The level starts off with Crash. The player has to make their way through several corridors and classrooms. In certain corridors there are hall monitors which Crash has to hide from, simalar to the Tribsmen looking out for intruders in Totem Hokum. Eventually, Crash makes it to a library flooded with nuclear waste, possibly from the boiler room. Crash has to make it out before he is killed by it.
Next the player takes control of Cortex. Like Crash, he has to make his way through classrooms and corridors to reach Nina's dormitory. In certain corridors, Cortex will be chased by termites and in certain classrooms Cortex will have to defeat frogs to progress.
Finally, Cortex makes it to Nina's dormitory where Rooftop Rampage begins.
