)

I love Geri ding on rails

18 Final Rush (Sonic Adventure 2)

I love this stage I feel like a B.A grinding on Rails!

19 Stardust Speedway (Sonic CD)

The music is amazing JP of course

What do you get when you combine a futuristic highway with Past, Present, and Good/Bad Future, and lotsa “HUEHUE’s”, Stardust Speedway from Sonic CD. I really had a blast when playing the IOS remake of Sonic CD… With the Japan/PAL soundtrack, though it took me a few tries to defeat Metal Sonic, but still, son’t avoid this one. It’s fast, bright, and “HUEHUE” infested!

20 Kingdom Valley (Sonic 06)

The speed section was a really cool looking level section. The best speed section in the game.

A very fun stage, best stage in such a broken game!

21 Sky Sanctuary Zone (Sonic & Knuckles)

Cool and I love s&k

Sort of short and hard in sonic and knuckles, but amazing music and great remake in sonic generations

22 Wave Ocean (Sonic 06)

It's calm and in the ocean

Best stage fack you all

23 Hydrocity Zone (Sonic Mania)

Hydrocity is fun and fast and if you take the right the path you can get through nice and easy and avoid a lot of the water plus music is great

24 Launch Base (Sonic the Hedgehog 3)
25 Egg Carrier (Sonic Adventure)

I mean this is a hub world not stage but I love it
