Welcome to Bandipedia!



Lab Basement is the third unlockable battle arena in Crash Team Racing. It is unlocked by winning all of the cups (Wumpa Cup, Crystal Cup, Nitro Cup, and Crash Cup) on hard mode, or by entering a cheat code. It returns in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, though seemingly larger with more open space to accommodate more players, and is unlocked by default. It is a flat metal surface with various pitfalls in the ground for racers to fall into, and shares its theme with N. Gin Labs.
