A spiral lift is a style of lift hill that is shaped as an upwards spiral. Unlike an electric spiral lift, a spiral lift is physically pushed by a rotating structure located in the middle of the spiraling track. This type of lift is found on various types of roller coasters, most notably Zamperla's Volare.
