Welcome to Bandipedia!



Skull Rock is the first battle arena in Crash Team Racing as well as Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled and is the N. Sanity Beach battle arena. It is a small island with high cliff walls acting as barriers around the edges. The most distinguishing feature of this arena is a giant skull-shaped stone carving in the center of the arena (also seen in Makin' Waves). Apart from this, it features a bridge which travels through the center of the skull rock, which can also be driven under at ground level. The arena is generally symmetrical except for one corner enclosed by cliff walls and a small hill on one side of the skull rock. A few palm trees and totem poles are placed around the edge of the arena. The portal to Skull Rock is adjacent to the N. Sanity Beach trophy podium.

  • This is the only arena that does not include TNT or Nitro crates during the crystal challenge.
  • A glitch exists involving missiles in the multiplayer battle mode in this arena. When a missile is launched at a certain angle and locks onto a player beneath the bridge, the missile(s) will circle in place until it hits another player or an obstacle.
