Gingerbread Joyride is a race course in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled that was released on December 12, 2019 for the Winter Festival Grand Prix. It is a Christmas/candy-themed track, and was featured as part of the Bonus Cup.
The track takes place within a cosy town composed mostly of gingerbread houses surrounded by a snowy plain during twilight. The town is populated with jumping sentient gum drops and jellycubes, two of which (one blue and one green) appear as obstacles at the end of the track.
The track itself contains a plethora of bends, some sharp and some curved. Towards the beginning the track extends on to a bridge with two path ways, one going even higher and one going down. It's here a shortcut hiding under the higher path can be taken. However said shortcut is partially blocked by a short barrier, requiring a lot of a speed to make it over. Fortunately such speed can be easily achieved as right before this short cut there is a strip of boost pads.
Following this a smaller short cut is visible towards the end of the rounder corners where a small slope allows racers to leap into a further part of the track. However attempting this short cut with insufficient speed will count as going off the track and reset you a short distance back.
Finally right towards the end there are two bouncing jellycubes that squish any racers that touch them. These jellycubes reorient themselves periodically to either take up the middle of the track or the two sides of the track.
- If a racer is hit by one of the jellycubes, they will temporarily be tinted either blue or green depending on which jellycube they were hit by.
