Unlocking Egypt’s Ancient Power

Thousands of years ago, Egypt’s might was known across the world, its power embodied in its massive pyramids, towering statues of deities, and beautiful hieroglyphics of pharaohs and Egyptian life.  As the sands of time swept through the once-mighty nation, its history has been preserved in ancient relics.  However, many secrets dwell within the tombs, waiting to be claimed by a brave soul.

According to Egyptian legend, Ra, the God of the sun, harnessed an incredible power drawing from solar energy.  As the sun God, Ra was unparalleled in his strength and speed, being able to wield the sun’s energy and travel at the speed of light.  Due to his abilities, he was the unquestioned head deity and ruler of Egypt.

However, Ra’s fellow gods grew tired of his reign and devised a plan to overthrow their leader.  Led by Anubis, the god of the underworld, the Egyptian deities rebelled against Ra and stripped him of his power.  Unable to wield the sun’s might for themselves, the gods locked Ra’s power inside artifacts hidden in pyramids protected by deadly traps.  As centuries passed, the Egyptian gods faded away into myth, leaving only ruins and relics to tell of their tales.

Unearthing the History of Dino Crystal Caves

Believe it or not, Dino Crystal Caves was not always the thrilling race track it is today.  Before the tracks and ramps were built, Dino Crystal Caves used to be an excavation site where paleontologists searched for dinosaur fossils.

As they dug deeper for these rare bones, the scientists stumbled upon an unexpected finding—precious gems.  It was not long before news of this site’s unparalleled value spread and the masses began storming the caves hoping to get their hands on precious jewels.  After a frenzied search, the crowds left believing they had claimed all of the crystals the caves had to offer.  Only the paleontologists remained trying to round up the scattered bones.

Resuming their search, the scientists dug deep into the heart of the caves and uncovered secrets not even the public could have imagined.  In the darkest recesses of Dino Crystal Caves lay thousands of shining gems guarded by the fossils of their dinosaur protectors.  Afraid that new rumors of treasure would bring back the greedy populace, the team of scientists abandoned the excavation site, claiming that it was empty and too dangerous to explore.

Years later, the Dragons and Scorpions came across the abandoned site and chose to use it as the location for a race.  With no security or outside presence anywhere to be found, Dino Crystal Caves was the perfect spot for a heated competition between these rival teams.  However, neither group could have ever imagined what challenges and awe-inspiring sights were housed inside the caves.  Head over to Dino Crystal Caves to see for yourself what the scientists hoped to keep an eternal secret.

The History of Snowy Cliffs

The mystical Snowy Cliffs were always thought to be uninhabitable and dangerous, no place for someone to race. But when a few brave explorers finally climbed to the top, they discovered that they were wrong. On the three peaks of the Snowy Cliffs were three raceways left by an ancient culture, perfectly preserved in pristine condition.

Further exploration of the Snowy Cliffs has revealed an ancient tribal village, abandoned without any trace of the people that once lived there or why they might have left so suddenly. The village was centered around hot springs, the bursts of hot steam providing much-needed warmth to the chill that envelopes the Snowy Cliffs. Perhaps there was some sort of volcanic activity that had scared the villagers off, activity that ultimately did not result in anything.
