There is an outdoor section with brick ruins, icy machinery and a snowy pitch. Snow falls around the mountains outside. There is an underwater tunnel with the view of the seafloor underneath. The sea is above the snow and is easy to find as Barin is ice, snow and lava. Barin is in a layout with the hubworld being on the sea in-slope and with the tracks on the outside of the hub, not far away, with the exception of Deep Sea Driving, which is quite far under the sea.
- Its name is a pun in the word "barren".
- As its name implies, Barin is an uninhabitable wasteland. However, in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, Barin has parka-wearing anthropomorphic sharks wander around Meteor Gorge.
