Road Crash (じわれのハイウェイを ゴー! lit. On the cracked highway, go! in Japanese) is the fourteenth level and is the fourth level of the third warp room in Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped and its HD remake, N. Sane Trilogy. The player once again rides a motorcycle and must win the race to get a crystal. There are some holes around sharp curves so the player will have to brake quickly.

The secret level, Hot Coco, is accessible from this level. Just after the first set of roadworks, an alien sign can be seen on the left; knocking it over will warp Crash to Hot Coco. The N. Sane Trilogy version of this level adds a hint towards this secret exit: as Crash is about to pass by the sign, a bird will fly by and smack into it with an audible cartoony "splat" sound, alerting the player to the sign.

In the N. Sane Trilogy remake, in which Coco is as fully playable as her brother, all motorcycle levels are exclusive to Crash. As such, Coco cannot enter this stage or its other three variants.

Stage Parameters




  • All four motorbike levels take place at a different time of the day: Hog Ride (midday), Orange Asphalt (sunset), Road Crash (late night) and Area 51? (overnight).
  • This track is in fact a complete circuit which can be made obvious if the players miss the crates at the start, as they can be seen when they reach the finish line. The lab assistant racers continue driving past the finish line, so it is possible to get lapped.
  • This is the only level in the game where every single crate transforms into a time crate in time trial mode.
  • According to an unofficial guide, this level used to have 29 crates, instead of 25.
  • The name of the stage is a pun on the video game Road Rash.
  • The player object (Crash), usually by the name of "obj_willy", is actually called "obj_willy#you_f***" (albeit uncensored) in this level's file. These similar instances also happen to some enemies in Crash 3.
  • In Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, the alien sign is indestructible during Time Trial, making Hot Coco inaccessible in the mode.
  • The secret exit is referenced in the scenery of El Pogo Loco in Crash Bash, during the Crystal Challenge.
  • Due to the same level theme and the nature of the secret exit in this level, it could be possible that it was initially going to be a warp to Area 51? instead of Hot Coco.
