Our 26th track is Clockwork Wumpa! Here we can discuss each racetrack, what we love, what we hate, Easter Eggs we've found and anything related to that track! Let everyone know your thoughts.

9/10 for me. One of my favourite remastered tracks. I didn't think too much of it in CNK but now. And the fact they have the building powered with Wumpa Fruit is a great touch. A difficult but rewarding track as well for maintaining the blue flame for the entire lap. And I do enjoy the music for this one too.

I love Clockwork Wumpa. The hitboxes on the gears are kind of finicky, but that's about it for issues with it. As CNK's counterpart to one of CTR's best courses (Cortex Castle), it delivers, and that single flaw is the only reason I can't give it a 10.

Perfect length, good layout, great hazard with the activation crate near the end, a challenging enough blue fire course to the point most players can not keep it for long and you can smoke lobbies with it, great music and visuals, there's a lot of things I like about it.

Born to lose, live to win!

10/10. This track is tied with Electron Avenue as my favorite track in the game. Same goes for CNK when I was a kid too. The soundtrack is amazing (I prefer the classic full promo version). The clock factory idea is really cool and amazing with beautiful brown wooden antique colors. Reminds me of old brown wooden furniture from my early childhood. I love the 2 shortcuts in this game. The 1st shortcut with the gears makes you think it’s the right path when you 1st play this course. The exclamation box is a pit trap that can get anyone. It’s like you’re driving inside of an old fashioned clock that’s really creative. Wumpa factory. Antique Clock factory. Whatever you call it. It’s amazing. I can’t describe much more about it. So much nostalgia man. The turns are challenging as well as trying to avoid the 1st couple gears that can smash you, but when you can U-turn/air brake and keep blue flame, it flows very well! Soundtrack gets stuck in my head all day.

I really only have a problem with the second gear, the first one seems very easy (kinda like how I always lose to the first barrel in Sewer Speedway but always manage to avoid the second one).

7/10. I initially hated this track, but I've kind of come around on it. It's worth noting that the gear shortcut is one of the least impactful shortcuts in the entire game, it saves at best a second or so and is almost never worth the risk IMO.

It's really cool-looking with some fun shortcuts. Reminds me of the Crash equivalent of Tick Tock Clock.
