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 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.

  • This one, along with Midnight Run, are the only levels in the game where it's impossible to reach the maximum limit of 9:59:96 in time trial mode.

  • Originally, the barrel carts in this level used to have only a single row of 3 barrels. That was changed in the final version, with the addition of another row of 3 barrels. The same concept applies for Midnight Run.
