Thunder Struck is the ninth race course in Crash Nitro Kart and the final race track in Fenomena. It features huge trees, many jumps and it always rains. It is a difficult track for most players because there are no shortcuts and there are numerous obstacles the player has to avoid, such as the spiked swings. In the GBA version of the game however, the track is less detailed, featuring no trees except for the ones in the background, no rain, but still has many jumps. After time passed, road palette, sky background and everything will change color (only in GBA version of the game). It is used in the Aku Cup and the Purple Gem Cup (along with Android Alley and Tiny Temple).

This track returned in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled.
