Spinning Crosses

As Sonic runs past, his speed charges up the cross which in turn sends him propelling up a steep incline. The extra push allows Sonic to defy physics and walk up a wall that would otherwise be too steep to overcome.

Spinning crossess in the modern games

Dash pads perform a similar function as spinning crosses in the modern games.
