Water is extremely common in this level. Falling into water will instantly make the player lose a life.
Crash can die from falling from too high in most part of the level.
White-colored bats appear commonly throughout this level. When they see Crash, they will swoop down at him. They can be defeated with any attack, but it is interesting to note that when they are shot at by Cortex, the first one merely stuns them and makes them unable to fly, while the second shot kills them.
At the beginning of the level, there are several icebergs which serve as platforms, but, however, once you exit the cave with the icebergs and enter the inside of the mountain, the icebergs will sink slightly and will hurt Crash if he touches them.
Penguins appear frequently throughout this level with rockets strapped to their backs. When they see Crash, they will either rocket straight toward him or shoot up into the air and attempt to divebomb him.
