Ghost Town (にげろや にげろ lit. Escape and Escape in Japanese) is the twenty-seventh level and is the second level of the sixth warp room in Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex. In this level, Crash races Crunch in a mine cart in a three lap race. Ten relics are required to play this level. One gem is obtainable by breaking all the crates and another is obtainable by beating Crunch.
The player cannot activate the nitro switch crate until the third lap. This was cleverly planned by the developers, since there is a sequence of three ! crates, the last two of which are outline crates that are activated by the previous ! crate. The third ! crate fills in an outline crate with the nitro switch crate.
- For a long time, this was the only level in the series where the nitro switch crate first appears as an outline crate. Then Future Tense became the second level on June 29, 2018 when it was released as downloadable content for the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.
- The level can be beaten without pressing a single button on the controller.
- This is the only level in a Crash Bandicoot platforming game with a lap system, which is used in racing games.
