The Ice Mine is an item that only appears in Crash Nitro Kart. It is one of the special items that players sometimes get from ? crates. A player with this weapon may either place a blue ice mine on the ground or throw it ahead of them.
Any racer who hits a blue ice mine will spin out and briefly be surrounded by an ice cube which causes the racer's kart to move as if they were on a slippery surface. If the player using it is juiced, it will change to a purple ice mine and the ice cube will last longer before melting.
- Ice Mines along with Static Orbs, appear to be subsequent replacements for N. Brio's beakers from Crash Team Racing.
