Good, you've finished the first island, I hope you had collected gems in N. Sanity Beach, Boulders and Hog Wild. Hurry! Ripper Roo is waiting for you! - Level description
Up the Creek (じょうりゅうを めざせ lit. Aiming Upstream in Japanese) is the tenth level (including boss fights) and is the first level of the second island (or penultimate level of the first island in the Beta) in and the Crash Bandicoot remaster of the first game. It is the second river type of level in the game and is similar to N. Sane Trilogy Upstream. Crash and Coco encounter venus fly traps and other enemies here.

Translation of Aku Aku Hints in the Japanese Version
If you pass this stage, you'll fight the boss Ripper Roo. He is a crazy guy who constantly jumps around, his way of jumping has regular patterns. Look at him, he has serious characteristics.
The level title could be a reference to the popular saying "up the creek without a paddle", a reference to the fact that Crash/Coco do not wield a paddle in this level.
It also could be a reference to the 1984 movie of the same name.
In the prototype, Up the Creek is on the first island instead of the second island.
The two bounce crates in the prototype of this level both contain Tawna Tokens.
The same pause glitch found in the prototype of Upstream is present here.
The Tawna Bonus round on the prototype is the same as in Native Fortress in the prototype.
