Things move fast in the world of Beyblades it seems. Since this list was last updated, four items have run into availability issues or have become discontinued by the manufacturer. These were the Metal Fury Hyper-Strike, the Super Vortex, the Extreme Graffiti Den and the Samurai Cyclone. We used three of these new spaces to include stadiums from the popular "slingshock" range, which takes its name from the way in which its arenas utilize tracks to slingshot blades back into the main ring for exciting collisions. These new additions were the Slingshock Rail Rush, with its half-ring/half-track design, the Turbo Cross Collision, which had multiple rail routes around the edges, and the more simplistic Burst Turbo Slingshock that features high walls for capturing projectile bits of blades after crashes.
We kept the Evolution Star Storm as it is as popular as it ever was amongst bladers and receives very little criticism, while the Battling Arena and Basic Beystadium also retained their places as simple yet popular designs that don't as much as some of the other models. The Burst Attack had to stay as well, being one of the only stadiums out there with the added dimension of interfering in matches with mechanical arms that can hit the spinning tops.
We added the Hypersphere Vertical Drop to give bladers an option for rolling their beys around a bowl, and the flat edge surrounding it adds a further dynamic to battles.
We swapped the Chaos Core for the Epic Rivals Battle Set, which fulfills many of the same criteria such as a spacious battle ring and penalty pits, except it's far less flimsy, although you have to pay double the price for the benefit.
The rather uninspiring B-09 Bay Standard was removed in favor of the Switchstrike Tower, which has two levels where your blades can engage in combat, and the stadium itself can be flipped over to go from two-player mode to four.

Beyblades have been around since 2000, and many kids (and adults alike) love these toys for their fast-spinning action and the resulting breakneck battles. Two or more of these tops can be launched in a stadium for combat, and the last one spinning is the victor. All stadiums are not created alike, though, so many avid players like to have several on hand. The selection featured here includes ones with wide open tops and those with protective shields (which come in handy when you’re using beys that are made to burst), as well as those with trap pockets, multiple levels, and textured surfaces to make battles even more challenging.
Joining our list today is the royal blue Battling Arena, a basic, budget-friendly choice that features colorful stickers and cool, jagged sides. This one provides no shied, which makes it easy to launch your spinners. Its size can comfortably accommodate up to three beys at a time. Leaving the selection is the Battle Arena, a similar choice – albeit bright yellow in color, smaller, and more lightweight – which is unavailable at this time.
When you give a Beyblade to a child, be sure to comply with the manufacturer’s stated age guidelines. For safety’s sake, when you’re playing with beys that are designed to burst, never lean over the stadium during a battle, and always battle inside the stadium and away from any fragile items.
