Prehistoric Raceways

Burn your legacy into history by dominating the three Dino Crystal Caves tracks.  Each raceway provides unique, prehistoric challenges that are as intimidating as the dinosaurs themselves.  Bring about the extinction of your competition by taming these vicious race tracks.

The Big Chomper lives up to its name as drivers must launch themselves through a series of gargantuan jumps.  Time your jumps carefully while sabotaging rivals to send them falling into the earth’s core.

Dig City provides you with a number of paths to navigate, but be careful not to get lost in this labyrinth of tunnels as you attempt to leave your opponents in the dust.  Utilize the various passages to sneak up on other drivers, wreak some havoc, and steal the lead.

Crystal Cave Loop tests your handling abilities as you weave through sharp turns high above the ground and drive through dark tunnels.  Keep an eye out for a shortcut or two that will give you the upper hand on the competition as they struggle to round the tricky roads.

Dino Crystal Caves is a menacing challenge that embodies the ferocity of the dinosaurs.  These tracks unleash savage chaos upon drivers bold enough to traverse them but glory and rewards await those who are able to master them.

Speeding into the Halloween Spirit

Halloween is racing around the corner so how are you planning on celebrating this spooky holiday?  Does your family have a favorite tradition that happens every year or does a fun activity with friends come to mind?  Here are some suggestions to make sure you are up-to-speed with the haunted festivities:

Terrifying Treats: Try your hand in the kitchen by concocting some gruesome eats.  Create foods that resemble brains, eyeballs, or creepy crawlers using tasty ingredients like cupcakes, pretzels, and candy.  Your culinary creations may look scary but everyone will be shocked by how delicious they are.

Ghastly Games: Invite your friends over for a night filled with fright and fun.  Halloween spinoffs of classic party games like “Pin the Nose on the Jack-O-Lantern” is fun for participants of all ages.  The adventurous types may enjoy scavenger hunts that send a group of friends on a mission to collect haunted items or solve a spooky mystery.

Creepy Classics: Like the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”  Sometimes the most enjoyable activities are the ones people have done for years.  Take some of your favorite traditions like carving pumpkins or hosting a monster movie marathon and invite your friends and family!  While the activities may be the same, the experience will be unforgettable as you spend it with great company.

Whether you enjoy certain Halloween traditions every year or like to experiment with different activities, we want to hear how you will be celebrating the holiday this year!  Be creative, be safe, and have a blast with all the exciting options Halloween offers since it will be speeding away before you know it.

Freezer Burn

Staying cool when burning rubber can be a difficult undertaking but not when you can race through the bone-chilling Snowy Peak tracks.  Check out these three thrilling raceways for a new definition of “freezer burn”:

Ice Mountain

 

The Ice Mountain track is loaded with ramps and jumps.  Build up speed and time your jumps carefully or you may find yourself falling to the bottom of the rankings.  Speed boosts are located throughout the track to give you the burst you need to outrun and out-jump the competition.

Snowy Cliffs

 

Sometimes the best way to gain separation from your rivals is to lose them in a snow storm… or in the case of Snowy Cliffs, among the flurry of obstacles located throughout the track.  Combine speed and finesse to weave through perilous traps while your opponents get blindsided by Snowy Cliffs’ dangerous surprises.

Inuit Raceway

 

The perfect combination of speed, jumps, and obstacles, Inuit Raceway tests even the most seasoned drivers.  Put your reflexes to the test as you traverse this icy track riddled with various jumps, traps, and slippery roads.

Snowy Peak’s tracks provide unique challenges that leave rookie drivers in the cold.  Master these rocky roads and you will always feel warm as you burn rubber, leaving the competition in your powdery dust.
