Welcome to Bandipedia!



The Lost Ruins is the second hub in Crash Team Racing. The area, like others, contains four tracks, a purple CTR token challenge, a boss (Papu Papu) and a Load/Save screen. It connects to Glacier Park and Gem Stone Valley. The design of the world seems to be based off on the ruin levels of Crash Bandicoot.

In Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, there is a mysterious door located next to the Tiger Temple warp pad. Collecting 5 golden eggs throughout the hubs and taking them to the door would unlock King Chicken as a playable character.
