Dragon Mines is a race course in . It is raced on in the Crystal Cup in arcade mode (as well Crash Team Racing Sewer Speedway, Tiger Temple and N. Gin Labs) and the purple (with Roo's Tubes, Papu's Pyramid and Hot Air Skyway) Gem Cup. It is Komodo Joe's home track.
At the start of the race the player goes down a big hill, past an underground lake and stalagmites. Next, the player encounters a minecart track where minecarts might even hit the player. After that a spiral bridge is ascended. More minecarts are at the top. And then the player arrives back
to the starting line. It is possible to drive through the minecart route from before the spiral bridge to after but without protection or
turbos the player will get squashed.
In adventure mode, the course is located in the
Glacier Park. It's also the boss stage of Komodo Joe.
It is featured in the intro where
Dingodile is trying to tune his kart.
Some fans believe that this stage was once meant for Koala Kong, as he was fought in a mine in Crash Bandicoot. However, he wasn't in the game.
