Magic carpets appear in the Arabian levels High Time and Flaming Passion, and Hang'em High if one enters the level through the alternate entry point. They are aqua and yellow in Hang'em High and Flaming Passion, while they are blue and green in High Time. They are platforms that move back and forth in either a left-right or an up-down pattern.
Three of the Arabian levels (Runaway Rug, Now It's Istanbul, and Rock the Casaba) have a special type of magic carpet. These particular magic carpets are found inside of magic carpet crates, and the game has set locations where Crash gets off the carpet and returns to the ground. They also appear during the Evil Crunch boss fight, though Crash is automatically on the carpet at the start of that fight.
While riding on the carpet, Crash automatically moves to the right at a fixed speed, but the player can still control where Crash goes, and has the ability to shoot magic balls that destroy enemies and crates. Crash instantly dies if he goes off-screen (usually by being pushed by a wall) and Aku Aku cannot protect Crash from this type of death.
A magic carpet appears with Crash as a trading card in Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage.
Magic carpets appear in the N. Sane Trilogy remaster of the third game, reprising the role they had in the original version of that game.
