The ice mine is an item that appears in Crash Nitro Kart. It is one of the special items that players sometimes get from ? crates. A player with this weapon may either place a blue ice mine on the ground or throw it ahead of them. Any racer who hits a blue ice mine will spin out and briefly be surrounded by an ice cube which causes the racer's cart to move as if they were on a slippery surface. If the player using it is juiced, it will change to a purple ice mine and the ice cube will last longer before melting.
