  • The name of this level could be named after an area in the USA called Tornado Alley, which suffers from hundreds of tornadoes each year.
  • In the beginning of the level, Coco says "Looks like Neo's using them to make the tornadoes!", making it the first and only time where Dr. Cortex is mentioned by his first name.
  • In the Hidden Palace prototype leak of Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, this was the second level. This means that this was the only level in the game to have never had a known placement change from the prototyping stage.
