Zone description : A place where the eternal nighttime festivities never end, the Carnival Night Zone, located somewhere on Angel Island is a location of peculiar beauty, where the visitor will be dazzled by the electric lights and entangled by the maze of carnival paths. The entire Carnival Night Zone is filled with balloons, which Sonic, with the proper skill, is able to use to his advantage. The festive cannons that are used to shoot fireworks are just as easily used by the speeding hedgehog.

After his defeat, Dr. Robotnik lands on Angel Island, where he finds an energy source even more powerful than the Chaos Emeralds, namely the Master Emerald. However, it was protected by the powerful guardian Knuckles the Echidna. Despite his power, Knuckles is rather gullible, so Robotnik convinces the echidna that Sonic and Tails are trying to steal the Master Emerald, thus turning Knuckles against the heroes. Soon, Sonic and Tails arrive on Angel Island and are immediately attacked by Knuckles, who takes the Chaos Emeralds from the heroes and hides them in Special Stages portals around the island. Sonic and Tails have to search all over Angel Island to find the portals in the form of giant rings while chasing Robotnik and Knuckles along the way.
After defeating Dr. Robotnik in the skies over the Marble Garden Zone, Tails carries Sonic to the Carnival Night Zone, where the heroes continue their adventure to free Angel Island. As Sonic and Tails make their way through the electrifying holiday roads, they battle the Bowling Spin robot as well as Robotnik himself in his new machine, the Egg Gravitron. After defeating the villain, Sonic and Tails climb into the cannon and shoot themselves flying into the Ice Cap Zone.
After destroying the Launch Base Zone, Sonic and Tails followed Knuckles into one of the portals, but it did not lead to the Special Stage. Instead, it led them to the Master Emerald altar. After placing the Chaos Emeralds around the Master Emerald, Sonic and Tails find the portals to the Special Stages again, where they energize the Emeralds, turning them into Super Emeralds with the power of the Master Emerald. Using the power of the Super Emeralds, Sonic and Tails finally defeat Knuckles and Robotnik.
Sonic & Knuckles (1994)
After the defeat of Dr. Robotnik, however, many of the evil doctor’s robots and machines remained on the island. One robot, called Egg Robo, had enough intelligence to replace Dr. Robotnik and rebuild an army of robots and weapons itself. After dropping bombs on Knuckles, Egg Robo steals the Master Emerald, forcing the echidna to go in pursuit. Like Sonic and Tails, Knuckles also visits the Carnival Night Zone where he also battles Bowling Spin. Unlike Sonic and Tails, however, Knuckles evades the location, where Egg Robo was waiting for him in the Egg Gravitron, simply teleporting to Ice Cap Zone using special teleportation device.
On the way, Knuckles finds seven Chaos Emeralds and absorbs them, activating the form of Super Knuckles. After destroying Launch Base, Knuckles enhances the Chaos Emeralds on the Master Emerald altar, turning them into Super Emeralds. Using their power, Knuckles transforms into his Hyper Knuckles form. Eventually, Knuckles catches up with Egg Robo at Sky Sanctuary, defeats Neo Metal Sonic and retrieves the Master Emerald. After his victory, Knuckles returns Master Emerald to its altar and restores peace to Angel Island.
