Welcome to Bandipedia!



Orient Express is the third level of the first warp room in Crash Bandicoot: Warped and the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remake of the third game.

This is the first level in the series where Coco is playable and sees her riding along the Great Wall of China, which is still under construction at this point in time, with her new tiger friend, Pura. This level is named after the Orient Express, a famous historical long-distance passenger train which used to pass through China when it was in service.


This level is almost identical to the warthog levels from Crash Bandicoot and the Polar levels from Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, except Pura can charge indefinitely.

Obstacles along the path include multiple Chinese dragons, rolling barrels (which can be charged through), barrel-filled wagons, and lab assistants in disguise as brick-laying peasants. Complicating the quest for the clear gem are several vertically split paths, where Coco can either simply stay on the ground, or briefly launch herself up to a higher level using ramps with lab assistants hiding under them.

Being specifically designed for Coco, Crash cannot visit this level in the N. Sane Trilogy.

  • Coco can bump into the various hanging baskets around this level to receive Wumpa Fruit. Wumpa Fruit can be obtained this way even in time trial mode.
  • Given the distinct look of the watchtowers, this level, along with Midnight Run, are located on the south end of the Great Wall, somewhere in the Jinshanling section.
  • The time period of this level, along with Midnight Run, is during the reign of Qin Shi Huang at a time where various parts of the Great Wall of China are being constructed. The banners with Cortex's face are a reference to the emperor and the red banners read "Ten-Thousand Mile Long Wall" (萬里長城 wanli changcheng), the Chinese term for the Great Wall of China.
