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.
- Coco Park
- Tiger Temple
- Papu's Pyramid
- Dingo Canyon
- Papu Papu's Challenge (Papu's Pyramid)
- Rampage Ruins (Purple Token Challenge)
This hub is a ancient city built below, torchs, tiki statues and buildings. What was shown on the edges of this hub are: trees, palm trees, small cliffs surrounding the area, native houses and pyramids in background.
In earlier versions of the game, you would be able to access this area from the start of the game with both Coco Park and Tiger Temple unlocked by default. In fact, you couldn’t even race Ripper Roo unless if you did a track from this area because Sewer Speedway needed 4 trophies. Not 3.
